Abstract:

Have you ever been depressed? Have you ever helped someone you love get through depression? Dr. Richard Winter, a practicing psychologist, dispels the myth that those who suffer under the viselike grip of depression should feel guilty before God because they are not happy or more content. He evaluates the treatments that are currently endorsed by doctors, clinical psychologists and counselors, but he adds one treatment that is not found in medical journals. Dr. Winter explains why the biblical perspective of life is essential for reducing our vulnerability to depression, and for achieving healing. Using the testimonies of many people who have come through depression, Winter presents a convincing case of triumph over depression with the help of the ever compassionate, personal God.
