Everyone experiences anger, but few of us handle it in a Christ-centered way or know how to help others biblically. We need something better than our own moral efforts and resolutions if we really want to rid our hearts of deep-rooted anger. In this biblically-based, practical guide to anger management, Robert D. Jones focuses on changing the underlying motivations and beliefs of the heart that drive angry behavior. By uprooting these heart problems, readers will learn to handle their anger and see the fruit of thorough and lasting change. Ideal for either personal or group study, Uprooting Anger includes discussion and application questions in each chapter.
“Two things are hard to do with anger: face the fact that you have a problem with it 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, author of Age of Opportunity
“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 biblical steps for uprooting it. Every Christian ought to prayerfully read this book and apply its teaching.” – Jerry Bridges, author of The Pursuit of Holiness
