This book is a true account of Pastor Bob going through depression. His life proves that no matter how hard the circumstance, one can overcome. Dealing with the death of others is what took him to the ultimate depths, where he faced death in his life. The journey downward was quick, but the road to recovery was very slow and painful. Headaches, head pain, emotional trauma, severe panic attacks and stress was constant day after day. A friend who, had been a soldier said he looked like one of the soldiers returning from war. Even to this day he must be careful to avoid stressful situations. He wants this account of his depression to be a help to those who are going through their deep valley. Chapter thirteen shows that there is hope for all, not only in this life but in the life to come. Pastor Bob's God is a great God and worthy to be praised.
