Faithful Feelings: Rethinking Emotions in the New Testament is Dr. Elliott’s first book and is based on his PhD in New Testament. If you are a pastor, counselor, or a student of the Bible, Faithful Feelings will renew your faith as you dig deeper into the truths about emotion found in the Bible. It will inspire you as you understand all God has to say about the emotions.
Jesus and Paul displayed a wide range of emotions in their lives and teaching. Thomas Aquinas, John Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, and many others have recognized the vital importance of emotion in Christian experience. However, in recent times, many preachers and theologians have relegated it to the margins. Our thinking on the relationship between reason and emotion is often confused or obscure, and this book bring clarity to what the Bible teaches.
- Replace confusion over what the Bible teaches with a clear biblical
theology of emotion
- Counsel others effectively by understanding what God has to say
about how Christians should feel
- Call people to a passionate faith when you understand the emotions
of Jesus, Paul and the passionate God of the Bible
- Renew your faith, refresh your spirit, return to Him as you feel again.
