Not entitled to get angry? Really?
a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay
angry. The idea of our own "righteous anger" is a myth. It is the
number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says,
Christians have not been taught out of it.
As it turns out, giving
up our "right" to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy,
simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things
we can do.
In Unoffendable readers will find something of
immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life with less
stress. They’ll adjust their expectations to fit human nature and
replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude.
The book offers a unique viewpoint, challenging the idea that Christians can harbor "righteous anger" or that there even is such a thing for believers.
other books exist with such a radical, provocative proposal to
consider. We have no right to anger. We are to get rid of it, period.
Completely. And it is possible to choose to be "unoffendable."
the author’s winsome, humorous, and conversational style, this book
doesn’t add another thing to do on a stressed-out person’s ever-growing
list. Better, it actually seeks to lift religious burdens from
readers’ backs and allow them to experience the joy of gratitude,
perhaps for the first time, every single day of their lives.
