Publisher's Description

Bracing and honest, Finding Quiet will validate the experiences of believers with mental illness, remind them they are not alone, and provide reassurance that they can not only survive but thrive again.

In May 2003 prominent philosopher, author, and professor J. P. Moreland awoke in the middle of the night to a severe panic attack. Though often anxious by temperament and upbringing, Moreland had never experienced such an incident before. Thus began an extended battle with debilitating anxiety and depression.

More than a decade later, Moreland continues to manage mental illness. Yet along the way he's moved from shame and despair to vulnerability and hope. In Finding Quiet Moreland comes alongside fellow sufferers with encouragement and practical, hard-won advice. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 20 percent of Americans suffer from mental illness, and people in the pews are not immune. Moreland explores the spiritual and physical aspects of mental illness, pointing readers toward sound sources of information, treatment, and recovery.

Editorial Reviews

Provides us with wise and deeply personal insights into anxiety and depression. I highly recommend Finding Quiet.
A remarkable book of wisdom and practical steps that make it an invaluable resource.
A masterpiece of scholarship, transparency, compassion, and profound guidance for all who struggle with anxiety or depression.
Finding Quiet doesn’t minimize depression or offer superficial solutions. Its well-researched ideas combine depth and practicality.
Finding Quiet will give readers genuine hope for dealing with their own anxiety and depression or helping others who face these challenges.
A deeply moving, honest, and helpful resource . . . an excellent complement to the process of Christian counseling and psychotherapy.
