Charles Stanley’s book Emotions offers a solid mixture of biblical truth and practical ideas in dealing with damaged emotions. Stanley maintains that emotions are beautiful, God-given gifts, but that the sinful nature of humanity has caused serious challenges with these gifts. The Atlanta, Ga., pastor discusses four specific emotions: rejection, bitterness, guilt, and despair. He points readers to specific lies the devil throws at people and offers Scripture passages to combat the lies. The book is an easy read, filled with encouragement and challenge. Stanley believes people can overcome their damaged emotions; he suggests that it takes personal effort, trusting God, and walking in God’s truth. He also lists 50 positive, Scriptural facts on how God sees believers. (Howard Books)
