Emotions What are you Afraid Of? I do not only read from Reformed authors as typically they tend to ignore or undermine practical topics like these above, so its wise to read from Dispensationalists as well whom sometimes overemphasize practical topics and underemphasize more academic topics. Looks like one of the books above has a chapter on debt and David tells the story of John Wesley whom lived during a time of financial disaster and once Wesley was given a great income due to his ministry he gave most of his money away to the poor and those living in debt. What a powerful testimony! David Platt would agree! It is noted however that the authors above are not teaching a prosperity or a self-help book. They do teach suffering, but they teach one to trust God , unlike these prosperity and fulfillment/self-help authors whom teach life is all about me and me getting all my needs met and fulfilled. The books above look interesting but it may be possible that Charles Stanley is focusing too much on psychology and about one's "emotions" however I will not know until I read the book. Unlike some others in his family he does teach on sin, repentance, judgment, and Hell, so he is a solid teacher. What say you? Are there problems with these books?
