This book was originally written to help Christian workers master the emotional stresses and strains of missionary service but is relevant to all Christians. It is written from an evangelical/charismatic perspective that takes Scripture as the basis for all its conclusions.
Biblical EQ explores the possibility of Jesus being our model for Christian emotionality and what that means for our own self-understanding, emotional healing, personal mastery and for our day to day living. Biblical EQ aims to answer questions such as:
How can I bring my emotions under control?
Did Jesus have emotions?
Are my emotions important to God?
Is it really possible to know true inner peace?
How come some Christians have a glow about them?
Some people seem so masterful, how do they do that?
Why did Jesus weep?
Where do emotions come from?
How can I express emotions wisely and well?
What's the difference between my mind and my brain?
Why is love important?
How can the Holy Spirit help me to grow emotionally?
- Can I really be "together" like Jesus was?
