Editorial Reviews

Review

If we need a friend during the times that depression brings, then Vanier offers himself as one of those friends. -- Spiritual Book News

Its author has lived long and intently with what he describes so his assessments are lucid and his prescriptions credible. -- Prairie Messenger (Saskatchewan)

About the Author

JEAN VANIER, the son of former governor general Georges Vanier, was educated in England and Canada. After eight years in the Royal and the Canadian Navy, he went to study in France, where he received his doctorate in philosophy, later teaching at St. Michael s College (University of Toronto). Distressed by the plight of people with developmental challenges, he founded L Arche communities, and Faith and L ight, two international networks of communities for people with disabilities. With many bestselling books and humanitarian awards to his name including the Pope Paul VI International Prize, the International Peace Award and the Companion of the Order of Canada Vanier lives in Trosly, France, in the original L Arche community he founded in 1964.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jean Vanier, noted spiritual author and founder of the L'Arche communities for people with learning disabilities, gently describes various aspects of the causes of, experience of, and recovery from depression.
Though neither a clinical analysis nor a first-person narrative, Seeing Beyond Depression is informed by both psychological theory and personal experience. Vanier's approach is to provide a meditative mixture of realism and hope intended to speak to the spiritual state of the depressed person.
The author's tone is that of one friend caring for another, and this slim volume would certainly make a thoughtful gift to a friend who is depressed, even if that friend is yourself.

Jean Vanier's books have recently become what Henri Nouwen's books were during the 90s. Real & life-giving! More to read.
