Book Summary of Depression by Edward T. Welch


Depression is a form of suffering. There is not one sure answer to determine what caused it or how it can be ‘fixed’. Depression makes the sufferer feel alone, as if no one could help them or no one has ever faced what they are facing. 

While the natural reaction to depression and suffering is isolation, we should never go through it on our own. We need God, our church, and our family to help us when we suffer, and depression is no different. These people can help us listen to our depression, help us sift through advice and aid, and help us pursue hope and joy in God in the midst of our suffering. 

It is possible to look up from depression even when we don’t want to, but we can never do it alone.
