https://www.logos.com/product/194546/the-heart-of-anger-how-the-bible-transforms-anger-in-our-understanding-and-experience  

A well-written description of anger and its impact on the human condition. After reading this 200+ page book I don’t know whether to classify it as a theology of anger, a counseling textbook (an ancillary text), or a self-help book - and in fact it is all three. As a theology text, the book explores how anger is defined and expressed by both God and man. As a counseling textbook it will prepare the helping professional to address the causes and repercussions of unaddressed anger. As a self-help book, the book allows the reader to address their own concerns and to move forward in their life.

The book also includes a number of helpful appendices:

1. A Checklist for Our Anger - to help evaluate where and how we need help to understand the reader’s personal struggle with anger.
2. A Devotional Response to Our Anger - guiding the believer in his response before God as they address anger in their lives.
3. General Index
4. Scripture Index

These last two were not available for review in the Advanced Reader’s Copy I received.

The book is not difficult reading and is rooted in scripture. It has a place on both the pastor’s shelf and in the church library’s. I give the book 5-stars.

Thank you for pointing this out! I put it in my wishlist for later.  $14.99 is good for the content but in the future I cam get it cheaper.  Based on the outline of the en book, I have plenty of material to teach a similar series on that important topic.  The age of rage I call it.  Even Christians are too quick to get angry for no valid reason!

Floyd,

Thank you for posting this review. I hadn't heard of this book before, but I have been looking for this book for a while, if that makes sense. Thank you!
