What is the biblical and God-glorifying way to handle anger and stress? Anger and stress are perhaps the two most defining aspects of our world today. There are many ways of handling stress and anger: you can get increasingly angrier and more stressed out, you can resort to drugs and alcohol, you can turn violent, you can retreat into your own world and become cold and distant—or you can react God’s Way! Dr. Wayne Mack, one of the most well-known and trusted Christian counselors of our time, puts his years of experience and Bible knowledge to work for you in this book! In it, he tells you, not just how to handle anger, but the root causes of anger. By doing this, Dr. Mack helps you to better understand why your reactions to stress, and its accompanying anger, are usually the result of “not getting what we think we need.” He then goes on to explain how to restructure your thinking to make your reaction more Christ-like. If you’ve ever struggled with anger, if you’ve ever been so stressed out that you don’t know where to turn, then let this book, guided by the principles of Scripture, change your life—forever!
I took a class at church in a small group where this book was the textbook. I went in with little to no expectation. I started reading.. and found that I couldn't put the book down. I got out my bible to read the noted scriptures. I took notes, highlighted, underlined, etc.
I have since COMPLETELY changed the way I deal with any type of stress in my life. No matter how big or small, I am able to stop and think - how can I respond in a way that will glorify God? It is the MOST HELPFUL book I've EVER read.
I just ordered ALL of Wayne Mack's other books on Amazon. I can't wait to receive them and continue on my journey of spiritual growth.
