In a straight-forward voice, Thelma Wells encourages readers to get to the root of their anger problems. With plenty of Biblical examples of anger (both God’s and human being’s), she offers support and advice on how to deal with various issues.
If you are looking for a self-help type book that tells you “Take Step 1, 2, and 3 and anger will be eliminated” well, this may not be the book for you. It is full of hope and encouragement, but it comes in the format of many Bible passages and personal stories, followed by questions that relate to that section. I found it a bit tedious after a few sections, as the questions were the same each time. “What caused the anger?” “How did the anger manifest?” “Do you think it was appropriate anger or not?”
I struggled to get through the book, but I did appreciate Thelma‘s sincere prayers for the reader at the end of each chapter. Her writing style is engaging and uplifting, so my difficulty was with the over-use of study questions more than the actual content.
