What if certain emotions aren't sinful, but are actually faithful?

Most contemporary Christians misunderstand why we have emotions and how we should handle them. This book presents a biblical and practical look at emotions to guide is in the truth.

Trusting God doesn’t mean being consistently tranquil or subdued. Such a view actually makes life flat and two-dimensional. We often forget that emotions are a gift; to fear them or stow them away would be to deny a huge part of what makes us human. This book explores the gift of emotions and the benefits of living a robust life of thought, action, and feeling.

Illuminating the emotional life of Christ and his followers, Dr. Gerald Peterman asks:

  • If I’m forgiven, why do I feel guilt and shame?
  • What about anger? What if I’m angry with God?
  • What is the place of sadness in the Christian life?
  • Is love only an action?

Emotions don’t just happen to us like the virus or the flu; they are inherently part of us. Move beyond discussions of “good” and “bad” emotions and learn how to glorify God with all your emotions.

Extended chapters on love and anger are included.
