From Depression to Deliverance Book Description:

Depression: The chemical imbalance in the brain that attacks the very soul. Yet, as late as 1974, the American Psychiatric Association listed in their diagnostic manual "strong religious belief" as a disorder. Is depression exclusively a chemical imbalance? And as recently as today many pastors in the religious community discourage their parishioners from seeking medical help. Is depression exclusively a spiritual attack? From Depression to Deliverance is a spiritual companion to your doctor's advice demonstrating that depression is an attack on the mind, body and spirit. Thus, in order to win this battle, we have to attack it on all three fronts embracing both the scientific and spiritual communities. You are not alone in this battle. So join us on this pilgrimage from a psychiatrist's office, to the great outdoors with a few church sermons on the way; from mourning to joy, from torment to peace, from darkness into God's wonderful light.
