Publisher's Summary

Did you know that spiritual, emotional, physical and relational exhaustion lead to anger? And unresolved anger leads to sin. All couples deal with anger and how they respond (stuff it, spew it or study it), can make all the difference in their relationship and in their lives.

In From Anger to Intimacy, Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham explore this often maligned and God-given emotion that unless dealt with can strip us of everything we love.

Now couples can learn the skills to: resolve conflict, hurt and pain in a healthy way, master their internal buttons so as to overcome feelings of anger, frustration and rage, use five specific tactics to deal with anger and rage when they rear their ugly heads, walk in the freedom God intends by learning the three essentials of forgiveness and five keys to nurturing a forgiving spirit, craft the perfect apology, remove the roadblocks to forgiveness once and for all, break sexual addiction and heal after an affair, and find answers to big questions about anger and forgiveness in their marriage.

Very good

This is my first listen or read of Gary Smalley. I have followed Gary Chapman's advice for a long time and was pleasantly pleased w/Gary Smalley. I learned alot from this audiobook. I do suggest it to anyone who has trouble w/anger in their marriage. I find I get frustrated easily w/my husband and found great advice to follow here. I will definitely find more from Dr. Smalley.

Anger is an anchor

It's hard to understand and recognize anger in yourself. This book can help you let it go. Anger holds you in place stick like a ship that's dropped anchor, but releasing it is like pulling up the anchor freeing ones self to move forward in any direction. Great read. If you are a grudge holder, this book is definitely for you!

Biblical Christian approach to anger management

Any additional comments?

If you are a Biblical Christian, and think in terms of sin, atonement, think of God as Jesus Christ and want everything explained in terms of Biblical verses, then this book is for you. If you derive your core beliefs from the Bible, this book is perfect for you.If you are looking for the best anger management book out there, this is not it. In terms of giving psychological advice, that understands nuance and depth of feelings in relationships, this book won't do that. Its pretty mediocre in that regard. Some case studies and answers to questions send to the authors from people going through challenges, I did find useful though. But I'm not Christian, and I mostly listened to this book because I already spent the money and wanted to get my money's worth.

Sorry, I'm not a religious man

What disappointed you about From Anger to Intimacy?

Really disappointed about the fact that this book is based on a religious perspective and not humanistic. I've red the Bible, and it is a good book, but I don't want to attack my anger issues from a "misinterpretation" (11 min.) of what is said in the Bible.

practical, but . . .

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

At double narrator speed, it was time well spent.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Fewer anecdotes; more substance.

What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

It was even.

Could you see From Anger to Intimacy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, this is non-fiction

Any additional comments?

If you can get past the conservative and uncritical interpretation of the Bible, and the subtle anti-woman and anti-pleasure attitude of the authors, there are some practical, helpful steps to consider in overcoming anger. It's much too long because it is repetitive and illustrated with anecdotes throughout.
