About This Book

Essays on a Sometimes Deadly Sin

Rage, resentment, envy, jealousy, and hatred? these emotions seem to dominate our times. They rule our highways, our workplaces, our homes, and our hearts.
In this provocative book of essays, writer Garret Keizer considers anger in all its baffling forms. Poignantly aware of his own temper, and of his ties to a religion that glorifies meekness, the author looks at anger as a paradox in our struggle to remain human in the midst of an infuriating world. Interweaving personal anecdotes, mythological stories, sacred texts, and Keizer's insightful observations, The Enigma of Anger will prove a welcome companion for anyone who has ever wrestled with wrath-or wished to make better use of it.

From the teachings of Buddha to the politics of a small town, from the tragedy of Willy Loman to the casual indignities of a parking lot, this book finds food for thought in as many places as anger finds us. Each chapter raises a number of questions from the most ordinary to the most profound: What should we teach our children about anger? When is anger a mark of privilege? When is anger a sign of fear? How do we deal with our anger at God or with the terrible image of God's anger at human beings?

The Enigma of Anger dares to take an unflinching look not only at anger's dangerous side but also at its important role in our ongoing quest for justice and peace.
