Publisher's Description

"Our culture is boiling with anger, and we need some relief. In his typically clear and pithy way, Bert Ghezzi sums up his strategy for defusing anger in any particular situation…" 
—Brandon Vogt, from the foreword of The Angry Christian

At a time when anger runs at a high pitch in our society, Bert Ghezzi offers biblically-based advice that shows us that the best way to handle anger is never to ignore it or try to "suppress" it. The Bible teaches us how to use anger wisely. Anger is good if we engage it to help us do the right thing and if we don't let it escalate out of hand. But it spawns evil if it gets out of control or if we use it for selfish, wrong-headed purposes. Under the power of the Holy Spirit, we can transform our anger into occasions of grace. Over time, we learn how to replace anger with behaviors like patience, endurance, and determination to do the right thing. So, anger used well can fuel our zeal becoming saints and bringing others to Christ and the church.

Some helpful tips from Bert Ghezzi

Dispelling myths about anger
• Anger is always a problem. No, anger is a gift that helps us deal with challenges.
• Anger is always sinful. No, Scripture shows us how to express anger for good purposes.
• Anger cannot change. No, under the power of the Holy Spirit, anger can become an occasion of grace.

The Biblical Approach to Anger
• Be angry (Ephesians 4:26). Express your anger. Don't suppress it.
• But do not sin. Let all rage be put away from you. (Ephesians 4:26, 31). Express is while keeping it under control to help you do good and resist evil.
• Channel your angry reactions into good behaviors such as patience, mercy, and self-control (Colossians 3:12-14; Galatians 5:22-23).

The companion book, The Angry Christian, includes Questions for Discussion and Questions for Personal Reflection and Application.

Editorial Reviews

"In this mostly filmed lecture, Catholic author and speaker Bert Ghezzi (The Angry Christian) discusses a proper understanding of biblical passages on anger, which on the surface appear to suggest that Christians should repress that emotion. In homespun, unaffected fashion, Ghezzi argues that such a simplistic interpretation is an error. Analyzing statements from both the Old and the New Testaments, he suggests that while uncontrolled rage is certainly unproductive and even sinful, anger can—if properly channeled and controlled—move one toward personal holiness and also serve as a means of assisting others to improve their behavior as well. For most of Angry and Good¸ Ghezzi speaks before a small audience, but periodic inserted clips find him and others describing how they have on occasion allowed their anger to get out of hand with negative results, or how they have employed it positively, to help children or spouses understand why their conduct is upsetting and should be adjusted. Ghezzi’s point is that simply trying to suppress anger at all costs may in fact be counterproductive, and in an era when irrational rage has become commonplace, the real goal ought to be learning to use ’righteous anger’ for constructive ends.
