"Anger plays an essential part in the faith life of all Christians. In the face of a Christianity filled with cliches of goodness and light, Holy Anger invites the reader to consider anger as something that can transform a potentially devastating energy into a force that brings about rebirth and reawakening. Anger is not something to be avoided; it is a gift from God."

"Lytta Basset looks at a number of instances of anger in the Bible. She studies Jacob's struggle with the angel, Job's reaction to his many tribulations, and Jesus' reminder that he did not come to bring only peace. Basset shows how anger and violence form part of our complex understanding and experience of God, She presents and interprets key moments of "holy" anger in the Bible, and shows how this anger can result in human goodness and growth."

The topic of this book is one of those greatly neglected areas that has cried out for serious analysis and exploration. We read today of rage in many manifestations- road rage, computer rage- but anger has its role in structuring faith. This is what this book is about and in the process it is also a brilliant exposition of anger in the Biblical accounts of Jacob, Job and Jesus. The Old Testament is in many ways an account of a running battle between God and man. 'Why do the wicked prosper' ' Ho, Assyria, the rod of my anger`. Job shakes his fist at heaven and complains angrily at God. 'It is certain',writes the author ` that anger with all its different shades is an element in a living faith. experience of anger constantly renewed structures our lives as believers as we become adult. The anger of Jesus encouragers us to welcome our own anger'. The God of this book is not an oxygen tank nor a funk hole. he is a Biblical God of astonishing pertinence to our lives today. Basset has a sovereign command of the biblical material, of early Christian commentaries on it and on Jewish interpretations of it. Here is a new vision of the relationship and the role that anger plays in it.
