This book started off as a thought after speaking in many churches, and college settings where individuals who confessed to believe in God, and expressed that they were active believers suddenly “according to them”, started silently struggling with depression and finding no answer to help them with this overwhelming problem.

When Believers Become Depressed  is a candid book about how those who believe in God can become trapped by the darkness and deception of depression, and how they mask their depression through religious efforts.  This book was written to assist believers and those in the helping profession to better understand what the symptoms of depression are for those who have faith in God.  This book will also highlight 21 Symptoms of Spiritual Depression and show you how to challenge yourself to realistically deal with your issues or help someone with theirs.

Everyone at some point in their life will have problems, issues, and situations that may cause them to be saddened or emotionally broken to the point of some form of depression. Sometimes it is more serious than people really think.  This book will examine spiritual depression, the signs and symptoms, and will use Psychological and Biblical principles to help individuals break free from the deception of depression.  This book can be a life-changing tool, if you pick up a copy for yourself, and buy one for someone else.
