Just The Thing Jan 24, 2008
This book is an accurate, theologically sound, and extremely apt treatment of the concept of depression. Lloyd-Jones sermons are not the "I'm OK, You're OK" feelgood approach to counseling the Christian. Instead, he asks the Christian to REALLY put feet to his faith. If we believe in the GOOD News, where do we get off allowing ourselves to be enslaved to our emotions? I've known several people suffering from repeated and/or acute bouts of depression who have had the needed "AHA!" moments while reading this book. I read it myself and found it a wonderful lesson, even though I don't really struggle with that particular problem. If you are struggling with depression, or a spiritual low point; I highly recommend this book. Actually, I simply highly recommend this book - no matter what point of life you are experiencing.
