Publisher's Summary

The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger - and ultimately forgiving the offender - will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as "a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who’s very important to you." Building on this defintion, Stanley...

  • Helps listeners identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves.
  • Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical.
  • Teaches listeners how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.
  • Walks listeners through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings.

With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is "the size of thing that makes them angry." He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that "righteous indignation" is a divine emotion.

However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping listeners look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.

NOT JUST ABOUT ANGER

This book is methodical. It teaches life principals about how to properly control your emotions and actions. Believe it or not it isn't just about anger, but also about forgiveness and reconciliation. Very inspirational as well.

Thought Provoking

Excellent. Rev. Stanley drives his point home, and it is good. Follow up with the scripture readings and it makes you understand anger a lot better.

A must read

This book could not have come to me at a better time. Charle's message regarding anger and the teachings of the Bible in that regard in today's society is perfectly timed. It opened my eyes to aspects that I have never before considered. A true blessing via audio.

Very relevant to people of all ages!

What made the experience of listening to Surviving in an Angry World the most enjoyable?

Charles Stanley has a very clear way of getting across his message. He gives illustrations and explains in clear terms his point. He speaks to all people but especially to the Christian. Instead of denying the problem and the consequences of anger, he encourages us to acknowledge it and points the way to overcoming it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes.
