Depression is a common complaint in the doctor's surgery and 1 in 5 of the population that is 20% of people will have at least one major episode in their lifetime. We are reassured here that just like our physical health we can go through good and bad emotional health. But how does the Christian deal with this? It is so easy for us to be riddled with guilt but in this book the Christian is reassured that God knows and deals with us by grace, He helps us move from guilt to grace. Written from a Biblical and medical perspective.
Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St Ebbe’s, Oxford and Director of Proclamation Trust

jhuntsman5 Stars Out Of 5A great resourceDecember 3, 2011jhuntsmanThis short little book is a great resource to those who are themselves struggling with depression or are close to someone who is. The two authors obviously write from personal experience working with individuals who have depression, so they bring a well-informed perspective to the topic. They especially focus on how a Christian should understand the suffering caused by depression. I found their approach to be biblical, balanced, practical, and sympathetic. They encourage believers to understand the medical realities of depression, but also offer advice for how to seek healing from God and supportive friends at a time when one's relationships can really suffer. They also provide short stories of Christians who have undergone depression, some of it very severe, as well as how family and friends can listen and care. An easy but informative read, I finished the book in under two hours.
