5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Excellent 24 July 2000
By A Customer
At last a breath of fresh air in the stuffy views about depression in Christians.
I had lost count of the number of times I had been told to pull myself together, or worse still read my bible because that would make me feel better, this was usually at a time when I hadn't even got the energy to make myself a cup of tea. What I really needed was some practical help such as a cup of tea made for me.
Depression is a terrible condition and not always caused by outside influences. My depressions come from within, they are a result of a chemical imbalance caused by the fact that I have Manic Depression. My problem is that by the time some one has decided that I need some help, the depression is lifting of its own accord and I am becoming capable of standing on my own two feet again. Then I have a different problem, lots of people deciding I'm the cause for the month and not knowing when to back off.
This book would make good reading for all in the church who think they have a ministry in healing. Either as a good guide to handling depression or as a warning to leave well alone. I from experience would rather have no help than several clumsy helpers who blunder in and make matters worse.
The excercises at the end of the chapters were a great help and although I didn't follow even half of them, the ones I did use became good coping mechanisms for me.
I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from depression and would lend mine out except that it is falling to bits with use.

With many sources of useful information about depression this book covers it for those who want to know more and have accepted Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Written with grace this book is a blessing and not only for those who suffer from depression also for enlighting others. if you are a christian or not this book is informative, honest, clear and direct, written with grace it lightened my heart and soul for christ will help if you ask him to, He can use many things, this book is one of them. as the saying goes knowlegde is power than this book if filled with knowlegde for people to understand and thus be of help, learn about depression there is much you can do and most important of all you're not alone. I feel this book filled a need for the body of christ. don't miss it even if you're not suffering from depression you may find this book very enjoyable and information...

I found this book to be kind and compassionate. The chapters were short and the exercises doable. The explanation of depression was informative enabling the reader to have a better grasp of what was happening to them. I would recommend it to anyone going through depression whether Christian or not.
