Light in the Darkness

This book should be available for reference in every Christian home. Besides being a great read, it is an invaluable aid in keeping our heads straight about God's view of our struggles. I could not recommend it more highly for our depressed brothers and sisters, and for those who work with them.

—From the foreword by Dr. Gary Smalley, Author and speaker on family relationships


Many Christians struggle with the dark shadows depression can cast over our lives. Too often, our depression is compounded by a sense of personal shame or guilt. Light in the Darkness shows us how, rather than sickness or sin, depression is actually a signal, warning us of emotional damage that needs repair. Here, readers will find a blueprint for restoring emotional health and rekindling the hope of faith that is both biblically and psychologically sound.

The corresponding Light in the Darkness Workshop Kit provides everything you need to lead an in-depth study of Dr. Gary Lovejoy and Dr. Gregory Knopf's practical and hopeful book. It's also a great way to reach out to people in your community who may be experiencing depression.
