In "God Knows" We Get Angry, author Priscilla Herbison examines anger as a misunderstood emotion. Through stories and exercises, she illustrates how many of us have been taught that anger is the beginning of a continuum that escalates into hostility, rage and hatred. This book treats anger as a live energy, a gift for our self-protection and survival, for our dignity and empowerment to say what we stand for and what we stand against. "God Knows" We Get Angry distinguishes anger from hostility, rage and hatred that results from repression of anger. The energy of anger not only protects us, but can move us to intimacy and ultimately to the freedom of forgiveness, which we reach by experiencing anger and properly channeling it. In "God Knows" We Get Angry, forgiveness is a gift that you give to yourself to free yourself from the shackles of past memories of hurt, rejection, self condemnation and shame.
