Anger and stress affect each of us every day—even if we aren’t feeling them ourselves, we come into contact with people who are. But their commonplace nature shouldn’t cause us to shrug them away. Anger and stress are both destroyers, and they must be controlled before they bring devastating harm.
Mack exhorts us: “You don’t have to be overcome and destroyed by ungodly anger or stress. By God’s grace, you can be an overcomer.”
Of all the resources available to us, the Bible contains the most trustworthy and helpful guidance on how to handle ungodly anger and stress. Internationally respected and experienced biblical counselor Wayne Mack shows how to turn to God’s Word to find help, explaining principles that can be adopted for lasting positive change.
Includes study questions and evaluation materials.
I have just finished Wayne Mack’s Anger & Stress Management God’s Way. It is what I have come to expect from the heart and pen of Dr. Mack: pure principles form the pages of Scripture, written in pure, pithy, prose that are pastorally and powerfully applied to people in their providential problems. Read it. Use it. Give it away to everyone who faces stress, which is to say, everyone this side of heaven! —George C Scipione, Director of the Biblical Counseling Institute, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA
I deeply appreciate the “biblical balance” that Dr. Mack conveys throughout Anger and Stress Management God’s Way. Emotions (including anger) are not seen as automatically evil, but as one aspect of our creation in the image of God—this is biblical balance. As Dr. Mack develops his perspective on each topic he erects a firm foundation of biblical truth and relates those truths relevantly to daily life—this is biblical balance. Perhaps most importantly, what Dr. Mack writes about he lives out in his relationships—this is biblical balance. —Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., Chair of the Biblical Counseling Department at Crossroads Bible College, and Author of Gospel-Centered Counseling
Anger and Stress Management God’s Way is truly what it says it is — God’s way. It is a compelling read and so very biblically practical. This book gives so much hope for true, God-honoring change. I will certainly use it in my counseling ministry, and I thank God for Wayne Mack. He is a gift to the biblical counseling world. —Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor and Author of the Excellent Wife
How refreshing to have these very common issues of anger and stress covered so thoroughly and biblically! Dr. Mack uses Scripture to cut to the core and provide real solutions often in contrast to the empty ‘solutions’ so popular in the world and the church. Dr. Mack has provided a valuable resource for both pastors and their churches. —Dr. Bruce Blakey, Pastor, Believers Fellowship, San Antonio, TX
The strength of this book is its utter dependence upon Scripture. For those who struggle with anger and those who labor to help, this volume is a must-read. Every biblical counselor should own a copy and have it at the ready. —Daniel Kirk, Pastor, Calvary Bible Church, Fort Worth, TX; Director of Calvary Biblical Counseling Ministries, an ACBC Certified Training Center
