Summary

Many Christians mistakenly believe that true Christians don’t get depressed, and this misconception heaps additional pain and guilt onto Christians who are suffering from mental and emotional distress. Author David P. Murray comes to the defense of depressed Christians, asserting that Christians do get depressed! He explains why and how Christians should study depression, what depression is, and the approaches caregivers, pastors, and churches can take to help those who are suffering from it. With clarity and wise biblical insight, Dr. Murray offers help and hope to those suffering from depression, the family members and friends who care for them, and pastors ministering to these wounded members of their flock.

Testimonials

Balanced! Yea!

Popular among Christians is to put psychological troubles and disorders, along with learning disabilities, in the category of "your just not believing the gospel enough." Hogwash! This book looks at how we're created, as souls and bodies (both!), and approaches depression acknowledging that both can and often do play a part in depression. Great Biblical examples herein, too!
