Format: Paperback
This is a book you will either treasure or trash, and it all depends on your perspective.

If you are a Christian, and believe that Jesus lived, was crucified, died, and rose victorious from the grave, then this book will speak to your soul in teh most meaningful way. It will impart a whole new appreciation for the sacrifice of Christ, what that sacrifice means for your life, and how it can impact your life in a truly amazing manner, allowing you to live above any and all circumstances. Author Bob George clearly spells out what the Christian worldview is and how the "Good News" of the gospel message can change one's perspective and thereby lift depression. He goes into detail on how false expectations and dependencies can lead one into depression. The solution to depression is to first recognize the false ideas, false expectations, and unhealthy dependencies that lead to depression. Author George devotes a chapter to these unhealthy maladaptive tendencies, explains how they start, why they start, and how they over the course of time lead to an unfulfilled empty life which in some people result in depression. The next step is to begin the process of aquiring and learning the mind of Christ, to see life from an eternal perspective, and to ultimately learn to live above one's circumstances. He likens the Christian worldview perspective to the Apostle Paul, when Paul wrote he was "content in any circumstance".

In addition to developing a mindset that overcomes depression, George's book is a sterling primer on original sin, how it corrupts the thinking of mankind, how these rebellious thoughts lead to emotions, and how the emotions then lead to actions that separate us from God.
