Good/Angry-David Powlison-Book Review

                                                         Good and Angry
About the book (provided by Cross Focused Reviews)...
Good and Angry, a groundbreaking new book from David Powlison, contends that anger is more than a problem to solve. Anger is our complex human response to things we perceive as wrong in a complex world, thus we must learn how to fruitfully and honestly deal with it. Powlison undertakes an in-depth exploration of the roots of anger, moral judgment, and righteous response by looking in a surprising place: God’s own anger.
Powlison reminds us that God gets angry too. He sees things in this world that aren’t right and he wants justice too. But God’s anger doesn’t devolve into manipulation or trying to control others to get his own way. Instead his anger is good and redemptive. It causes him to step into our world to make wrongs right, sending his own Son to die so that we can be reconciled. He is both our model for change and our power to change.
Good and Angry sets readers on a path toward a faithful and fruitful expression of anger, in which we return good for evil and redeem wrongs. Powlison offers practical help for people who struggle with irritation, complaining, or bitterness and gives guidance for how to respond constructively when life goes wrong. You, your family, and your friends will all be glad that you read this book.
a pen and highlighter while reading was good.  Each 

section/chapter the author points out areas or suggestions places to

 concentrate on.  Powlison provides thought provoking questions 

and suggestions to bring out get you thinking about what you are 

reading.  This was good for me.

The topic of Anger is powerful.  This is a powerful book and a 

good read for everyone.  Whether your struggling with real anger,

irritation or bitterness you'll find positive help and guidance.  This

book is filled with scripture reference and is biblically sound.

I recommend this book and give it 5 Stars.
