Overview

Enjoy these SAMPLE pages from Joys and Tears-

This
book presents a biblical and practical look at the emotions of Christians, building on
the concept that most contemporary Christians have misconceptions about why we have
emotions and how we should handle them. Trusting God doesn't mean being consistently
tranquil or subdued. Truth is, such a view makes life flat and two dimensional.
We often forget that emotions are a gift; to fear them or stow them away would be
to deny a huge part of what makes us human. This book explores the significance
of the gift and the benefits of living a robust life of thought, action, and feeling.
Illuminating the emotional life of Christ and his followers, Dr. Gerald Peterman
asks:

If I'm forgiven, why do I feel guilt and shame? What
about anger? What if I'm angry with God?What is the place of sadness in
the Christian life?Is love only an action?

Emotions don't
just happen to us like the virus or the flu; they are inherently part of us. Readers
will find that the discussion extends beyond "good" and "bad," as many emotions
are neutral and it is up to them to figure out how to glorify God with them.
Extended chapters on love and anger are included.
