NewGrowth Minibooks - Hope for the Depressed: Beyond a "Cheer-Up" TheologyISBN: 9781939946584
Depression makes so many things hard. Things you used to take for granted: a good nights sleep, having goals, responding to someone's love, looking forward to the future. Is there any hope and help for those who are struggling with depression?
Edward T. Welch insightfully describes the world of the depressed person and gives a biblical perspective on the causes of depression. Then he outlines small, practical steps that will teach you to cry out to God and depend on him in the middle of your struggle.
