God’s Way out of Depression
by David Cross
The Bible shows us that God has an answer to depression, which is today’s most common human disorder in terms of the number of people affected worldwide. Through the healing ministry of Jesus, we explore the roots of this debilitating disease and then travel with Him on a journey of freedom. Thankfully, the medical profession is gaining increasing understanding in how to alleviate the symptoms of depression. However only God can bring restoration to the deep spiritual dysfunction in our lives, which frequently lies at the heart of medical disorders.
This book incorporates testimonies from twelve people, each with very different life stories. They describe their miraculous healing journey out of major depression. Their experiences affirm the keys given to us in the Bible for pursuing God’s restoration of His created order in our lives. This book does not advocate a technique for healing, however it seeks to point the reader towards powerful biblical principles which can open the door to God’s way out of depression.
The Truth and Freedom book series provides vital teaching and ministry guidelines on a wide range of healing-related topics. An excellent resource for everyone involved in the healing and discipleship ministries.
