"Roberts has provided us with something urgently needed: critical thinking about the complex matter of the emotions. He brings together insights from philosophy, psychology, and literature that complement the needed theological analysis of the place of emotion in human — and thus Christian — experience. This work provides invaluable insight and guidance for church leaders, including preachers and those who direct worship, parents, educators, and all who are concerned with human formation."

In the bible Christians are commanded to exercise certain emotions: Joy, Gratitude, Hope, Peace, Compassion, and Contrition. since Christians are commanded to develop them, then it follows that something can be done about it - in fact they are seen as virtues. Part 3 of the book explains each one of these emotions very well and how to approach them in the Christian life.
Roberts also does a good job of distinguishing emotions from moods and feelings.
Part 2 of the book deals with the Human need for God and secular objections to it. It also has a section on Humility which I found quite enlightening - the popular view of Humility is quite wrong from a Christian perspective.
The book is positioned for leaders teaches, counselors and such. While the book is a 'deep dive' into emotions, so it takes some pondering to work through, it is certainly more accessible than say Dallas Willard's Renovation of the Heart.
So if you are looking for a book on emotions - you can't go wrong with this one!!!
This book is very good and very edifying. I highly recommend it for Christians interested in the emotions, and even for devotional reading.
