Summary, etc.: This work explains the importance of forgiveness in mastering the difficult emotion of anger and how to use God's help in preventing anger from destroying one's health and happiness. Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, the author focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." She argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved. In this book, she delves into the important process of forgiving, explaining its positive impact on the roots, the forms and the results of anger. Why forgive? She explains that forgiving is the only thing that can free one from the terrible turmoil that anger causes to spill over into every part of life. She understands that life will never be fair, but that is not a reason to let anger destroy our well-being and health. This is her guide to navigating that thorny territory and finding true peace.
