The Screwtape letters is a wonderful and quite humorous book and Walter Martin's sequel to it is just as good.

Would it be possible to take a new photo and repost it so that the right margin isn't truncated?

How ironic that a wandering mind sabotaged my initial presentation of this quote!

prayers for frustration and anger work well. Not just "get rid of it" or " how could I feel this way" or "I am such a bad person for feeling this way" but- 10% of everything- including anger, rage, frustration, envy, embarassment, bargaining, weaseling, all of it.

Some huge chunk of the Psalms read better in a whiney, angry voice. Those were usually the most effective Sunday School classes, just having the kids find angry psalms, and read them. They had thought church and God were mostly like their parents: Behave! Behave! Behave! Use your indoor voice! Finding out what a gross, scheming trickster, and rocking awesome sling-shot user- David was helped. Then pointing out that he likely wrote those whiney, self- pitying psalms- and that we still keep them in the Bible---that God wants 10% of mint seeds, and cumin seeds, and late homework prayers.....

One girl asked her father if they could stop at a bookstore to get this book. He said "We've got half a dozen of these at the house- you've got two in your room!"

Kathleen Norris, in Cloister Walk talks about the complaining hymns.
