WHAT A RADICAL DIFFERENCE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE MAKES! With this extraordinary benefit, weíre happier, more productive and successful. We love and help others more effectively. Our health likely improves as well. Without it, our emotions so often defeat us. We worry incessantly about catastrophes that never occur. We lose our temper easily. We cave in to despair over a setback, missing any silver lining. We give in to the urge to rescue someone, when weíre already overextended. We tire unnecessarily.  

The emotionally intelligent person is far less susceptible. She understands her feelings well, and handles them adeptly. He also knows how to draw many benefitsóeven from his negative emotions. In this warm and insightful book, Blaine Smith looks carefully at what emotional intelligence is, and why itís vital for the Christian. He explains how you can achieve it, offering much practical counsel, and drawing on many fascinating biblical and personal examples. He looks at issues common to everyone, and at many unique to us as believers.  

Emotional Intelligence for the Christian will help you to:

         Avoid emotional freefalls into anger, despair, anxiety
         Understand angerís pitfalls as well as its positive role
         Grow more optimistic about your future, and gain greater motivation
                  for steps of faith
         Better prepare yourself emotionally for solving problems and recognizing
                        Godís guidance
         Understand when your desires signal Godís will for you
         Appreciate your unique temperament and its benefits
         More effectively love and serve others for Christ

The goal of growing wiser emotionally is highly achievable for any of us who take it seriously. This book will give you both the inspiration and practical guidance to make it happen!
