Product Description

Everyone experiences anger, but few of us handle it in a Christ-centered way or know how to help others biblically. We need something better than our own moral efforts and resolutions if we really want to rid our hearts of deep-rooted anger. In this biblically-based, practical guide to anger management, Robert D. Jones focuses on changing the underlying motivations and beliefs of the heart that drive angry behavior. By uprooting these heart problems, readers will learn to handle their anger and see the fruit of thorough and lasting change. Ideal for either personal or group study, this book includes discussion and application questions in each chapter.

Author Bio

Robert D. Jones is pastor of Grace Fellowship Church in Hurricane, West Virginia. He is assistant professor of biblical counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and the author of the Resources for Changing Lives booklets Forgiveness, Angry at God?, and Bad Memories.


Uprooting Anger by Robert D. Jones is an absolute treasure, thoroughly biblical, extremely practical, and well written. Jones tackles a problem—sin—with which every believer must deal and, rather than offer some psychological mumble-jumble, takes the reader directly to the Word of God. The issue of anger is framed and handled as the Holy Spirit intended. As a result, the reader is given biblical instruction and hope.
Uprooting Anger would be helpful for any individual struggling with anger, and who does not at times? It is also highly valuable for use in counseling and as a Bible study. I intend to make use of this volume in all three ways.
I would offer two caveats of a minor nature. First, used as a counseling tool it would take some guidance by the counselor. Just handing this book to most Christians might result in overload. Breaking it down into bite-sized portions will be needed in most cases. Secondly, I would have appreciated a little more insight into dealing with instances in which a person has harmed others unintentionally. For example, an accident in which an individual’s negligence takes the life of a small child. Jones addresses this to an extent in Chapter 8, “Anger Against Yourself,” but I could have used more.
This is a book that will be used in my life and ministry for years to come. “Appendix A,” which offers a number of worksheet assignments, will become a regular staple in my counseling on anger. – Gary Gilley, Christian Book Previews.com

Editorial Reviews

Far and away the best material on anger I have read, thoroughly biblical and immensely practical. Jones does a masterful job of helping us identify anger in our lives, then gives us biblical steps for uprooting it. Every Christian ought to prayerfully read this book and apply its teaching.
Most of us find it all too easy to use words like hurt, frustrated, and troubled to conceal the fact that we are often controlled by sinful anger. This book cuts through this disguise, exposes our bondage to anger, and marks a clear path to peace and freedom.
Two things are hard to do with anger: face the fact that you have a problem with it and be hopeful as you do. This book will help you do both. Jones shows that the Bible is both shockingly honest about anger’s cause and wonderfully encouraging about its cure.
From road rage to subterranean simmering, anger is a significant problem in many Christians’ lives. Jones brings counseling experience, a knowledge of his own heart, and the riches of the gospel to believers who seek to walk more worthily in the Lord. In Uprooting Anger you’ll find practical help as well as theological depth.
Scriptural, practical, and comprehensive. Jones correctly identifies the root cause of anger as the human heart, and shows that its cure is the grace of God. This book is excellently written, wonderfully illustrated, and helpfully documented.

    This was a very convicting book. Mr. Jones does an excellent job of providing a biblical definition of anger using the text of Scripture, principles of Scripture, and examples in Scripture. He also provides very practical ways of properly dealing with anger in a way that not only roots out the anger issue, but does so in a way that pleases and honors God (and this should be your primary reason for doing so). Mr. Jones provides other recommendations of extra resources with biblical foundations to assist. The Appendix has a number of homework assignments to help as well.

    This book not only showed me how to deal with the anger issues I knew I had but also revealed the other ways my anger manifested itself in my daily living

    Excellent resource and MUST read whether you are angry or not!

    I have had concealed anger for a long time. The chapter that deals with concealed anger has helped a lot already. Uplifting others who have grieved me and confessing my anger from the heart has helped tremendously. It is my prayer that others who struggle with this problem will get a hold of "Uprooting Anger."

    Excellent book. This book has opened my eyes to who I am and has completely changed my outlook on life. I have struggled with anger since I was a child, but now I know how to handle it in a Christ-like way. My life is changed forever and I like who I am now. If you struggle with anger, this is an absolute must read.

    Very well written explanation of the difference between sinful and not sinful anger. Jones does a very good job a helping the reader understand the righteousness of the anger Jesus "choose" and explains how anger is not just an emotion. I think this is now my number 1 anger management book. Worth the money.

    I have not finished the book yet but I think it is excellent! It is very well written, easy to follow and has very good information for everyone, since we all deal with anger issues regularly. I plan to recommend it to many people! These are basic life skills that can help everyone, most importantly in the light of what the scriptures teach us.
