Publisher's Description

Many Christians struggle with the dark shadows depression can cast over our lives. Too often, our depression is compounded by a sense of personal shame or guilt. Light in the Darkness shows us how, rather than a sickness or a sin, depression is actually a signal, warning us of emotional damage that needs repair. Here, readers will find a blueprint for restoring emotional health and rekindling the hope of faith that is both biblically and psychologically sound.

    U.S. News & World Report calls depression "the world's No. 2 killer." Nearly 19 million Americans struggle with the symptoms and effects of depression in any given year. Millions of Christians are included in that number. Sadly, the view that depression is somehow a sign of one's lack of faith and spirituality leaves depressed believers with unconquerable feelings of guilt, failure, and isolation from the rest of the faith community.

    More than 5 million Christians currently long to understand why they struggle with depression--and how that experience meshes with their faith. They are searching for a purpose in their suffering--a purpose, thank God, that does exist.

    Other books guide readers to the quickest cure through psychology or medicine or theology. This book integrates a sound theology with a professional assessment of the psychological dynamics of depression, giving readers a foundation to find hope and purpose in the midst of their experience of depression.

    False views of depression within the Church can leave Christians who suffer from depression with no idea how to integrate their experience with their faith. They struggle with guilt over their depression, and many believe it is somehow God's punishment for their sins or the inadequacies of their spiritual lives. This book exposes the misconceptions that distort Christians' views of their experiences with depressive symptoms.

    This book shows readers there can be a positive usefulness for depression in the wider perspective of the divine plan. It establishes a fundamental framework for understanding why people of faith can find themselves in the slough of depression and yet know that, first, there is a way out, and second, God can guide us through the experience in a way that is as life-changing as it is fulfilling of his heart's desire for us.

    Throughout history, God has called men and women prone to depression to do great things for the kingdom. He continues to do so today, allowing his followers to experience his compassion with new understanding and be strengthened in faith through the experience of depression.

    Unlike any other work, this book:

    * focuses on the experience of depression, not urging rushed treatment

    * discusses the positive life-changing results of depression when faith is integrated with treatment

    * explains the power of depression to strengthen faith

    * encourages readers to seek God's purpose for depression in his divine plan

    * combats religious misconceptions about depression

    * places symptoms, causes, and effects of depression within a context of systematic theology

    Through this book, readers will:

    * learn to see depression not as an illness to be cured but as an opportunity for positive change and development of a stronger faith in God

    * find practical answers to dealing with depression as a believer

    * discover freedom from guilt by understanding the Lord's purpose in depression

    * experience God's compassion with a new understanding

    * gain a new appreciation for the exquisite design of God's plan for living

    * be challenged to re calibrate their view of God and the way he works

    Highly recommended!
