The Heart of Anger: How the Bible Transforms Anger in Our Understanding and Experience

Steve Midgley, Christopher Ash

Paperback 2021-02-23

How should Christians understand anger, evaluate it, and respond for good?

Each person experiences anger - in their own hearts and in the words and actions of others. In this doctrinal, pastoral, and practical book, Christopher Ash and Steve Midgley explore the Bible's teaching about anger through biblical examples such as Moses, Saul, David, and the Ephesian church as well as present-day accounts. Though sometimes right and godly, anger is more often rooted in greed, lust, love of control, or pride. Only once the source of anger is recognized can the gospel of Jesus Christ - God's perfect wrath poured out on his Son for the sins of many - bring true freedom, transforming a heart of anger into a heart filled with the love of God.

Publisher Description

:How should Christians understand anger, evaluate it, and respond for good?

We all struggle with anger at times: Our plans suddenly fall through, we lose a prized possession, or our reputation is called into question. More often than not, when anger knocks at the doors of our hearts we easily allow it to take over. But what if getting to the heart of our anger also reveals the way to transform it?

Christopher Ash and Steve Midgley address this question by bringing to bear what the whole Bible has to say about sinful anger-revealing that anger is the sinful response when something we value more than God is taken away or threatened. They reflect on biblical portraits of human anger, God's righteous anger, and how only the gospel of Jesus Christ brings true freedom-transforming a heart of anger into a heart filled with the love of God.
