Textbook Notes

PTC 303: 100%
There are many books out there on depression, but Ed Welch's biblical depth makes his perspective unusual, fresh, deep and wise. Ed has thought long and hard and biblically about the multi-layered problems of depression. You will find nothing else like it. And Ed has done more than think about a problem. He loves people who struggle with depression. They aren't cases or diagnostic categories. They are only-too-human strugglers. His sympathy and gentleness with people make his insights into people truly helpful.
David Powlison, lecturer in Practical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary

I know of no other Christian book on depression that is as compassionate, comprehensive, Christ-centered and stuff-of-life practical as this. It is a sweet grace to stare into the ugly face of darkness and have hope. Ed Welch will help you do just that.
Paul David Tripp
, lecturer in Practical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary


An all-too-rare combination of gospel understanding, biblical wisdom, personal empathy and long counseling experience shines through these pages. Here is a readable and reliable manual for all who personally experience the 'stubborn darkness' or who want to stand by others who do. What is most needed is a course of divinely prescribed anti-depressants. LIke a skilled spiritual pharmacist, Ed Welch fills that prescription for us.

Although written for people suffering from depression, this book actually will help all of us in our relationship with God and other people. I personally profited a great deal from reading it.
Jerry Bridges, author of acclaimed titles such as The Discipline of Grace, The Fruitful Life, and The Pursuit of Holiness
