Product Description:

Depression, whether circumstantial and fleeting or persistent and long term, impacts over two-thirds of Americans at some point in their lifetimes. Much research has been done on depression as a disorder, but many oversimplify or just overlook this abiding reality. Puritan pastor Richard Baxter spent much of his ministry caring for depressed and discouraged souls, and his counsel, though now 350 years old, sheds profound insight on how Christians should think about and deal with depression, while acknowledging its complex roots--addressing issues such as sin, physiology, and temperament. With an introduction from renowned theologian J. I. Packer and commentary from psychiatrist Michael Lundy, this book presents Baxter's wise, pastoral counsel to help comfort and strengthen all who struggle with depression or know someone who does.
