    There is hope for anxiety & depression." So reads the back cover of this book. HOPE. This word speaks volumes to those, like myself, who have struggled emotionally. In the search for answers, there have been many books written and read. Some books give increments of hope, others leave you feeling more hopeless because they offer next to nothing in answers.

    This book has given me reason to hope again. There are words of comfort, for those who struggle and have been "labeled" (and even scorned) by others within the Body of Faith (the church). There is a feeling of relief knowing that others have struggled with the same or similar trials and overcome them. The thing that is the most compelling to me is that each of these authors has gone through dark times. It's not "theory" to them but actual walking out of what the LORD taught them. The book speaks to the spiritual but is also very practical, a great combination. The authors' personal stories breathe life into the book...making it very readable. The book is full of wisdom and steps to help you on your journey to victory over dark times.

    I am seriously thinking of giving out copies of this book to my friends and family who struggle (and I will keep a copy for myself!) I give this book 5/5 stars!

    Walking on Water When you Feel Like You're Drowning is a collaborative effort of vulnerability, truth, openness and frankness, reliving broken seasons, dark valleys, and the ascent to healing and understood hope. The pages alternate perspectives switching from Tommy's story of sudden physical limitations and an ultimate diagnosis of clinical depression to Steve's long-term battle with crippling anxiety, overwhelming fear, and devastating loss. Each view highlighting journeys deep, authentic and heavy - yet not dissociative nor new to our fallen humanity's constant struggle.

    I chose this book to review because of my deep-rooted, personal tie to Denton Bible Church and its senior pastor Tom Nelson. I attended his church for 8 years, and I am forever changed by the voracious appetite I discovered in learning more of God's Word. I have said countless times when speaking of Tom that he could preach on one verse and captivate the congregation for hours. Humor, wit, understanding of mysteries, and a true passion for Scripture are just a few of the qualities God gifted this man with. Qualities that drew me to the doors of this church as a freshman in college, in a new town. Qualities that bade me stay for the 8 years I lived in Denton, TX. I count myself rich beyond measure for my time of learning there.

    When I opened the pages of the book, I though I would know a bit of what to expect. A timeline I remember quite well, for the events discussed by Tom took place while I was a part of the church. Yet the inclusion of Steve Leavitt and his stunning insight into the topic of life's darkest moment jarred me...glued me to the pages evermore. Steve bares his soul as unabashedly as Tommy. Leaving no corner hidden in his journey to peace and contentment in God. These men proclaim their humanity, their flaws - because boasting in their weakness is magnifying God's strength and goodness.

    These men waste no time in declaring that we are all fallen. We all experience struggles. There is nothing weak about identifying our hardships and walking the path towards healing is brave and vital.

    I will not hesitate one moment in sharing this book with those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, obsessive tendencies, or who are existing through their days confused as to what may be swirling around in their lives. There is so much we don't understand even about ourselves, that we often need the wisdom of others to help us in our discoveries, our understanding of truth, and our search for navigating the valleys to conquer the heights.

    You can relate to these voices. Trust their wisdom. For they have been there. They have come through to the other side. Steve repeats the promise that "you can get better". There are some common platitudes throughout the chapters, but the reader can still see sincerity behind the often-heard phrases. And more importantly, Steve (a licensed counselor) backs them up with biblical truth and year's of experience helping others heal.

    I do more than recommend this book. I implore you to read it. To give it to a loved one. To keep it close by. You will grow in the end. You will gain new arsenal against the darkness and lies with each turn of the page. You will finally be able to rest in the truth that you are not alone. There is hope. You are rescued from the life you wish you could change. This book shows you how to take that knowledge and own your true identity - your true freedom.

    What struck me most about this book was it's honesty. Neither of the authors hold back when discussing their own struggles with fear and anxiety, and this is was got me connected to the book right away. Hearing from other Christians who have experienced fear, anxiety, and depression and have dealt with it biblically is encouraging.

    This entire book is excellent, but the best part is the section on the Keys to Recovery. In it they offer thorough advice on living with these struggles. The advice is biblical and Christ-centered. The authors do not pull any punches, but they also avoid the "if you are truly a Christian and living a faithful life, you won't struggle with these issues" bit. In fact, they say that this mindset has been prevaelant in the church for so long that it has actually been harmful.

    The points that were brought up about perfectionism were also good. We don't always associate fear and anxiety with perfectionism, but they are actually all related.

    This book has been extremely eye-opening for me, and I recommend it to everyone dealing with these types of issues.

    Walking on Water when You Feel Like You're Drowning: Finding Hope in Life's Darkest Moments tackles depression and anxiety-two subjects that are often taboo in Christian circles. Authors Tommy Nelson and Steve Leavitt both have dealt with anxiety and depression. Nelson is a pastor and internationally-known speaker; Leavitt is a counselor. Both share professionally as well as personally about going through those dark times.

    Nelson and Leavitt have some good insight into depression and anxiety. I appreciate their candor as well as talking about a subject that most people of faith ignore (or say happens because of something sinful in your life, which may not often be the case). Sometimes the Bible quotes can be annoying-I know that when I go through some tough times, I don't want people simply quoting Scripture to me-but I also am aware that at times we need to hear those words. It's not the best book I've read, but there also aren't many Christian books that deal with anxiety and depression. It would be a helpful resource to those battling it or for their loved ones.

    I received a free copy of this book from its publisher in exchange for doing an unbiased review.
