A Brief Book Notice from Books at a Glance


Anger is arguably the most common problematic emotion we feel. It permeates our lives and hurts our most intimate relationships. Fortunately, Scripture has much to teach us about this universal problem. In this month-long devotional, counselor Robert Jones teaches you where your anger comes from, how to take it to God and deal with the underlying desires that cause it, and how to respond in Christlike ways to the situations that provoke it in you. Daily reflection questions and practical action steps show you specific godly behaviors that can replace your anger.

The good news is that God has given us the Bible—a book that has much to say about anger and how to deal with it. In this 31-day devotional, biblical counselor Robert Jones guides you through Scripture’s teaching on anger: what it is, how to overcome it, and what behaviors to put in its place. Reflection questions and practical action steps for each reading help you to apply God’s Word to your life. Try spending ten or fifteen minutes each day with this book, and see the difference it makes in:

  • calming your heart,
  • reconciling with others,
  • and growing in patience, contentment, and grace.

In the 31-Day Devotionals for Life series, biblical counselors and Bible teachers guide you through Scripture passages that speak to specific situations or struggles, helping you to apply God’s Word to your life in practical ways day after day.
