EQ is emotional intelligence, just like IQ is analytical intelligence. Emotional intelligence involves: emotional identification, perception and expression; emotional facilitation of thought; emotional understanding; and emotional management .

A Harvard Business School study found that up to 85% of an executive's success was due to EQ skills and only 15% to IQ.

EQ skills are needed by all pastors, missionaries and Christian workers-which is why Biblical EQ was written. They are also a tremendous help in the Christian life.

Biblical EQ seeks a biblical understanding of our emotions and is based on what the Scriptures tell us about the emotional life of Jesus Christ. It believes Christ redeemed our emotions and that we can have Christ-like emotions. Biblical EQ draws on both secular and Christian insights and uses the life and ministry of Jesus as the model. and the integrating point.

Biblical EQ takes the position that born-again believers have a huge advantage in the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit who is God and who has a plan to make us like Jesus. When Christians cooperate with God's work in their lives then amazing personal changes can occur. Biblical EQ will give you the information and the tools you need to cooperate with God in your own emotional transformation.
