2010 Benjamin Franklin Silver Award Winner by the Independent Book Publishing Association!Uprooting Anger is a guide to help you manage anger and work toward uprooting it and its related destructive emotions. If your fuse is short, your aggression high, your criticism sharp, your blaming personal, and your road rage unpublishable, this book is written for you. Anger has a poisonous effect on all our lives. On a personal level-in our families, work, communities, nation and world-anger permeates each of us. Anger creates distance away from people and generates a line of movement toward isolation and illness. It fractures leadership, feeds inefficiency, creates unhealthy alliances, and makes us sick.Our world is shadowed by images of anger and examples of how one person's anger can have a ripple effect across the globe. With the efficiency of a Swiss watch, technology can inundate us with a flood of cheap, easy-to-access hatred, judgment, violence and indifference. Anger may even kill us one way or another, because it's like a poison that we can either sip, gulp or (hopefully) choose to reject. In this book you will learn the following:*Understanding the nature of anger*The facts about anger*How to extinguish anger's energy*The mind, emotion and anger*Moving toward happiness*Goal setting and defining your north star*Developing a toolbox of skills for overcoming anger*The role of compassion in eliminating anger

A small book for people who cannot control their anger. Anger is widespread; it is even a major problem among professing Christians. While people express anger in different ways, controlling it is a challenge for each of us. Some feel powerless as anger rises. Others try to justify themselves. The question that must be addressed is how a sinfully angry person can become a person of grace. This mini-book provides the answer and gives us hope by directing our attention to the power of Christ to transform angry people into gracious people.

My soul is in anguish. How long, O Lord, how long?' (Psalm 6:8) Personal tragedy and heartache. Accident, illness and infirmity. Drought, earthquake, tsunami. Terrorist atrocities.

In this new edition of an excellent, widely appreciated study, Don Carson addresses the issue of evil and suffering with sensitivity, pastoral concern and biblical insight. He helps Christians prepare for the day when they have to experience a 'frowning providence', and face it with faith and hope because of an unshakable trust in the providence of God.

A Small Book about a Big Problem by biblical counselor and psychologist Edward T. Welch guides readers to look carefully at how their anger affects them and others through short, daily meditations. In a fifty-day reading plan journey, Welch unpacks anger while encouraging and teaching readers to respond with patience to life's difficulties. This biblically wise resource is a useful tool for pastors, counselors, and lay helpers who are working with people who struggle with a short fuse. In A Small Book about a Big Problem, Welch invites readers to consider how everyone can find anger in their actions and attitudes, but Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is the only one who can empower his people to grow in patience, peace, and wholeness. How many times today have you been irritated? Frustrated? Anger is so common—yet it also hurts. It not only leaves a mark on us, but it also leaves a mark on others. The wounds we inflict on ourselves and others because of anger—loss of intimacy, trust, security, and enjoyment in our closest relationships—give us compelling reasons to look closely at our anger and lift our eyes to Christ.

"This landmark book" (San Francisco Chronicle) dispels the common myths about the causes and uses of anger -- for example, that expressing anger is always good for you, that suppressing anger is always unhealthy, or that women have special "anger problems" that men do not. Dr. Carol Tavris expertly examines every facet of that fascinating emotion -- from genetics to stress to the rage for justice. Fully revised and updated, Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion now includes: * A new consideration of biological politics: Should testosterone or PMS excuse rotten tempers or aggressive actions? * The five conditions under which anger is likely to be effective -- and when it's not. * Strategies for solving specific anger problems -- chronic anger, dealing with difficult people, repeated family battles, anger after divorce or victimization, and aggressive children.

Are you tired of anger management programs that are long on theory and short on practical steps to actually manage your anger? Then this is the book you need. Drawing on newly pioneered techniques in the burgeoning field of positive psychology, the authors share a comprehensive twelve-week anger management program. They share meaningful insights, including why it’s beneficial to transfer your desire to do something to an outside source (such as the judicial system), why choosing not to harm others makes it less likely they’ll harm you, and how cultivating a spirit of optimism can eliminate angry outbursts. They also examine myths surrounding anger, such as the idea that it is not inherited, that anger always leads to aggression, the idea that people must be aggressive to get what they want, that venting anger is always desirable, and more. The program incorporates the use of multiple anger styles, diet, yoga, and music therapy, making it easy to follow and customizable based on an individual’s needs. Whether you are running a group therapy session or working to resolve your own anger, this revolutionary program will help you achieve positive and lasting results.

Good and Angry, a groundbreaking book from David Powlison, shows readers how anger is more than a problem to solve. Anger is our complex human response to what we perceive as wrong in a complex world, thus we must learn how to fruitfully and honestly deal with it. Powlison undertakes an in-depth exploration of the roots of anger, moral judgment, and righteous response by looking in a surprising place: God’s own anger. Good and Angry examines God’s desire for justice and his anger, which doesn’t devolve into manipulation. Rather, God’s anger is good and redemptive, and it causes him to step into our world to make wrongs right, sending his own Son to die so we can be reconciled. In this book full of practical and biblical help, Powlison sets readers on a path toward a faithful and fruitful expression of anger, in which we return good for evil and redeem wrongs. Powlison investigates how God is our model for change and our power for change. Good and Angry helps people who struggle with irritation, complaining, or bitterness explore how to respond constructively when life goes wrong. You, your family, and your friends will all be glad that you read this book.

How should Christians understand anger, evaluate it, and respond for good? We all struggle with anger at times: Our plans suddenly fall through, we lose a prized possession, or our reputation is called into question. More often than not, when anger knocks at the doors of our hearts we easily allow it to take over. But what if getting to the heart of our anger also reveals the way to transform it? Christopher Ash and Steve Midgley address this question by bringing to bear what the whole Bible has to say about sinful anger—revealing that anger is the sinful response when something we value more than God is taken away or threatened. They reflect on biblical portraits of human anger, God’s righteous anger, and how only the gospel of Jesus Christ brings true freedom—transforming a heart of anger into a heart filled with the love of God.

Second Timothy encourages pastors to guard, entrust, suffer for, and above all, preach the gospel. Yet it is also full of encouragement for Christians living in a hostile world. Like Timothy, we need reminding that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” We need to “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” and confident in the Scriptures, which are “given by inspiration of God.” And we need to hope in Christ’s return, when He will award the crown of righteousness “to all who have loved His appearing.” Michael G. Brown’s exposition of 2 Timothy is not only Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, and gospel focused, but also packed with pastoral and practical application.
