Whether it's mild or acute, temporary or persistent, some form of depression can strike just about anybody---including Christians. Newly updated and expanded, Minirth and Meier's classic guide to dealing with this increasingly widespread condition is clinically proven, uses nontechnical language, and includes information on the most recent findings, medications, and treatments.
Whether depression is felt mildly or acutely, temporarily or persistently, it strikes just about everyone at some point. Drs. Minirth and Meier believe, however, that the emotional pain of depression can be overcome and avoided. Drawing from their professional training, counseling experience, and biblical knowledge, they explore the complex relationship between spiritual life and psychological health and then spell out basic steps for recovering from depression and maintaining a happy, fulfilling life.
