Product Description

Drawing from personal experiences and those of hundreds of others, Episcopal priest Barbara Cawthorne Crafton explores what it means for a person of faith to suffer from depression. All too often religious people face unique challenges when depression sets in. Some may wonder, "Where are the joys and comforts of faith and the power of prayer? How can I trust God? My depression is a sign that I have disappointed God!" Jesus Wept shows how faith can be helpful and comforting to those suffering from depression. Clearing away ill-advised teaching Crafton offers hope, and shares wisdom for dealing with the "dark night of the soul."

Editorial Reviews

Beyond all the vision quests, Scripture explanations, and spiritualexhortations, there are certain regions of human experience thatare so painful, so difficult, that even religious writers touch onthem rarely and with reluctance. This season, two brave books takea frank look at depression and forgiveness. Crafton, an Episcopalpriest and founder of The Geranium Farm (www.geraniumfarm.org),approaches the subject of depression with astonishing candor andcourage. Coming to terms with her own experience of this illness,she acknowledges depression's fundamental intractability—itsmeaninglessness and dullness. While she wisely dispels theChristian fear of suicide ("There's more than enough hell to goaround, right here on earth"), she also rejects easy solutions.Love may not be the answer, but it minimizes the worst of theillness.

    The author eloquently captures what it means to experience depression as a follower of Christ. I read the book within two days, and will likely read it again to remind myself I am not alone, and can be free of guilt.
