Biblical Help with anger ????? You've got to be kidding!!!! Jul 4, 2007
In the bible, every time God gets angry, people start dying!!!!!! Even Jesus resorted to violence!!!!! You really want help with your anger try: "Anger" by:Thich Nhat Hanh. You might also like two other of his books: "Living Buddha, Living Christ" and "Coming Home: Jesus and Buddha as brothers"
Uprooting Anger Jan 5, 2007
This is a great book for those who suffer under the malady of an angry spirit or temperament. The book will, most likely, speak to those who have faith in the God of Scripture. It is a timely and valuable alternative to the "it's-not-your-fault-blame-your-dysfunctional-family" crowd of pop-psychology. For all those who need to get to the root of anger... buy this book!
A staple for counseling on anger Jul 25, 2006
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
