    Excellent book on a difficult topic

    Just got this book and devoured it in one sitting. Very compelling and thoughtfully written. A great book for anyone who has lived with depression themselves or seen a loved one struggle with it.

    christians can be depressed and still have faith

    A compassionate and honest look at depression from one who knows the darkness first hand and has much wisdom to share. Note especially Rev. Crafton's discussion of Mother Theresa who suffered from persistent feelings of joyless separation from God inspite of her faith in God and life of service for the poor. This chapter is brilliantly insightful about the possible undiagnosed depression she suffered from and how "dark night of the soul" theology could be both helpful and not helpful. A nuanced and lyrical analysis without any religious pablum! Reading that can help open the ideas especially of Christians and other people of faith to the dangerous idea that no one who has faith should be depressed. Everyone must read this book! Depression has plagued members of my family--and I am a survivor of two suicides, my nephew and a friend, so it was deeply healing, especially due to its compassionate honesty about depression and how difficult it is to live with it, either for the ones with the disease or someone who love them. Yet, she finds hope.

    If you care about spirituality and struggle with depression, this book is wonderful.

    "Jesus Wept" is written by an Episcopal priests, Barbara Crafton who struggles with her own depression. If you struggle with it and try to care about your spiritual life, this book is hard to put down. I highly recommend it for everyone who is like that. It is by far the best book that I've read on depression.
