Overview

"When I became a Christian I assumed that believers did not get depressed," writes popular author and counselor Bill Coleman. "We were expected to smile, serve, get excited, and roll along." The reality was quite another story. He did get depressed, and to this day he continues to fight the symptoms of a mental condition that can be as debilitating as any physical ailment.

If you or someone you love battles chronic depression, this book can help. It is not an ABC book on how to defeat depression. Rather, it is a book of "connecting," written by someone who has been there. Coleman acknowledges, "I've seen the bottom of the pit and the peak of the mountain; I've traveled every foot of the path between the two."

A Light in the Shadows illuminates the world of the chronically depressed, and offers practical insights on what to do and say--and what not to do and say--to help someone who is spiraling downward. A final chapter, written by the author's wife, will give spouses and other caregivers additional tools for coping during the dark times.
