How many times today have you been irritated? Frustrated? While you might not think about it often, if you look closely at any day most everyone can find anger in their actions and attitudes. Something spills or goes missing, we get stuck in traffic or someone cuts us off on the road, or we feel like the people we live and work with are only making our lives more difficult. And while no one wants to get angry, what happens when our irritations and frustrations rise yet again?

Anger is so common—yet it also hurts. It not only leaves a mark on us, but it also leaves a marks on others. The wounds we inflict on ourselves and others because of anger—loss of intimacy, trust, security, and enjoyment in our closest relationships—give us compelling reasons to look closely at our anger and think carefully about how to grow in peace and patience.

But if you, like many others, have just gotten irritated for the umpteenth time today, you might wonder if change is possible. Can anyone truly find peace? The answer is yes, but you will need a plan. Biblical counselor and psychologist Ed Welch invites readers to take a fifty-day journey that unpacks anger while encouraging and teaching readers to respond with patience to life’s difficulties. Readers will also be introduced to Jesus, the key to any plan for change. Known as the Prince of Peace, he is the only one who can empower his people to grow in patience, peace, and wholeness. 

Provides short, daily meditations that encourage readers to look carefully at how their anger affects them and others. The fifty-day reading plan gives ample time for readers to unpack the underlying causes of irritation and frustration and develop a Spirit-led plan for growth. Offers encouragement and helps readers to develop the skills to deal with the universal problem of anger and respond with more patience to life’s difficulties Christ-centered teachings give readers hope that they can change not based on their own efforts, but through the work of Jesus and his indwelling Spirit.

A useful tool for pastors, counselors, and lay helpers who are working with people who struggle with a short fuse.

The title says it all. A Small Book About A Big Problem,  is a very tiny book. It is quite small. I like the message this little book shares.  The book includes 50 short little chapters. They all deal with subjects such as anger, patience, and ultimate peace. The book describes actions that all of us may do across the course of our days that may be anger, jealousy,  that we don't realize. 

The book is designed to be read across 50 days. Each reading includes a question to reflect on. The book consists of meditations as well as bible verses that you can reflect on. 

A Small Book About A Big Problem is one of the best little recourses on anger that I have come across. This is a great quick resource that could be used in counseling and in daily life. This would be a perfect for any person that struggles with anger, it would be a useful resource for accountability. I really hope you will check it out.
