Product Description

In this, his latest work, respected scholar Andrew Lester discusses and incorporates the newest behavioral research models, contemporary biblical and theological scholarship, constructivist philosophy, and narrative theory into a comprehensive pastoral theology of anger.

Divided into five parts, The Angry Christian explores the problem with anger, then turns to understanding anger, developing a pastoral theology of anger, discussing the ethics of anger, and finally suggesting strategies for counseling angry people.

In revisiting through the lens of theological anthropology the very subject that brought him to the forefront of scholarship in pastoral care, Lester presents engaging new material and innovative new methods of interventions for dealing with this often-confusing human emotion. Chapters include: "Anger: One of the Seven Deadly Sins?" "The Recovery of Emotion," "The Anger of God and Jesus," "A Pastoral Theology of Anger," "Handling Anger Creatively," and "Pastoral Care Interventions and Strategies."
