Many Christians who suffer from depression and mental breakdown struggle to rationalise it with their faith. In this honest and disarming book, Jon Grogan shares with readers what helped him to understand and recover from depressive illness. Christians can often be unsure about how their faith can relate to the fields of psychology and psychiatry, and Jon’s careful navigation of these subjects, mixed with a sprinkle of humour, brings much-needed illumination.
From Over The Edge also addresses the way in which different Christian spiritual traditions can be drawn upon to help the sufferer and complement treatments that are likely to be on offer. The holistic and empathetic approach will leave readers feeling better understood, as well as having an increased understanding of the issues they deal with on a daily basis.
-- Jon Grogan is a lawyer and lives in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. He is married with two children.
