"Two things are hard to do with anger: face the fact that you have a problem with is and be hopeful as you do. This book will help you do both. Jones shows that the Bible is both shockingly honest about anger's cause and wonderfully encouraging about its cure." --Paul David Tripp
"Far and away the best material on anger I have read, thoroughly biblical and immensely practical. Jones does a masterful job of helping us identify anger in our lives, then gives us biblcal steps for uprooting it. Every Christian ought to prayerfully read this book and apply its teaching." --Jerry Bridges
"Most of us find it all too easy to use words like hurt, frustrated, and troubled to conceal the fact that we are often controlled by sinful anger. This book cuts through this disguise, exposes our bondage to anger, and marks a clear path to peace and freedom." --Ken Sande

Uprooting Anger would be helpful for any individual struggling with anger, and who does not at times? It is also highly valuable for use in counseling and as a Bible study. I intend to make use of this volume in all three ways.
I would offer two caveats of a minor nature. First, used as a counseling tool it would take some guidance by the counselor. Just handing this book to most Christians might result in overload. Breaking it down into bite-sized portions will be needed in most cases. Secondly, I would have appreciated a little more insight into dealing with instances in which a person has harmed others unintentionally. For example, an accident in which an individual's negligence takes the life of a small child. Jones addresses this to an extent in Chapter 8, "Anger Against Yourself," but I could have used more.
This is a book that will be used in my life and ministry for years to come. "Appendix A," which offers a number of worksheet assignments, will become a regular staple in my counseling on anger. - Gary Gilley, Christian Book Previews.com
I didn't know I was an angry man until the autumn when my 2-year-old decided to stop sleeping at night and my wife contracted mononucleosis and had to sleep a lot. At the time, I thought my surprising rages came from groggy days and sleepless nights.
But my friend Bob Jones contends that my sinful anger came from the residue of corruption in my new but still imperfect heart. In Uprooting Anger: Biblical Help For a Common Problem, Jones insightfully teaches what the Bible says about anger's true cause and gospel cure.
The greatest strength of this incisive little book is the careful, nuanced thought the author has dedicated to the biblical data, combined with field-tested practical application. Jones was a pastor for 18 years, and it shows. His extensive counseling experience provides a wealth of true-to-life illustrations.
Uprooting Anger covers a lot of ground. Not only does Jones provide a biblical definition of anger, a diagnostic for gauging the righteousness of anger and a detailed roadmap to change, but he also delves into specific problems with anger--such as anger against God and anger directed at yourself. A whole chapter is also devoted to helping others deal with their anger. This is a body-life book, practical theology at its best.
Along the way, Jones dispels some of the psychological fog that floats through our culture. For example, he claims that the Bible nowhere teaches that we should "forgive ourselves."
If I were writing the book, I might have put the last chapter first: "Why You Must Deal With Your Sinful Anger," but it also makes a fitting close. This is Jones' first time out of the harbor as an author, so his prose wobbles a bit in places and shows some unnecessary repetition, but the content is pure gold.
I recommend it for just about anyone. It's perfect for both hotheads who bite people's heads off and "bloodless-murderers" who kill others with a cold look. Why not form a "12 Angry Men" discipleship group and go through the study questions and application assignments together? I want to. Now I know where my anger comes from and what to do about it, but I still need the body of Christ to help me actually uproot it.
