Mental illness is a major problem for many people--male or female, young or old, religious or atheist. Christians are certainly no exception; yet, unfortunately, the same stigma surrounding mental illness in society is present in Christian circles too. The first in a two-volume set from author Dr. Stephen Saunders, this book takes an in-depth look at mental illness while also offering grace and encouragement from God's Word. Saunders describes many common mental afflictions in great detail, including their symptoms, risk factors, and the effects they can have on loved ones. He then presents key biblical principles--sin and grace, law and gospel, and others--to show that God is in control and has not deserted those who suffer. By reading this book, you'll be better prepared to help your loved ones endure whatever mental trials they might face.
