    A Book of Hope

    Leslie Vernick, a Christian counselor who has battled depression in her own life and has worked with many depressed women, brings warm and professional advice about ¿the blues¿ and more serious depressive illnesses. Statistics say one in five women will experience blues in her lifetime. That means this book is urgently needed, particularly since it provides a Christian world view for a woman¿s emotional health picture. She helps dispel the notion that Christians don¿t get depressed by sharing quotes from clients whom she has guided to healing. She also integrates Bible verses to buttress her points about the character of God and how depression distorts our perception of God, cloys our relationships, and erodes our understanding of our personal value. Early on, Vernick urges her reader not to buy this as a self-help manual to ¿cure¿ depression. She warns readers that depression is a serious condition that can have degenerative effects on the brain and other parts of the body. She urges those who think they may be depressed to seek treatment from a doctor and counselor, who can tailor a plan to help each person. But for those who find themselves prone to ¿the blues,¿ she offers helpful counsel by looking at depression through the lens of relationships. Particularly helpful were the application points after each chapter, called ¿First Steps,¿ which give easily applied homework to help a woman better understand herself, her stress points, and her relationships. This is more than a book on ¿depression.¿ Buy it to help you understand what is pulling on your own life and to get a handle on the hard questions about pain and suffering. Throughout the book and especially in the appendix are helpful lists of scriptures that deal with the various issues involved in depression.
