Written for both those who struggle with anger in their own lives and for caregivers who want to learn more about how to help angry people, Leroy Howe explores how unhealthy views of anger within the church have contributed to unhealthy ways of dealing with anger—the kind of anger that tears apart families, friendships, and people in the pews.
Integrating biblical theology and tried-and-tested principles of counseling in exploring the dynamics of anger, Howe makes effective use of vignettes or case studies to provide realistic examples of how people deal with anger in their lives. Angry People in the Pews can be read for personal growth, it can serve as the basis for short courses on anger management, and it can be used in conjunction with training people for the ministry of lay pastoral care in Christian congregations.
