A Small Book About A Big Problem is the latest book from author and Christian counselor Ed Welch. This book consists of 50 meditations on anger, patience and peace that are brief but convicting. I appreciate that Welch is willing to ask the hard questions that really uncover the way anger manifests itself through various sins. Welch really gets to the heart of anger with various passages of Scripture and encourages readers to seek wisdom instead of anger. I really appreciated the reminder that Jesus is Lord and God is judge because often when anger manifests itself in my heart, I am falsely thinking those roles belong to me. When I remember who God is and what He’s done for me in Jesus, I am less likely to respond to situations and people in anger.
Thankfully, Welch doesn’t stop with anger as this book is an all encompassing remedy of sorts. He outlines a plan for seeking forgiveness from those we have wronged out of anger on the meditation for Day 7. On Day 27, Welch offers readers 9 reminders from Scripture as to why Jesus died and what that means in the battle against anger. My favorite point from Day 27 is listed on page 100 and states, “Jesus died to cancel the legal demands against me and to secure forgiveness of sins (Colossians 2:13). I am so thankful to not be held accountable for my sins. I will work to not hold others accountable to my court of justice for sins against me.”
I highly recommend this book for Christians struggling with anger. My only regret about this book is that it was not published sooner but, I am thankful have it now and look forward to reading it again in the future.
A Small Book About A Big Problem is available now at all major booksellers.
