Spiritual Wisdom for a Happier Life by Mark W. Baker, PHd

Spiritual Wisdom for a Happier Life: How Your 8 Key Emotions Can Work for You

From : There are eight basic human emotions that all people experience--hurt, guilt/shame, anger, anxiety, sorrow, fear, happiness, and love. We might believe we make sense of our lives by thinking through our experiences, but neuroscience shows that the part of our brains that processes emotions is many times faster than the part where logic and reason hold sway. It's the way God created us, but if we do not develop wisdom for handling our feelings, we may find that our emotions continue to get the best of us.

Thankfully, the Bible is full of guidance about our emotions. With keen insight into human psychology and a gift for drawing wisdom for life from Scripture, Dr. Mark Baker shows readers how they can find comfort and promote emotional health in their lives. Anyone experiencing distress in their relationships or struggling with overwhelming emotions or even traumatic events will find clear biblical help and healing, leading them to a happier, more fulfilled life.

My take:  Although this book gives you some suggestions on knowing how each of our emotions can work for us and against us.  I feel that it it is really for each of us to decide on how we react to different things in our lives though prayer.  This is a good starting point but I think it will take some partioning God to really come to a happier life.  

I received a review copy of this book from Revell is exchange for my honest opinion.
