This book maps the biblical teaching on anger, and provides four practical questions to asses our anger and four to help resolve it.
Anger. We all experience it, some more than others. When is it righteous, and when is it not? How can we control our anger and not get caught in a maze of rage when things dont go our way? David Powlison takes a close look at anger to help us to understand what it is and why we have it. He exposes three common misconceptions that leave us powerless to overcome anger. Using the illustration of a traffic jam, he probes the assumptions and cravings of the heart behind a typical angry response. In place of the false premises and futile consequences of ungodly anger, Powlison guides us to biblical truths and outcomes that honor God and teach us how to live.
