The emotion most people are wariest of is anger. Yet not expressing—or at least acknowledging—anger, we’re told, may lead to a host of illnesses, including depression. What to do? Bring it to the Lord in prayer, Punnett says. If that seems outrageous, it’s nevertheless prodigiously attested in the Bible, especially among the Psalms. Problem is, Punnett continues, contemporary Christians tend not to know that. Punnett does, and he uses this fact in his ministerial work, which has been a sideline to his career as a radio host. (He’s just abandoned that career because of aggressive tinnitus—something to be ticked at God about, indeed!) Although he helpfully tells stories of angry prayer at work, Punnett may prove most useful for most readers because of the treasury of angry prayers—his own Psalms-based examples; 16 more, mostly freer-form, by “everyday folks”; and 24 classics of the genre from Psalms—that fill more than half the book. Very fine common-language devotional literature. --Ray Olson
"Ian Punnett is one of those truly rare and special people you meet infrequently in a lifetime and deserves to be treasured. I highly recommend this incredible book to all readers." -- Judith Orloff, author of Emotional Freedom
"The warmth, humor, and wisdom that comes through in Ian Punnett's radio programs is evident on every page of this book. The "Our Father" has its charms, but I'll take Punnett's "Prayer for Those Who Are Cut Off In Traffic" any day of the week." --Mary Roach, author of Stiff and Gulp
“Ian Punnet understands the real politik of human frailty. Life is fired at us all from point blank range, we all succeed some days and fail on others. We all endure hardship and we need spiritual understanding coupled with practical tools to grow our own personal brand of faith so we can match calamity with serenity. Punnet delivers solutions, educates and enlightens, touching the heart and giving us all a keen understanding of the nature of a relationship with God. A relationship that by the way is like any other we have. I needed this book in a big way during a bad year, and it allowed me to forgive and vigorously reconnect with my own Higher Power. I love this book.” -- Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods

I recommend anyone to read this book to help them understand what prayer really is & that it can be the best time to pray.
I've no fear of god and was seeking a way to get more deep in my relationship.
I believe that this book can give you a pathway into your own innerworkings on Divine belief. If you're seeking a refresh on your relationship, without religious ties, this is a good book for that.
Ian is one of the few Christians who seems to understand what Jesus is about. I've no problem with Jesus, just the false religion very loosely based on what he taught.
