Why Did God Give Us Emotions takes a detailed look at the many sources of our emotional responses and the role our emotions play in our thoughts, actions, relationships with others, and our relationship with God. Peurifoy holds a master’s degree in counseling, has attended Fuller Theological Seminary, and has spent over twenty years in private practice and teaching. With the gift of making seemingly complicated issues easy to understand, Peurifoy states: “From the very start I had two goals: I wanted to look at what science has learned about emotions from a biblical perspective, and I wanted to do it in a way that would strengthen the reader’s walk with God.” Why Did God Give Us Emotions is essential reading for both those struggling with emotional issues as well as for the general reader who wants to not only understand their emotions more fully, but who is also seeking skills for managing emotions more effectively. Pastors and counselors will find both the insights offered and the recommended activities at the end of each chapter to be a valuable resource for many years to come. The group discussion questions at the end of the book also make it an ideal vehicle for small group study.
