Looking away from despair towards hope can feel risky. What if God doesn't come through for you? What if you don't feel instantly better?
Instead of offering simple platitudes or unrealistic 'cure-all' formulas, Edward T. Welch addresses the complex nature of depression with compassion and insight, applying the rich treasures of the gospel and giving fresh hope to those who struggle.
"An all-too-rare combination of gospel understanding, biblical wisdom, personal empathy and long counseling experience shines through these pages. What is most needed is a course of divinely prescribed anti-depressants. Like a skilled spiritual pharmacist, Ed Welch fills that prescription for us." - Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.; theologian; author of The Christian Life
