I just want to start out by saying, I apparently didn’t read what “Depression, Anxiety and the Christian Life” is about before agreeing to review it. However, depression and anxiety are both traits I have dealt with a lot through out my life and even more so in recent months and years.
I had a really hard time reading “Depression, Anxiety and the Christian Life” and staying with it. I felt like the author was talking at me instead of to me. However, the authors of the book took practical wisdom from Richard Baxter who lived during 1615-1691 to write this book.
I do believe “Depression, Anxiety, and the Christian Life” has a lot of really good content and ideas for helping someone who treats people who suffer from depression and anxiety. However, being the person who suffers from depression and anxiety, I don’t feel this book was written for me. I feel this book was written for the physician who treats me.
