Editorial Reviews


"Envy—almost all of us struggle with it, and almost none of us will admit to it. In this eminently practical book, Tilly Dillehay shows us envy in its many disguises so that we can learn to recognize its itching and writhing presence in our own lives. More than that, she celebrates the goodness of borrowed glory in God's world, forcing us either to rot in our resentment or to learn to rejoice in the glorious inequalities that God so loves. This book is worth much reflection and meditation. I highly recommend it."
Joe Rigney, professor, Bethlehem College and Seminary, and author of Lewis on the Christian Life and The Things of Earth

"Seeing Green gently but persistently exposed the envy in my life and made me want something better. Tilly Dillehay writes honestly and compellingly about her own struggles and growth, leaving readers with confident hope that we don't have to give envy a home in our hearts."
Betsy Childs Howard, editor, The Gospel Coalition, and author of Seasons of Waiting

"Envy is a subtle and vicious sin, which usually aims at those closest to us—family, friends, neighbors, fellow workers, and church members. It is embarrassing to divulge, and thus it gnaws at our souls, filling us with rage at others' success or with satisfaction at their misfortune. Arguably, envy is the original sin that burned within Satan and has beset mankind throughout history. We see it in Scripture—from Cain to Saul to Joseph's brothers and to the Jews of Jesus's day who nailed him to a cross. In short, envy makes us unwitting accomplices of the Devil and it can destroy our souls. In her debut book, Tilly Dillehay helps us understand this sin in its various manifestations. With candid admission of her own struggle, penetrating insight into the human heart, and full confidence in God's mercy, Dillehay offers hope to those ensnared by this 'green-eyed monster.' She helps us see 'borrowed glories' for what they are and fixes our gaze on the glories that await those 'hidden with Christ in God' (Colossians 3:3). Read this book and serve your soul!"
Ivan Mesa, editor, The Gospel Coalition

"Tilly Dillehay has written a book which is both convicting and encouraging. Convicting because it names a sin which we all share but excuse as less important than others. Encouraging because it points the reader to the One who is owed all glory.

"This book is full of Scripture as we face God's view of the sin of envy. We are shown the gospel that redeems us from all our sins. Christ is exalted and glorified. Women of all ages will benefit from reading Tilly Dillehay's book."
Caroline Newheiser, MA, certified counselor, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors; blogger, Biblical Counseling Coalition

"God knew I needed this book at the time I read it. Tilly helped me pinpoint some of my own relational troubles as a bout with envy, and her words also helped me know how to respond to this realization in biblically appropriate ways. Seeing Green is an excellent resource that I highly recommend."
Christine Hoover, author of Messy Beautiful Friendship and Searching for Spring, host of “By Faith” podcast

"Seeing Green was a particularly satisfying book for me. Bold and frank in equal measure, it addresses one of the more grievous sins of our generation—envy—a rough granite sin that our therapeutic culture has trained us to shine up like it was virtuous marble or something. Dillehay writes intelligently, gracefully, biblically."
Douglas Wilson, senior fellow of theology, New Saint Andrews College; pastor, Christ Church, Moscow, Idaho; author of Wordsmithy and Reforming Marriage

"Envy is like the kudzoo of petty sin. Many Christian women are struggling to find the joy in their life, not realizing that invasive envy is choking it out. Tilly does a lovely job coming alongside women to find the roots of these entangling struggles and tear them up. Her own joy in freedom from this sin is contagious, and you will find yourself challenged, encouraged, and wondering what needs to be uncovered in your life."
Rachel Jankovic, author of Loving the Little Years and You Who; cohost of "What Have You" podcast

"This book is spiritually insightful, theologically well grounded (loved the interplay of dust and glory), engagingly written, and helpfully disarming. I anticipate it will seriously edify many."
Bobby Jamieson, associate pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.; author of Sound Doctrine and Going Public
