Why do I find this a helpful work for pastoral counseling? I love the brevity of this booklet which means it is readable for the individual the pastor is ministering to. Plus there are times I have found those who are depressed are probably not going to be able to read as thick of a work as the pastor may like in light of the individual’s lack of motivation which is a symptom of their depression. I also appreciated that the author packed a lot of gold within the 28 pages of this book. It is clear, simple and practical while evaluating depression theologically and spiritually.
The section of this booklet include “How can I do anything when I don’t feel anything?,” “What is your depression saying? What does it mean?,” “Follow the path that God leads,” and “Don’t give up.” In addition the end of the booklet also addresses some common questions and I found here the answer to “What has helped other people?” to be very encouraging. Welch had other people who have passed through depression complete the statement, “I saw changes in my experiences of depression when…” I found it quite encouraging to see thirteen answers people gave and I’m sure others can identify with.
I don’t want to give the rest of the book away but I hope this review would encourage people who are depressed to get this booklet and also for those who minister to others to be equipped.
