A Path Through the Sea: One Woman's Journey from Depression to Wholeness

Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1993 - 244 páginas
In this frank, instructive, and heartening personal story, Lillian Grissen tells about the severe depression that she herself experienced. Her pain - mental, emotional, and physical pain - was excruciating, and at first she felt hopelessly trapped in it. But with the help of a gifted Christian psychiatrist, Grissen began to stop blaming herself and to confront the core of her problem - her relationship as a child with her mother. Over a period of five long years - also with her husband's support, her pastor's compassionate counsel, and the right combination of therapy and medication, and God's gracious strength - Grissen gradually climbed out of the pit of her depression. "A profound yet simple book about a complex condition: clinical depression. Only one who has experienced the pain of the darkness of depression and the joy of the light of recovery could have had the courage to trace the arduous journey." - Katie Funk Wiebe, author of Bless Me Too, My Father
