Runaway Emotions by Jeff Schreve

Recently our pastor has started a series of messages on toxic emotions. So it is good to receive a book to review on that subject.. Schreve calls them Runaway Emotions but it amounts to the same thing It is emotions that work themselves out in actions and these actions keep us less then God meant for us to be.
            The thesis is that negative thoughts and internal feelings act as alarms to alert us to a need we have to work on.
            Have you ever had times of frustration? When things just don’t seem to go right? Shreve offers you the truth that God knows and cares and has a reason for allowing you to be where you are.
            Schreve uses stories of people from the Bible to illustrate each emotion so we will understand what that emotion looks like. He also offers some advice to cope. These emotions are common to man. So there is no problem identifying. .
            This book will be useful for general reading and should be on the bookshelf of a person who needs reinforcement and encouragement.
            This doesn’t seem to be the book you can hand to a non-believer you are trying to witness to when he asks you how to handle emotions. This seems to be written for a person who believes there is a God and that He is involved in a persons life..
            I am a book review blogger for BookSneeze. They have sent me a copy of this book free to be reviewed on my blog. I was not required to give a positive review. All viewpoints are those of the book reviewer and not the publisher.
