Christians Get Depressed Too

January 27, 2011

Dr. David Murray, who does a regular podcast with Tim Challies, has written a book called, Christians Get Depressed Too.  Wes Bredenhof reviews the book over at his personal blog.  An excerpt:

I’ve read and reviewed several books on this subject over the years.  I’ve learned that depression is a dark and ugly consequence of the fall into sin.  It is no less a part of this world of dysfunction than is cancer.  At the same, I’ve learned (and Murray’s book has reinforced this) that depression reminds us of how little we know about the workings of the human brain and how it relates to our non-material aspect (our soul).  Finally, I’ve become convinced that God brings trials (including depression) our way so as to shape, teach, and lead us.  This little book brings us back to the Word through which that all happens.
