    “The Emotions Of God” by David Lamb is a great read for anyone who wonders if God has emotions. According to the Bible – indeed He does! Around 200 pages, some of the topics addressed include:

    – Why we don’t want to associate emotions with God.

    – Various emotions God expresses in the Bible.

    – Detailed study of the emotions God expresses in the Bible.

    – How we can express emotions for God’s glory and for the benefit of others.

    – How hate is defined and expressed in the Bible.

    – Various ways God expresses anger in the Bible.

    – Healthy and unhealthy forms of jealousy.

    – Examples of weeping in the Bible.

    – How Jesus expressed compassion in the Bible.

    After reading the book, here’s what I like:

    – Pretty easy to read and understand the author’s points and flow from chapter to chapter.

    – Covers a wide range of emotions and topics.

    – Addresses the pleasant and unpleasant emotions expressed by God in the Bible.

    – Very helpful footnotes, bibliography, and scripture index for further study.

    – Good clarification of emotions expressed, lest the reader misunderstand God or misinterpret the points made in the book.

    Very good read and will be read again. Recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
