Fifty powerful reflections, each linked with a familiar Bible passage and a heartfelt prayer, offer hope and consolation to those suffering from the devastating effects of depression, as well as those trying to assist them.
"The first time I saw this book was in a local bookstore. It was the title that originally caught my interest. I pulled the small book off the shelf and begin to skim the information on the back. I was about to replace the book on the shelf—after all, how could a Catholic priest have any insight on depression relevant to a middle aged woman?—when something compelled me to open the book at random and start reading. I felt as if the author had looked into my heart and soul. This was describing MY experience with depression. This is the book I keep by my bed in case I need to read something inspirational to get to sleep. It makes me feel less alone knowing that someone else has experienced much of what I have. I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers from depression, or anyone who is just looking to understand what this terrible disease is like from someone who knows. Thank you, Father Burke, for sharing your experience with us and giving us the one thing so often lacking in depression—hope."
