When Anger Burns

A Biblical View on Handling Anger

Anger is one of our most powerful emotions. Its intensity can lead us to view anger negatively, as if it is an invasive parasite. In reality, however, anger behaves more like our body’s natural, God-given immune system. Sometimes anger flares up appropriately, to fight against whatever threatens our well-being, or the well-being of those who need protection. Other times it behaves more like a symptom signaling that something much deeper needs our careful attention.

In this booklet, counselor Tim Jackson offers help from the wisdom of the Bible so that we may discern between anger that builds up and anger that tears down. Here we gain insight into the roots of potentially destructive anger, and we learn how to feel and give a voice to the kind of anger that nurtures the life of God within us.
