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...

1. Helps readers identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves.  

2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical. 

3. Teaches readers how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.

4. Walks readers 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 readers look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.

INTRODUCTION

Everyone experiences anger at one point or another. Dr. Charles F. Stanley examines how to respond to it correctly, deal with it effectively, and make sure that we stay in line with God’s will when contentious situations arise. In Surviving in an Angry World, Dr. Stanley explores both what it means to live with anger, and the problems it causes for the angry person as well as those around him or her. “Anger will not go out on its own,” he writes. “It doesn’t die out. Dealing with anger, and especially deep-seeded anger, requires intentionality” (p. 13).

In this book, Dr. Stanley cites biblical examples regarding anger and losing control of one’s emotions, as well as personal anecdotes that demonstrate the danger of not being able to forgive. Forgiving others is often difficult, but it is something that everyone must learn how to live a healthy, productive life. Dr. Stanley teaches the reader how to practice forgiveness and how to find personal peace.
