From the Inside Flap
Many books have been written on religious melancholy, but most authors have not really experienced the condition. By contrast, Rogers had a unique perspective for he lived through terrible darkness of soul. He wrote from the depths of his heart, with the Word of God his unchanging standard, to help others toward healing.

Spurgeon himself suffered from melancholy (what we call depression today). Here is what he said: "Yes, a child of God may be in despondency for many a year. Timothy Rogers was the victim of despondency for many years, and yet he came out into the light, and then wrote his experience in his memorable book upon "Trouble of Mind," which has been of great service to others in like condition."
Perhaps this short review from over 100 years ago will help some sufferer to be helped by Rogers' book. As Spurgeon said, referring to the cock that crowed before Peter's denials, "Providence has messengers everywhere."
