  1. I bought this for my wife who suffers from Chronic Depression She didn t have anything tragic happen to cause it, she s just always had chronic depression since she was a teenager She said this book doesn t do a good job of admitting that chronic depression is real and that not everyone who is depressed are that way because of previous illness like cancer It also uses a single study to suggest that medication isn t the solution, even though that goes against all the other science out there that [...]


  2. This book is very helpful for me as a Christian that battles life long depression I have tried countless medications, therapies, TMS, ECT and I m still a mess I was convinced that my life was a mistake and God didn t really care at all, just wishing I could die most of the time This book has given me some hope that God does love and care about me and my son.


  3. I am a doctor and have given this book to many patients with depression Each has stated this book helps I also suffer from depression and it is hard to find books about depression written from a christian view who truly understand how difficult depression makes life


  4. This book is super short but really profound I think it s actually the perfect length for someone going through a dark spell with little motivation to read a long, dense book I really liked that Piper gave depression the complexity it was due and didn t claim that all depression was sin related, yet still also offered hard, tangible truths that someone struggling could really hold on to JohnnyPipes4L


  5. I work with people every day who are struggling with depression and some who have attempted or considered suicide I just want to say to those who struggle that it will get better with time Fight to get back to where you see the sunlight again This book is a great tool to have in the toolbox.


  6. It appears this book is an addendum to another book or a supplement for a series of messages Also, as much as I respect John Piper, his take on depression is simplistic and leans toward invalidating those who suffer with a true mental illness.



  7. I think it was written with a lot of thought and backed up pretty consistently with Bible verses Some very good points were made in this book, that to me, a depressed Christian, as I would put it, this gave me some Biblical, practical input on how to better deal with a lot of this I think it s worth the money Marc Trainor.


  8. John Piper quite frankly knows his stuff He explores the whole issue of depression from such a balanced, wise and wide ranging view point that this is the first book I now recommend to people suffering from depression or similar issues, with very positive results.Taken from and expanded on When I don t desire God this book explores a Christian response to depression, and as such takes the lead in the field He has a great handle on the causes of depression, CBT, and the whole puritan response to [...]


  9. Fantastic piece of writing If you find yourself in a season of trial this may be just the thing you need I wept when I reached the paragraph relating to justification by faith and was encouraged by this written work I ve re read it a couple of times memory going and it s good because it doesn t say there s someone worse off than you or just get up and get on with it it s practical too in that if you re exhausted etc, this too can affect your well being I enjoyed it and would recommend it to the [...]
