Uprooting Anger - Biblical Help for a Common Problem by Robert D. Jones
Grandma was right. You've got to get the weeds by the roots, or they'll just grow back. So too with deep-rooted anger. Moralistic efforts to be patient with your coworkers won't cut it. Regret-riddled resolutions to stop yelling at your kids won't last. You must rip out those angry roots.
But is uprooting sinful anger a realistic goal? Can it happen? God's answer in the Bible is "Yes!" Whether you tend to simmer or strike out, whether you implode or explode, there is biblical help for you. Robert Jones shows us how to effect godly change in our lives in this practical Christ-centered resource.
"Two things are hard to do with anger: face the fact that you have a problem with is and be hopeful as you do. This book will help you do both. Jones shows that the Bible is both shockingly honest about anger's cause and wonderfully encouraging about its cure." --Paul David Tripp
"Far and away the best material on anger I have read, thoroughly biblical and immensely practical. Jones does a masterful job of helping us identify anger in our lives, then gives us biblcal steps for uprooting it. Every Christian ought to prayerfully read this book and apply its teaching." --Jerry Bridges
"Most of us find it all too easy to use words like hurt, frustrated, and troubled to conceal the fact that we are often controlled by sinful anger. This book cuts through this disguise, exposes our bondage to anger, and marks a clear path to peace and freedom." --Ken Sande
