Description

Mental illness. These words illicit frightening images of uncontrolled behavior, hospital confinement, and destructive violence. But mental illness is often much more subtle--and much more prevalent than we imagine. Unfortunately, people who are diagnosed as mentally ill may not understand what is happening to them. And for Christians, some "helpful" leaders heap on guilt, saying that the problem is spiritual rather than emotional or physical. This book takes Steve's personal story of major depression and weaves through it Robyn's insights and Steve's professional knowledge. The result is a tapestry of practical information--including definitions, treatment options, government services available, and interactions with the church and God--and a deep compassion for those who feel like their world is falling apart. "If this book can help to dispel the stigma of mental illness and depression, remove the fallacious claims of the nouthetic counseling, integrationist, and spiritual warfare devotees, and recover the wisdom of the Puritans for pastoral counseling of the depressed, it will have done a great service for God's church." --John Rawlinson General Manager The Banner of Truth Trust "The Bloems have produced a useful, biblical, practical, and pastoral book that presents spiritual truth and provides hope for the mentally ill or those caring for them." -- Chaplain, Colonel John Poston Steve Bloem (B.A., Cornerstone University; M.Min., Baptist Bible Seminary, Clarks Summit, Penn.) has been a children' therapist to socially and emotionally disturbed youth, been involved in clinical counseling/case management for a mental health agency, and presently is in private practice as the director of Heartfelt Counseling Ministries Inc. But it was his own struggle with depression that led him to write this book. Robyn Bloem has been a volunteer in a variety of inner-city and church ministries for more than twenty years.
