More About the Author

Crossroads was designed as a group study for those struggling with addiction. These ten steps, presented in author Ed Welch's trademark direct, no-nonsense style, provide a biblical and practical framework for change. Welch is a wise and loving partner who walks beside readers on their journey to freedom. Along the way, they will learn to recognize the patterns of addiction, to choose wisdom over foolish desires, and to cling to the hope they have in Jesus, who sets captives free. The path away from addiction has been laid by a God who is full of surprises, who faithfully pursues those enslaved even though they have deliberately avoided him.

This is some of the best information on the subject that I have found. Great for sufferers AND those who love them. Depression is a very real condition and not something you can just 'will' away. This small booklet is full of good information and not overwhelming at all. I have purchased several and given them to people I love who suffer with depression. All have told me that they found it very helpful.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Un esclave ignorant s'inclina devant un Saint Majestic Dieu on November 5, 2013
Format: Paperback
Dr. Welch has always been a strong supporter of biological illnesses impacting mood. He assumes this is part of English speaking culture. He has always encouraged my physiology work, neurology work and psychopharmacology work.

He has done advanced doctoral work on physiology and primates.

I think to cut to chase he appeals that we can make good things into gods. Many would agree and use other terms. HE IS A RADICAL THEIST. HE THINKS AND WRITES IN A WORLD WITH A PERSONAL GOD WHO IS LOVING AND ALSO HOLY.

That latter word is rare these days.

Simply, he appeals to people not to embrace victimization, since that makes things worse if stay in that place, but that suffering and actions that are not constructive undermine emotional health.

Dr. Ed can say new things about old set principles and it is not obvious since saying in a way that is not boring.

He is happy to steal ideas from all genres of psychology, his area, but is not the slave of any.

This is a kind, humble and very caring man. He does NOT believe in the trivialization of faith as a wart on the body.

I say to all psychologists that one should not waste time if signs of a biological component, but I see that in too MANY non-MD mental health workers. And Dr. Welch is not anti-pharmacology, but may want to be sure it is not due to an addiction or due to serial affairs if depression is modest. If the drugs or actions increase despair and a feeling of slavery, he may address this to help you. Since body damage and treating people as things in alienated sex is not generally helpful to mood--unless one is a psychopath.

very informative and to the point. we can all be depressed about something. it is what you focus on that can heal or deepen you depression. in my opinion. I choose to focus on the healer Jesus Christ and his words of encouragement found in the Holy scriptures. they are healing.

Most depressed people are not going to read a whole book. This is a great discussion starter and a good length for someone suffering with depression. I used this to lead my dear wife and her brother into a study of Dr. Welch's full book on the subject.
