Whether you suffer or have suffered from depression or simply know one of the many people who do, I heartily recommend “I Trust When Dark My Road: A Lutheran View Of Depression.” Written by Rev. Todd Peperkorn and published by LCMS World Relief and Human Care, the 100-page book “offers a rare glimpse into one LCMS pastor’s personal journey through depression while remaining reliant upon God’s grace.” It also has tips for helping loved ones who battle this illness.
Members of my family, myself included, have suffered from depression and I can’t say how welcome such a resource is for those of us in need.
And best of all, it’s free to you! You can get it either as a download to your computer or have a copy mailed to you. Enjoy.
