Item description for The Angry Christian: A Theology for Care and Counseling by Lester...

The Christian tradition has long held that anger is sinful and to be avoided, but respected scholar Andrew Lester argues that the capacity or anger is one of God's good gifts. Here, Lester incorporates the newest behavioral research models, biblical and theological scholarship, constructivist philosophy, and narrative theory into a pastoral theology of anger. Comprehensive and critically important, The Angry Christian will be of help to Christian caregivers and counselors, to clergy, and to all individuals looking to understand the experience of anger.

Publishers Description

In this 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. 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Angry Christian?

Scholarly, Personal and Valuable Work in Anger  Jan 19, 2006
Dr. Lester's sharing of his own personal stories causes his work to speak to the real issues anger brings to daily living. He begins by asserting everyone experiences anger, but our culture teaches us to ignore it or bury it. He leaves no stone unturned in covering the topic. Though the last three chapters have some wonderful suggestions about how to deal with anger in a constructive, meaningful way, the work he presents from history, science and theology is very insightful and paints a detailed picture of our anger response and the meaning we assign to it. He writes making use of the narrative perspective.

I came to the conclusion we have done with anger what the Victorians did with sex, we don't acknowledge it and we don't talk about it. If we do talk about anger, it is always in a negative, judgmental way. Even though he writes from a Christian perspective, what the reader will learn is of value regardless of their spiritual perspective. It's a great read and affirms the value of anger in the human condition.
