Counselor Brad Hambrick provides a guided process to being honest with God about your pain to restore and deepen your relationship with him.

No one gets mad at God for something small. When we’re angry with God, it is because we’ve faced something immensely hard. Anger is an often-overlooked part of grieving, and as such, is an appropriate response to profoundly painful events. While we are often prone to interpret our anger about intense suffering as being at God, this book is an invitation to process these intense emotions with God as a source of comfort, who is sturdy enough to support these turbulent emotions.

Angry with God patiently walks you through the process of being honest with God (and others) about your pain. You will learn how to articulate your pain, alleviate the effects of this pain, contextualize your experience in light of the gospel, and begin to hope again.

  • Practical, accessible, and concise guidance for your struggle with deep grief that is accompanied with anger and confusion.
  • Part of the Ask the Christian Counselor series, walking readers through their deepest and most profound questions.
  • Gives readers the tools to understand their struggle with anger and grief and how the gospel brings hope and healing.

"Bigger than a minibook, smaller than regular, just the right size to give biblical answers to common counseling questions. This book, along with others in the series, is an affordable, much-needed resource for the church community—strugglers, pastors, counselors, and other helpers."
Barbara Miller Juliani, VP New Growth Press

“Anger and grief are healthy responses to profoundly painful events in our lives. Those who grieve over painful experiences need patient care, not a lecture. Brad demonstrates a unique level of compassion and concern for those who are suffering. He delivers wisdom that helps us respond to and care for those who suffer in ways that are compassionate and practically informed.”

With clarity and grace, Hambrick takes us on a journey of courage that will help us care for the broken parts of ourselves and be agents of healing and hope to the wounded along our path.”
Ruth Malhotra, Writer; advocate; ministry leader

“For years I’ve wanted a resource that can help me provide better counsel for those who are hurting and struggling with anger at God. Angry with God is the book I’ve been searching for.

    Walk with God through suffering

    Posted by Shirley Alarie on 11 05 2022

    Brad Hambrick’s Angry With God – An honest journey through suffering and betrayal is part of New Growth Press’s ‘Ask The Christian Counselor Series’. As such, Angry With God is a methodical, thoughtful, and professional walk through a dark journey of suffering and back into the light. It feels like a series of several hundred dollar counseling sessions bound into a book that the reader can explore at their own pace. Hambrick skillfully walks readers through major elements of the healing process, while cautioning that they stop and take the time they need before trying to rush themselves. The journey through pain is an individual process that everyone handles differently. Angry With God acknowledges that fact and tries to meet the reader where they are, with no promise of a magical solution. The grieving and recovery process is broken down into stages, such as articulating your pain, alleviating the effects of pain, and resolving your grief. Each section includes questions for personal reflection. The answers to these questions are where real value and healing can happen for the reader. Hambrick’s writing style sets a perfect tone for this topic. He uses stories as comparisons that give powerful insight and context to topics that are hard for people to see when they’re in the midst of hurt and anger. He adeptly helps the reader understand that being angry WITH God and not AT God allows Him to travel the difficult journey alongside them. I highly recommend this book for those who are suffering through hurt and betrayal. Who would benefit from this book: Anyone who’s struggling through hurt, suffering, or betrayal would find value in Angry With God. Be prepared to keep an open mind and heart and actually do the reflective work that’s required for healing. I read an advance copy of this book and this opinion is strictly my own.
