This book shows how Christians can be good and be angry at the same time. That's possible if we let the Holy Spirit strengthen us to get angry for the right reasons and to keep anger under control.

If we are seeking a secret that will simply eliminate anger, we're pursuing a vain hope. Anger will surely be with us until we die. It may even go with us to heaven, where the Lord may allow us to share his anger at the evils that afflict his creation. But we can learn to increase good anger and to minimize the bad. That's the Christian approach summed up by Paul when he admonished the Ephesians to "Be angry, but do not sin" (Eph 4:26). If used constructively, anger can even help us live a more Christian life.

This is not a psychology or self-help book. It presents a Bible-based strategy for caring for and disciplining a valuable emotion. It describes a method that helps us use anger successfully to overcome the obstacles strewn across the path of our Christian journey. The book contains questions for discussion, personal reflection and application which make it ideal for either individual or group use.

    A proverbial student is interested in gaining an education rather than simply pursuing a degree. Even a quick scan of Proverbs and shows how God is more interested in a student's pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom than easy courses, convenient times, grades, majors, and careers.

    Becoming proverbial students requires God remolding minds from within and is difficult because the world is squeezing students, including Christian students, into a degree mold rather than a knowledge, understanding, and wisdom mold. To begin the process, students are encouraged to be curious about ideas.

    The concepts of context, free will, determinism, and decision-making are used to get students to think beyond memorization. They are encouraged to see the fun and the importance of thinking in order to become knowledgeable, understanding, and wise. Students are shown the importance of the process for many academic disciplines, for the church, for an understanding of one's faith, and for life in general. Upon graduation, a proverbial student should understanding the distinction between a graduation and a commencement ceremony. Students are encouraged to adopt a lifelong attitude of learning, of stewardship, of dialog, and of having an examined life.

    Parents and other support groups are understandably concerned about preparing Christian students for the temptations of university life. Many books are written, and extensive advice is given, to prepare for campus living. However, the academic preparation for Christian students is often ignored or, at best, underrepresented. A quick scan of the book of Proverbs makes it clear: God intends a student to be interested in wisdom.

    Drawing from more than 35 years of experience, author Jeral Williams presents several fun ideas that can lead students into the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.

    Where is God when we are hurting or in despair? How can we respond faithfully to situations that cause us pain? Where can we find hope even when we feel hopeless? Pain, despair, and struggle are part of life, and they test our character as God's people. John Wimmer approaches these challenges to our faith realistically and thoughtfully. Although we can't always understand or control many things that happen to us, we can choose how we will respond to them. Wimmer encourages us to view difficulties as opportunities for spiritual and personal growth. Rather than diminishing faith, pain and despair can lead to greater trust in God. To endure through such times is a blessing. This inspiring book offers practical help for moving from pain and despair to the blessing of hope. Wimmer reminds readers that with hope we also have faithnot the false belief that our lives will be pain-free, but true faith that God will lead us through our struggles to deeper levels of spiritual growth and wisdom.

    Brian spent a lifetime seeking his father's approval. His father wanted him to be the best and the brightest, and Brian tried - desperately! When his father lay dying, Brian rushed to his bedside to plead one last time, "Please say you love me, please!"

    We all have a powerful need to know that someone in this world loves us and accepts us unconditionally. We especially crave our parents' blessing, and without it, we may become angry and driven, or detached and empty. We may also feel this hurtful lack between brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, or even within our religious congregation.

    Now family counselors Gary Smalley and John Trent, Ph.D., show us how we can transform our lives - even when it is no longer possible to receive our parents' blessing. They reveal the five key elements of the blessing, describe the most common home situations where a blessing has been denied (one of them may be ours), and offer practical, effective methods to heal broken hearts and families. Most important, they explain how we can be a blessing, and pass on that life-changing gift to our love ones.
