I was looking for a book to use as a guide for a spirituality group. I would rather have had stand alone chapters than a continuous story.

In his book, Why Did God Give us Emotions?, Reneau Peurifoy stresses the importance of recognizing how the individual aspects of emotions interconnect. Emotions are complex and mysterious. They can bring us to heights of ecstasy down to the rocks of despair. They can bind us together or tear us apart. They move some to perform nobles acts of courage and self-sacrifice, while in others they are the force behinds terrible acts of evil and destruction.

Peurifoy focuses on four main aspects of emotions:

* Their subjective nature
* Their physical side
* Their mental side, and
* Their spiritual side.

Why Did God Give Us Emotions? addresses topics like:

* Core Beliefs
* The Window of the Soul
* Emotions and God's Will
* How God Speaks to You (What Stops us From Hearing God?)
* Emotions That Come Out of the Blue
* Emotions That are "Taboo"
* True Emotional Healing

From the very start Peurifoy had two goals in mind:

* He wanted to look at what science has learned about emotions from a biblical perspective, and
* He wanted to do it in a way that would strengthen the reader's walk with God.

He states, "Over the last two decades, I've seen the strengths of science and psychology in helping people and making our lives more comfortable. I've also become acutely aware of the inability of science and psychology to address the true source of human misery: sin and our separation from God. I believe that God has helped me write a book that will be useful to many."

My Review:

I feel that with Reneau Peurifoy accomplished his two goals in a very concise, yet easy-to-read method for individuals to comprehend. He has many subtitles to each of his chapters that capture the nature of each of his subjects. He doesn't leave us with a `knowledge-only" book. He has recommended activities after each chapter that help you apply his principles while looking into your own emotional being, past and present, as well as God's perspective.

His book also contains "discussion questions for small group study, provided along with guidelines for managing emotions more effectively so they glorify God, rather than bring Him disgrace."

I definitely recommend this book as a good resource for anyone suffering from emotional issues, big or small. I am specifically excited that Peurifoy's book is from a Godly perspective.

Why Did God Give Us Emotions? is most definitely not an overnight read, but rather a spiritual workbook that requires effort and insight - after all, you can't expect an epiphany in the form of instant gratification, can you?

The most outstanding characteristic of this book is its clarity. The author, Reneau Puerifoy, uses an allegory of how six blind men "see" an elephant as being a completely different object, depending on which part of its body they each feel: a leg; its tail; its trunk; its ear; its side; and a tusk. From what they feel, they, in turn, perceive the elephant as a pillar; a rope; the thick branch of a tree; a big fan; a huge wall; and a spear. In short. They all get it wrong.

So, too, are we likely not to be able to understand ourselves and our own emotions if we focus on only one aspect of our being. Peurifoy considers our subjective, physical, mental and spiritual emotions, in terms of how they relate to our entire being, as well as how they relate to one another. A thoroughly God-centered work, this guide to emotional well-being guides you step-by-step through the healing process. And this is where your work comes in. Rejecting the role of the reader as passive bystander, Reneau asks of us that we unpack our emotions as we go, in the form of a journal. By doing so, he helps us to relate his sound advice, gleaned from many years as a practicing Christian marriage and family therapist specializing in anxiety disorders, to how we perceive the world (and, oh boy, can we sometimes see it in strange ways - see the analogy above!). He also provides suggestions on how to find a good church, how to develop a regular prayer life, and how to seek help when you really need it. For all the chapters, Peurifoy also gives several small group discussion questions, so that you can transform your personal encounter with his text into a small group therapeutic setting.

Packed with biblical references and checklists, Why Did God Give Us Emotions? stimulates us to grow, not only inwardly, but also in the relationships that we have with others around us. If you feel emotionally troubled and would love to undergo a spiritual facelift, why not buy a copy of Why Did God Give Us Emotions? It's the equivalent of hours of therapy (and who among us can afford to pay for other forms of face-to-face counseling these days?).
