7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Maxine B. Cunningham on May 4, 2012
Format: Paperback
Not Alone: Reflections on Faith and Depression engages the reader from beginning to end. The reader becomes a participant on a journey that is both uncomfortable and peaceful; intellectual and emotional; painful and restorative; challenging and daring; sad and exuberant. Coleman does not "sugar coat" the pain and isolation symptomatic of depression and yet every struggle shared includes experiences which strengthen the faith which can undergird the daily lives of those of us who live with a depressive disorder. We hear the voice of the teacher, preacher, and scholar; we read the words of the theologian, philosopher, poet, victim and survivor. We feel the passion of the minister, activist, patient, friend, daughter and mother.

Format: Paperback
Monica Coleman's book can transform your life. It is theology at its best: it contains reflections that speak to your heart, provide a vision of hope, and give you a path to wholeness. This book is accessible to everyone, whether or not you describe yourself with the words "depression." I commend it to readers who wish to deepen their faith and experience healing in their lives.

Format: Paperback
As a pastor and as someone living with a depressive condition, Dr. Coleman's reflections and story resonate with my own journey of suffering in silence until finding those who would walk beside me even in the midst of my darkness, doubting and despair. The devotions and questions invite the readers to reflect on their own on-going journey toward acceptance, hope and the assurance that we never travel alone.
Rev. Susan Gregg-Schroeder (Founder and Coordinator, Mental Health Ministries)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a breath of fresh air for those of us living with mood disorders and trying to establish faith that there is something bigger than us out there. Ms. Coleman reaffirms what doctors and therapists try to tell us, that the depression we live with tells us we are worthless and we are often powerless to resist this internal criticism, even while we yearn for a connection to God and his ability to bring us peace. I congratulate Ms. Coleman for her bravery in writing this book and recommend it to anyone trying to reconcile the isolation of depression with the yearning for a relationship with God.

This is one of the titles in a group I'm a part of online. We are exploring the connections between depression and faith. I look forward to reading it, however, my grandmother (in her late 70s) picked it up and started reading it as she had lost her husband of over 60 years, and found it to be enlightening. I will have to wrestle it away from her to have it in time for my book club discussion (jokingly wrestle it - but there was a little tugging before I let go the first time).

I'm just going to recommend it - and I'll come back later and give a more detailed review.

This book succeeds in so many ways. Coleman's narrative style is down-to-earth and engaging, and it doesn't slip into naval-gazing. She shares about depression candidly--without cheesy or overdramatic description, without romanticizing it. She gives an account of her hope without trivializing the pain of her mental health condition (an inspiring achievement). All the while, she managed to keep me engaged through all 40 reflections. This book is a gift I will return to.

I enjoyed reading this book and participating in a group based on this devotional. I have read some of Monica Coleman's other writings and, as in this book, she makes her faith and those of others clear in her purpose.

Coleman's reflections on depression and faith are that of a scholar and sojourner of suffering. She is refreshingly honest and transparent about her experience living with clinical depression. Her book reminded me that mourning and loss are an important part of the faith journey. She also gave me permission to stop wishing away this season in my journey of faith. Her writing is candid, thoughtful, and scholarly. Highly reccommend the book.
