    1. Chad Warner says:

      This is a biblically based approach to solving a child s behavior problems The premise is that behavior issues are generally rooted in an anger problem This book explains how to change your parenting style to prevent and cure your child s anger problem This usually involves dealing with your own anger problem It s written by a Christian counselor and instructor.Some techniques and examples seem unrealistic I can t imagine them working for my child The author mentions a few times that others have [...]

      This book is an excellent introduction to two things Christian counseling Biblical parentingIn The Heart of Anger, Lou Priolo does an outstanding job laying out practical, foundational ways to train children up in the nurture and admonition of The LORD, using Scripture and Biblical discipline and not psychobabble and medications He puts a heavy focus on teaching children how to think about their own sinful hearts and the situations of life Biblically, and oftentimes ends up helping parents to do [...]

    3. Go2therock says:

      I was told that this was something like Love and Logic, only with scriptural references I confess, I am one of the few adoptive parents who has not read L and L, but have heard it referenced often So the addition of scripture made this the easy choice for me The instructions put forth in Heart of Anger do require some concentrated effort, but I have no doubt that they will reap the rewards you are looking for for both your child and yourself While reading, I already began putting into practice s [...]

    4. Thomas Berber says:

      I am always skeptical of Christian lifestyle, self help, pop psychology but this book is not of that type, but convinces by using sound exegesis of the biblical texts and practical applications thereof The first thing that went through my mind reading was that i need to be trained like this before i can ever apply it to my children There remains the great temptation to say, this is too complicated and time consuming but as Lou Priolo also says to not provoke your children to anger, but to bring [...]

    5. Carolyn says:

      What I love most about this book is that you can read it from both the vantage point of the child or the parent And switch back and forth depending on the concept presented You can immediately place yourself in your childhood home growing up as well as your home now with your own kids with YOU as the parent This is a must have eye opening book for all parents If you own only three parenting books, let this be one of them Highly recommend It has the potential to heal old wounds as well as change [...]

    6. Betsy says:

      I really appreciate Priolo s insight into this issue I think some of the vignettes conversations recorded are a little stilted sounding, but I think his diagnosis of the causes of anger both in ourselves and in our children are right on target I especially appreciated the chapters on manipulation disrespect This book was convicting for me as a parent, showing me areas in my own life that need examination I feel like I need to reread it It s definitely not a book to be picked up only if you have [...]

    7. Ryan says:

      What a practical, helpful book This is the sort of book I ll be returning to frequently as a resources The biblical approach focusing on the heart and the worksheets in the appendix make this an easy book to recommend I d give it 5 stars, but the author s tendency to write in lists made this just less than a 5 star book This would be very worthwhile for anyone dealing with anger in their children or themselves.

    8. Cherie says:

      This book is not just about anger it is a book on parenting and teaches how to create a Christ centered, rather than child centered, home It not only tells you what you should do and why but gives you practical application in which you can apply the concepts you learn This book also has a workbook that can be used as part of a small group setting Great book

    9. Anita says:

      Even though this book seems like it would only address anger, it actually can help parents and teachers deal biblically with several issues of the heart And, as with most heart issues books, this one would not have to only deal with children either.

    10. Steve says:

      Full of good stuff.

    11. Jeff says:

      very helpful for parents in particular to understand the root of anger in their children and how to combat it.

    12. Peggy Johnson says:

      I have gleaned helpful tools to minister to angry teens and their parents from this excellent book.

    13. Andrea says:

      I thought this book had some very helpful concepts Its focus is on teaching children to evaluate their sinful anger whether inward or outward manifestations using biblical terminology and determine employ biblical alternatives It also helps kids determine the circumstances that led up to the anger and acknowledge describe their actions in dealing with it The author uses his experience as a parent and a counselor to give ideas, outline biblical instruction and provide scenarios where this process [...]

    14. Nannette Serra says:

      I had to rate this at only a 3 star because,after all, I have children BTW According to the cover of the book I have, it is foreword is by John McArthur,Jr Jay E Adams wrote the preface and you may recognize him as the father of nouthetic counseling My counseling professor was not the only one who had difficulties with Jay Adams.rapidnet jbeard bdm P

    15. Camille K. says:

      This book is typical Nouthetic or biblical counseling on anger It is very much like Priolo s other lectures on parenting God s way or whatever John MacArthur, David Powlison, and Jay Adams all endorse it There s nothing new here that you can t find regurgitated in any number of Nouthetic books from Tedd Tripp to Gary Ezzo to John MacArthur.

    16. David says:

      Many problems I see as a counselor and a middle school elementary school bus driver are often anger problems Can t tell you how often I hear the words, He she makes me so angry 21st century philosophy offers no help Priolo s book, The Heart of Anger offers real help for people who will take it seriously and respond accordingly.

    17. Rob says:

      This book had some nuggets of goodness in it that I really appreciated, however there is a large portion of the book that I feel lacks value Some of the scenarios feel contrived and stretched to fit the author s agenda Further, I think it is in large degree, an over complication of a simple problem Almost all anger is driven by selfishness and needs to be dealt with as such.

    18. Cynthia says:

      A book on nouthetic counseling is always refreshing Most interactions among people are not on a biblical plane The chapter on not answering a fool in his folly is especially helpful As sinners saved by grace, foolishness still creeps into our conversations We should be ready to help each other get our thinking in line with the Word of God.

    19. Julie says:

      Some good nuggets, but felt much of it was repetitive each of the journals seemed simliar glad to have read it though, and will remember it if needed at some point.

    20. Jason says:

    22. Jen says:

      absolutely wonderfuln t expect to get away with thinking this book is just to deal with the anger of children, adults alike will benefit.

    23. Jennifer says:

      Excellent book for any parent or person with an anger problem Passive aggressive anger is so prevalent among adults, and this book addresses that as well as overt anger A must read.

    29. Kristie says:

      I think this was a worthwhile book to read, but difficult to put into practice unless you really memorize scripture.
