Overview

About the close of the 17th century, Timothy Rogers, a pious and able minister of London, fell into a state of deep melancholy. Such was the distressing darkness of his mind that he gave up all hope of the mercy of God and believed himself to be a vessel of wrath, designed for destruction for the praise of the glorious justice of the Almighty. His sad condition was known by many pious ministers and people throughout the country, who, it is believed, were earnest and incessant in their supplications on his behalf. Thus it pleased God to grant a complete deliverance for His suffering servant.

Having received comfort of the Lord, Rogers was exceedingly desirous to be instrumental in administering the same comfort to others. He therefore wrote several books with this object in view. One of these was entitled, Recovery from Sickness, another, Consolation for the Afflicted, and a third, Trouble of Mind and the Disease of Melancholy.
