Publisher's Description

A Quiet Desperation is the straightforward autobiographical account of one man’s disturbing journey through disabling mental illness and into the Community of Faith.  This is a book that has provided help for many who have suffered psychiatric disorders, bringing hope without easy answers.

Author Bio

James W. Bennett’s uncompromising, challenging books for teens have earned him recognition as one of the nation’s leading—and most provocative—novelists for young adults. His fiction has been used in curricula at the middle school, high school, and community college levels.

His 1995 novel, The Squared Circle, was named the year’s finest by English Journal and the Voice of Youth Advocates.

Bennett has served as a guest author at Miami Book Fair International, as a featured speaker at the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the NCTE, and as a writer in residence (a program he established) for secondary schools in Illinois. He has also been the director for the Blooming Grove Writers Conference.

Editorial Reviews

"So many of the books I read recounting how faith solved someone’s personal problems seem to me superficial, and tenuous in their grasp of what Christianity has to say about the maladies of the spirit. The pearl of great price is a spiritual biography which recognizes that there are no quick fixes for a truly troubled soul, that healing doesn’t arrive with tomorrow’s mail. A Quiet Desperation is such a book." —Charles Merrill Smith, from the foreword  
 
"A captivating, fascinating, and down-to-earth account . . . With enthusiasm I can recommend this book both to those who experience inner despair and to all who want to understand emotional problems." —Gary R. Collins, professor of psychology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
