Book Review: Runaway Emotions by Jeff Schreve
One thing that I loved about this book right away is that he considers emotions to be like symptoms, in the same way a doctor would look at symptoms. I have long thought that about feelings myself so this book confirmed that for me.
Not only does the author talk about emotional symptoms, he provides the diagnosis and prescription for each one. Specific emotions covered are: embarrassment, loneliness, frustration, worry, anger, guilt, discontentment and depression divided up into chapters for each one.
Each emotion chapter is full of real life illustrative stories to help you remember and assimilate what you are reading. They also contain ideas of what to do specifically and what to pray to help you have control over your emotions—the prescription, if you will. Biblical principles and actual scriptures are sprinkled liberally throughout.
The overall simple answer is this: give it ALL to God. But it certainly helps to know that we are not alone and that there are specific things we can do to help faciliate the process.
If you are a Christian with emotions that you sometimes wonder about where they came from or that you feel you could use a little bit more “handling” then this book is for you.
