Personal Freedom - How the Gospel can be good for your mental health


This book is a useful tool for an in-depth study of Scripture in relation to mental health and personal well-being. It is not a ‘quick fix’ recipe, nor does it offer to be. The burden of content is more suited to believing Christians than to non-believers. Those who have not spent much time in church may find the language and references difficult to understand. However, the book is well researched and packed full of Biblical truth. [Review by Hillery]
 

From the Amazon website:

 

In an increasingly complex and stressful world, people are insecure, anxious, tired and depressed. There is an ongoing search for a greater sense of identity, purpose and freedom. Sincere attempts are made to find satisfying answers; many are left with frustration and despair. This book aims to show how the gospel, properly understood and embraced, can potentially have a positive impact on a believer's mental health. The goal is to help people move from brokenness to maturity in the power of Christ, that they may be better equipped to love and serve Him.
