Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Allender ( The Wounded Heart ), professor and counselor at Colorado Christian University, and Longman ( How To Read the Psalms ), professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, have successfully combined their areas of expertise to produce an excellent piece of scholarship suitable equally for the layperson and the theologian. Using the Psalms and studying the emotions of anger, fear, envy, despair, contempt and shame, the authors lay out the thesis that "Exploring God's ways in light of the darker emotions reveals that He uses silence, abandonment, and assault to win our hearts for His glory." But this book is not to be mistaken for a fix-it manual for our darker emotions. Quite the contrary. It is instead a focusing tool for the consideration of what emotions reveal about how people deal with their relationship with God and with the pursuit of God as a "Person to be praised" rather than as some subordinate "Servant of our healing."

From the Back Cover

Open a window into your heart. So often we find ourselves caught between extremes. Either we feel too much or not at all. We tend to ignore our feelings or fight them off as if they were an enemy. But all emotion, whether positive or negative, can give us a glimpse of the true nature of God. We want to control our negative emotions and dark desires. God wants us to recognize them as the cry of our soul to be made right with Him. Beginning with the Psalms, Dr. Dan Allender and Dr. Tremper Longman III explore what Scripture says about our darker emotions. In this groundbreaking work they reveal that often our attempts to control our emotions, far from an attempt to be Christlike, are really a form of rebellion against God or an attempt to flee from him. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The soul is said to be the place where human emotions reside. It is the place that reacts or responds to the vertical or horizontal affects of God and society. The emotion is also said to be the link that connects the inner world with the outer world. But if the emotional make up is so active and influenced by God and man how can we as christians learn the language of the soul and communicate that language in a society that shuns reliance on emotion? Well, all these questions and more are answered in this ground breaking book. Discover how God invites His children to be respectfully honest with how they feel. Learn how to deal with the Emotional Struggles of life that seem contrary to "good christian ethics" from God's OWN Word, the Psalms. These writings in the Bible amplify the battle man faces with anger, pain, plea for justice, shame, envy and how they discoverd the goodnes of God in a "strange land". This book is for anyone wishing to face what they feel and gain a fresh perspective into the CRY OF THE SOUL.

This is on of those "beginning of the rest of your life" books. Before you read this book you have to ask yourself
1) Will I obey the Bible if it requires me to leave my comfort zone?
2) How close do I want to get with God?
This is a book about really dealing with God in all of life. Here's why it's a cruical book: there are more palms of complaint (lament/argument) than any other type of Psalm. The Hebrew title to the book of Psalm is "Book of Public Praises." But this is not what WE call worship! In the midst of all the talk about what it means to worship God, you never hear the honest and biblical perspective that Allender and Longman present. God knows your heart, why won't you engage with him the way the Psalmist did- the way God directs us to?! This is not a book about corporate worship per se, this book is broader. It's about life in relationship with God (I think that's still worship). Tired of being numb? Grow up or reside in a church that just doesn't seem completely real? Not able to be continue pretending you are "just great." Want to have a real relationship with God. Read the book!

It is not where Allendar and Longman actually went with this work, but where they COULD have gone that kept me from recommending this work MORE highly. Allendar and Longman could have used this work (and maybe another edition will accomplish this???) to help the hundreds of thousands (upon millions...?) of Christians in the U.S. in churches where emotions are either held at bay and suppressed as evil or they are allowed to run rampant in chaotic displays of extreme behavior. Other than that this was a very useful book that helped us see the redemptive use of our emotions in the process of our individual sanctifications. For example, shame can be a destructive thing if left unchecked, but if we allow it to drive us toward Christ and His redemptive power through the Holy Spirit, to God the Father, then we can be set free from our own personal prisons of shame. I highly recommend all of Allendar & Longman's works.
