Item description for The Cry of the Soul: Now Our Emotions Reveal Our Deepset Questions about God by Dr. Tremper Longman Dr. Dan B. Allender, III...
Overview For the person who struggles with negative emotions such as anger, fear, or jealousy, The Cry of the Soul tells us how even negative emotions can lead us closer to God.
OPEN A WINDOW INTO YOUR HEART. Our dark emotions are much more than just uncomfortable feelings we struggle to control. They are windows into our heart. They are the cry of our soul. These emotions, the ones we tend to suppress and hide, actually have something important to tell us. They can reveal, in a very graphic way, where we are in our relationship with God.
So often we find ourselves caught between extremes. Either we feel too much or not at all. We tend to ignore our feelings or fight them off as if they were an enemy. But all emotion, whether positive or negative, can give us a glimpse of the true nature of God. We want to control our negative emotions and dark desire. God wants us to recognize them as the cry of our soul to be made right with Him.
Beginning with the Psalms, Dr. Dan Allender and Dr. Tremper Longman III explore what Scripture says about our darker emotions. In this ground-breaking work they reveal that often our attempts to control our emotions, far from an attempt to be Christlike, are really a form of rebellion against God or an attempt to flee from Him.
The Cry of the Soul is a penetrating look at the condition of the human heart. You won?t find the kind of answers that alleviate struggle or help you overcome anger, jealousy, or despair in three easy steps. But you can encounter God Himself, who exults in using darkness to reveal the brilliance of His infinite goodness.
The result is joy. Not a superficial happiness that ignores the problems of our lives, but a profound emotion that can confront darkness with open eyes and confidence

Help for those who hurt. Dec 29, 2008
This is psychology that truly helps. This is not pop-psychology nor pop-Christianity. I would recommend The Healing Path by Dr. Allender as well.
The Cry Of The Soul May 3, 2008
One of the best books I have encountered on human emotions in relation to God's working in our lives and the failures of the human heart in dealing with them apart from God. Chapter 10 - Abandonment and Despair: The loss of hope, and Chapter 11 - Redemptive Despair: The restoration of hope, have been wonderful assets in helping others. PW
GREAT BOOK! Apr 7, 2008
This book has uncovered so much truth into my life and a message you will not hear from the pulpit but should. It has set me free! Incredible writing!
soul cry Apr 6, 2008
This is an excellent piece of work which cuts to the core of our emotional fight with God. It reflects the real struggle of Bible figures who over the ages have had the same struggles.
But in the end it will bring a deep sense of peace when the struggle is over. A great tool to understanding and working out our emotions.
Emotion does not equate to sin Feb 8, 2008
Dr. Dan Allender, makes a powerful case for the "righteousness" of emotion at its purist God given form. For most of my life I have been taught that emotion is wrong, from the devil, and from our brokenness. This book challenges that belief and has cleaned up emotion's reputation as it is usually drug through the mud of the sin we allow it to create in and through us. Emotion is blamed for the sin the carrier produces; much like Christ or the church is blamed for the sin Christians produce. Thank you for clearing up emotions reputation. This book has given me permission to feel. I now have a clearer picture of the Gospel of Christ!
