What Does Depression Mean for My Faith?

Kathryn Butler, MD


Biblical Hope for Those Who Suffer from Clinical Depression

Studies show that everyone will encounter someone who struggles with clinical depression at some point in their lifetime. Its debilitating, pervasive joylessness is crippling. Depression can affect your body and brain, numb your emotions, and put strain on your relationships. For Christians, it can even inhibit them from delighting in the greatest gift ever known—the good news of the gospel.

What should Christians think about clinical depression? How can church leaders respond lovingly to those who face this dark, unsettling, and sometimes baffling dilemma? In What Does Depression Mean for My Faith? author and physician Kathryn Butler addresses common misconceptions about mental illness in the church. She offers grace, relief, and practical help to Christians who feel shame, and she equips church leaders with the tools they need to extend Christ’s love to the vulnerable.
