    Anger is a universal human experience. For many of us, it is the single greatest challenge in every area of our lives. We have been taught that anger itself is a sin and should be avoided at all costs. However, anger is also understood to be 'nature's way' of preparing man to respond in times of danger. How then do we go about bringing this volatile emotion under the Lordship of Jesus Christ? Gary Chapman gives us the perfect tool to answer this and many other questions in The Other Side of Love.

    "Beware: Religion"
    Overall

    One thing that isn't explicit about this book until you begin listening to it is that Gary Chapman like him some religion. He's a southern gentleman with some wholesome old-timey wisdom. Sarcasm aside, his insight, when devoid of religious commentary, is pretty sound. It is hard to wholly recommend this to non-religious readers. Chapman at times condescends non-believers, questioning how or why they have morals if they don't have faith. It'd be nice for the author to stay in the real, physical world, not a world full of moral metaphor and hypocrisy. I may not know where anger began, but I'm sure an anthropological survey of it would be quite interesting and insightful. Chapman denies historical and scientific approaches to anger, and substitutes his faith and the words of long gone fictionalists.
