The Heart of Anger WorkbookThe Heart of Anger Workbook
By Calvary Press

This is the companion workbook to one of the most important Christian books every published: The Heart of Anger. The book itself started a revolution in the realm of Christian counseling. Rather than dealing with simply behavior patterns, it went right to the "heart" of the matter: the inner workings of our motives and behavior in the light of God's word. It examined not just how to control anger in children, but why children are angry and, moreover, how adults at times contribute to that anger. In doing so, it also addressed the anger found in adult behavior that is passed on to children. This long-awaited workbook acts as a resource to get you to think through these issues in conjunction with the book. If you've never read the book, order a copy now! If you have the book, the workbook is a must, and makes for an excellent small group Bible study!
