Do you easily get angry, but don’t know how to respond?  Many of us do.  This book, by David Powlison, shows us how to deal with our anger by exploring how anger begins, our judgment, how we can change, and what to do when it gets hard.  Each chapter ends with questions designed to help you understand more about yourself and how to deal with your anger.
About the Author- David Powlison, MDiv, PhD, has been a counselor over thirty years.  He has written The Biblical Counseling Movement, and many others. 
My thoughts-
I thought this book was excellent.  There are many people around the world who have a problem with anger and need to deal with it in a way that shows God.  This is the book that can begin to help them.
This book has given me a lot of information about how I should behave when I get frustrated, irritated,  and even angry.  There were many things I liked about each section and chapter.  Powlison has written sections about our experience, what is anger, how to change, and how to tackle the hard cases.  Each chapter was written with a lot of detail and about our anger, God’s anger, and how to improve ourselves.  One of the most important parts of the chapter is “Making It Your Own.”  It is where you take the chapter and answer questions dealing with it, so you know where you can take action in you life.  I appreciated these questions, because I learned more about myself.  I do wish there was a workbook or more area to work on the questions because I want to be able to learn more.  I hope too in the future that there could be a version for children.  I know that they could learn a great deal from this knowledge.  It would help them learn how to be righteously angry when they are younger.
Everyone needs to learn the best way to deal with anger.  I highly recommend this book.
