Full Product Description

We love them. We hate them. But we certainly cannot ignore them.

Emotions can be wonderful things we love or horrible things we hate - depending on how we're feeling at the time. Sometimes we feel at their mercy and think that God would have been so much wiser to have made us without them.

But we can't get away from it: God made us to feel. Emotions thinks through the place of emotions, how we view them, handle them and glorify God with them. We see that the mature Christian life involves a fully-functioning emotional life and that emotions flow from the heart. We focus on how we can grow in good and godly emotions. We look at emotions and reading the Bible, emotions and singing praise to God, and the best way up when we are feeling down.

Emotions by Graham Beynon was published by IVP in July 2012 and is our 19142nd best seller. The ISBN for Emotions is 9781844745890.

'At last! A sane and sensitive book on emotion in the Christian life, an area where extremes prevail and balance is rare. There is something of huge value here both for touchy-feely believers and Christians who have scarcely allowed themselves to touch an emotion in years - as well as everyone in between. The section about ministry and emotion is especially valuable.'- Julian Hardyman, Senior Pastor, Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge

'In a field prone to controversy and extreme attitudes, Graham Beynon has written an admirably balanced book. Solidly founded on a biblical framework of emotions, it provides a very practical approach to the place of feelings in everyday life and, in particular, in our Christian experience. I cannot think of a better book to understand, to appreciate and to recover the value and the joy of emotions.' - Pablo Martínez, psychiatrist, Bible teacher and author

'Biblical Christianity no longer means leaving your brain at the door. Not only are logic and reason welcome, but here emotions and your heart are too. Learning from Jesus, this book explains how emotions affect how we sing, serve and even study God's Word. It challenges both quick answers and poor theology, explores stigma and encourages warmth. In today's reactive culture it brings a clear model and suggests helpful steps to take.' - Dr Rob Waller, Director of Mind and Soul, and co-author of The Worry Book

'For much of the last century psychologists and psychiatrists focused on 'bad' feelings like depression and anxiety; the language of dis-ease and what makes us 'ill'. Only recently have we begun to explore the world of positive emotion; the language of joy, gratitude, optimism and what makes us 'well'. In the same way, church teaching has often focused on the pain, conflict and dangers that lurk in human emotions but neglected the positive side of human flourishing. Graham Beynon's book, an important corrective full of practical wisdom, introduces us to the full kaleidoscopic range of emotions that lie at the very centre of what it means to be made in the image of God himself. As well as furnishing us with a balanced and accessible pastoral resource, his book is another challenge to the recovery of biblical preaching that reaches the whole person - the 'heart' as well as the 'head'.'- Glynn Harrison, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Bristol
