About this title:
Did you know that spiritual, emotional, physical and relational exhaustion lead to, ANGER? And unresolved anger leads to sin. All couples deal with anger and how they respond (stuff it, spew it or study it), can make all the difference in their relationship and in their lives. In From Anger to Intimacy, Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham explore this often maligned and God-given emotion that unless dealt with can strip us of everything we love. Now couples can learn the skills to: resolve conflict, hurt and pain in a healthy way, master their internal buttons so as to overcome feelings of anger, frustration and rage, use five specific tactics to deal with anger and rage when they rear their ugly heads, walk in the freedom God intends by learning the three essentials of forgiveness and five keys to nurturing a forgiving spirit, craft the perfect apology, remove the roadblocks to forgiveness once and for all, break sexual addiction and heal after an affair, and find answers to big questions about anger and forgiveness in their marriage.
From the Back Cover:
Anger begins as frustration, hurt or fear. When you don’t deal with these deeper emotions, they intensify and fester into resentment and rage—and the affectionate intimacy you long for in your relationship is driven away. Yet everyone experiences anger at one time or another . . . so how can you cope when it surfaces and strengthen the connection between you and your spouse? Popular relationship expertDr.Gary Smalley, bestselling author of The Language of Love and The Blessing, suggests that you have three options when anger rears its head: You can stuff it, you can spew it, or you can study it. With his pastor and good friend, Ted Cunningham, Smalley peels back anger’s layers to expose the emotional core of fury and bitterness. They invite you to take an honest look at the pain that lies at the heart of anger and show you how sharing that pain leads to deep intimacy and a marriage that will go the distance. Don’t let anger undermine your most precious relationship. Instead, learn how you can build an unshakeable foundation of love, trust and confidence when you forgive.
