Understanding the temperaments - the different combinations of inborn traits that affect behavior - can help people understand why they do what they do, and how they can choose healthy alternatives to negative personality traits. Spirit-Controlled Temperament introduces Dr. LaHaye's classic four-fold temperament theory and helps readers identify which one best describes them. Transformed Temperaments draws on biographical studies of four important people from the Bible to demonstrate how, by the power of the Holy Spirit, readers can shape and refine each temperament type. Why You Act the Way You Do guides readers in managing fear, anger, depression, and other negative emotions according to temperament types, and presents practical tips on handling different temperaments in the workplace and in marriage.  Offering an important tool for self-discovery, Transforming Your Temperament shows readers the way to a new freedom of purpose, peace, and personal dignity.
