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.

If you struggle at all with depression I would recommend this book. I bought an extra to give to a friend. It is from a biblical perspective and that's what I like about it because it actually makes sense to me, and has allowed me to understand where I struggle and how to get through it. Even if you are not interested in the Bible at all it still makes sense(that's whats great about the bible, whats in the bible is whats best for us, such as loving people is better than being mean or not being selfish is better for you than being self centered, its more rewarding to live that way), and is very freeing to understand things this way, I would highly recommend this book. Its pretty much the opposite of what everyone tells you, but it makes sense.

This was one of those books that kind of combine psychology with Biblical truths to offer a very practical and truthful way to approach struggles with depression. I think it's a great book for practical-minded people that want to understand where depression comes from in the mind, and how it works overall as a result of your expectations and dependencies.

We all have different personalities, so it may not be a book for everyone. But I can definitely say that it's helpful as you can see where you may be setting yourself up for disappointment without even realizing it.

This is the newer "reboot" version of the same previous book with a different title, although I can't remember the name of the older one at the moment. I have both books, and this newer version has an easier paragraph format and added notes in the chapters, as well as an updated cover. This is one of those books that I hand out to friends knowing that they will get some benefit out of reading it whether struggling or not. I think it has some good information for everyone.

There is much psychology in the church these days, but the power of Christ needs no help from Psychologist or psychiatrists.Either Christ has the power to transform through his word, or he doesn't.

Victory Over Depression doesn't provide a formula.... instead this book gets to the root of what's behind depression. And then it takes you to the answer. AND IT'S ALL DRUG FREE AND IT WON'T COST YOU A DIME FOR COUNSELING SERVICES.

Almost all depression is rooted in Anger. Anger is rooted in fear so when you get to the root of the fear, then anger is uprooted and lies are replaced with truth.

You've probably tried everything else...... well, try this.
Try Jesus and his truth. And see if your depression doesn't lift.

I recommend this book for everyone you'll find out your more normal than you think. And you'll be set free from stinkin-thinkin.

I could tell in just the first few pages that this was EXACTLY what I needed and felt such a great relief wash over me.
It is well written, "un-verbose", and having a workbook/study guide attached within the book is fantastic. I'm halfway through and have already learned more than I have in any other self-help book on depression.
