Most people believe that anger is a negative emotion from which no good can come. Many Christians think that anger should not be expressed and that such feelings are sinful. This book (now in it’s second printing – 2010) explores the emotion of anger and how anger – which is a part of the human experience – is a force God can use for His purposes. Co-authors Lynette Hoy and Ted Griffin present a fresh approach to managing anger, identifying the problem, power and process of anger (from annoyance to bitterness or rage); biblical examples of “good anger” and how faith, assertiveness, problem-solving and forgiveness impact anger and can be used by God for his purposes.
Chronic anger can be costly – physically, emotionally and relationally. Most
people can use their anger in appropriate ways in some situations, and yet
can be ineffectual or harmful in other situations. Applying principles from
the What’s Good About Anger? book and workbooks can reduce your levels of anger, and help you learn effective coping behaviors to stop escalation and to resolve conflicts. Logging anger, triggering situations and applying new skills will help you more effectively control unhealthy anger responses.
