Overview

The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger—and ultimately forgiving the offender—will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as "a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who’s very important to you." Building on this defintion, Stanley...

1. Helps listeners identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves.

2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical.

3. Teaches listeners how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.

4. Walks listeners through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings.

With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is "the size of thing that makes them angry." He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that "righteous indignation" is a divine emotion. However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping listeners look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.

    Powerful Message

    Who knew this book would be this good? I think the most powerful thing he said is how the measure of person is based on size of the thing that will anger them. Outstanding. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," from Author R.A. Clark, which takes more of an intimate look at the power of forgiveness. Give it a chance to change your life.

    Excellent Book

    If you are looking for a book on guidance this book is very informative. It is well written based on biblical principles and references. I may read it a second time to catch what I may have missed. Either way it is a great book to turn to for reference in your daily life.

    WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL

    I HEARD DR. STANLEY ON A RADIO BROADCAST FIRST THEN DECIDED TO READ SOME OF HIS BOOKS. THERE IS NO FICTION TO HIS TEACHINGS. THEY COME STRAIGHT FROM GOD'S SOURCE...THE BIBLE. HE DOESN'T ADD OR TAKE AWAY FROM THE GOOD BOOK. VERY TRUSTWORTHY.

    I love this book

    I actually purchased this as an audio book and enjoyed it. Dr. Stanley goes into full detail regarding anger and backs it up with the Bible. This book gave me a clear understanding as to why people were angry and the various types of anger. Not all anger is bad.
