The Gift of Anger – learning from 12 Biblestories

Anger can be difficult sometimes. But anger can also give you the energy to fight injustice. Is anger positive or negative? This book wants to help you to be angry in a positive way, so that stressful situations can be handled in a constructive way. And so that the situation changes for the better through good listening, telling the truth in love and, where necessary, taking steps of forgiveness.

Have you ever opened the Bible and looked for the topic of anger, either personally or in a discussion group? A lot can be learnt about interacting honestly and respectfully, even when situations are difficult and irritating. In this book you will learn from individuals like Cain, Jonah, Paul and Barnabas, Jacob and Esau, and, in particular, Jesus.

The 12 Bible stories and the 12 Key Concepts in this book provide a wide range of Biblical insights and practical tips. Questions for individual or group use help apply the material to daily life.
