Series Young Adults

Does anger sometimes get the best of you? Are there days when you feel mad at the world?

Anger is a common human emotion, yet it often leaves us squirming with discomfort and worrying that we're not spiritual enough.

In Anger: Minding Your Passion, you'll find a collection of writings that explore the constructive use of this powerful emotion. Sometimes we have every right to get good and mad. It's what we do with our anger that matters.

As you read and ponder thoughts from such noted authors as Frederick Buechner, Sue Monk Kidd, Madeleine L'Engle, and Thich Nhat Hanh, you'll find validation for your feelings, as well as suggestions for handling anger. You'll discover that you can cope with anger while still believing in and having a relationship with God.

“Yet anger needs not only to be recognized and allowed; like the grief, it eventually needs to be transformed into an energy that serves compassion.” Sue Monk Kidd

“We Christians are taught to be suspicious of anger, and many of us have felt that anger has no place within forgiveness. But anger serves as a warning signal that we sense a threat to something of value to us....” Flora Slosson Wuellner
