Grandma was right. You’ve got to get the weeds by the roots, or they’ll just grow back. So too with deep-rooted anger. Moralistic efforts to be patient with your coworkers won’t cut it. Regret-riddled resolutions to stop yelling at your kids won’t last. You must rip out those angry roots.
But is uprooting sinful anger a realistic goal? Can it happen? God’s answer in the Bible is “Yes!” Whether you tend to simmer or strike out, whether you implode or explode, there is biblical help for you. Robert Jones shows us how to effect godly change in our lives in this practical Christ-centered resource.
“Far and away the best material on anger I have read, thoroughly biblical and immensely practical. Jones does a masterful job of helping us identify anger in our lives, then gives us biblical steps for uprooting it. Every Christian ought to prayerfully read this book and apply its teaching.”
—Jerry Bridges, author of The Pursuit of Holiness
“Most of us find it all too easy to use words like hurt, frustrated, and troubled to conceal the fact that we are often controlled by sinful anger. This book cuts through this disguise, exposes our bondage to anger, and marks a clear path to peace and freedom.”
—Ken Sande, President, Peacemaker Ministries
“Two things are hard to do with anger: face the fact that you have a problem with it and be hopeful as you do. This book will help you do both. Jones shows that the Bible is both shockingly honest about anger’s cause and wonderfully encouraging about its cure.”
—Paul David Tripp, author of Age of Opportunity
“From road rage to subterranean simmering, anger is a significant problem in many Christians’ lives. Jones brings counseling experience, a knowledge of his own heart, and the riches of the gospel to believers who seek to walk more worthily in the Lord. In Uprooting Anger you’ll find practical help as well as theological depth.”
—Elyse Fitzpatrick, author of Idols of the Heart
