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.
