Coming to God

In spiritual depression, we lose the familiar sense of things around us: others are different, values change, and our past world may be suddenly outdated. We are distant from the world of things, and we are “pressed in” on ourselves.

Coming to God

Most academic and therapeutic programs do not include spirituality and God as essential components of health and treatment. Dr. William Kraft gives God a principal place in the house of psychology. He shows how and why God experiences are paramount in helping us live a healthy and happy life. He describes and analyzes what are healthy and unhealthy experiences of God and how activities, including religion, can help and hinder our coming to God. In short, this book is about how and why we come or do not come to God, and what difference it makes.

Defy Gravity

New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason. Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments—from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer—Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing’s spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment. Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought. You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.

Human Nature

Malcolm Jeeves, former editor-in-chief of Neuropsychologia, a leading international scientific journal in behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, explores the intersection of science and faith in defining what it means to be human. He reports on recent scientific research on consciousness and the link between mind, brain, and behavior. He examines issues such as determinism by indicating the possible relevance of chaos theory to enduring concerns about freedom and responsibility. He looks at similarities and differences between human nature and animal nature. He reexamines traditional dualist views of soul and body in the light of contemporary research on mind and brain and argues for a wholistic model. This leads to addressing questions such as: Does spiritual awareness depend on the intactness of our brains or does spirituality stand apart from our biological substrate? This book: Responds to scientific developments in psychology and neuroscience from the perspective of a person with Christian faith; Relates scientific research on the mind, brain, and behavior to Christian beliefs such as moral choice and responsibility; Malcolm Jeeves is an internationally recognized researcher in neuropsychology.

When Believers Become Depressed

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. Paperback: 232 pages

Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible.

Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition.

Depression Through A Biblical Lens

People with bad feelings and feeling-directed behavior—anger, fear, worry, depression—usually are given a psychiatric label. Initially, I was comfortable with that approach, but I have come to realize that people must be evaluated based on a proper understanding of the Bible. When that happens the whole person (thinking, wanting, and doing) will be considered—not just outward behavior and feelings. Feelings, their generation and the person’s response to them, will not be the major criteria for some label or the target for treatment, medical and otherwise. Rather, thinking and wanting that leads to bad feelings will be the target of the Christian helper—friend, pastor, counselor, and physician. Thinking, wanting, and doing—thereby feelings, will be evaluated using the filter of biblical truth. The truth sets people free as they apply it to their situation with the goal of pleasing God. Biblically-controlled thinking and wanting will replace sinful thoughts and desires. Biblically-controlled actions will follow. Turning the patient to the root and heart of the issue—his thinking and wanting and his relationship with Christ—is the first step in helping the person get victory in his problems, not necessarily out of them. Victory, God’s way, won’t come until we view all feeling states, and man, from a biblical perspective.

The Antinomian Controversy  1636 1638

The Antinomian controversy—a seventeenth-century theological crisis concerning salvation—was the first great intellectual crisis in the settlement of New England. Transcending the theological questions from which it arose, this symbolic controversy became a conflict between power and freedom of conscience. David D. Hall's thorough documentary history of this episode sheds important light on religion, society, and gender in early American history. This new edition of the 1968 volume, published now for the first time in paperback, includes an expanding bibliography and a new preface, treating in more detail the prime figures of Anne Hutchinson and her chief clerical supporter, John Cotton. Among the documents gathered here are transcripts of Anne Hutchinson's trial, several of Cotton's writings defending the Antinomian position, and John Winthrop's account of the controversy. Hall's increased focus on Hutchinson reveals the harshness and excesses with which the New England ministry tried to discredit her and reaffirms her place of prime importance in the history of American women.

Extraordinary Awakenings

A compelling investigation of how intense psychological suffering can lead to a dramatic shift into a new, expansive identity Why do some people who experience the worst that life has to offer respond not by breaking down but by shifting up, into a higher-functioning, awakened state, like phoenixes rising from the ashes? And perhaps more importantly, how can we emulate their transformations? Over many years of observing and studying the phenomenon of life-changing awakening through extreme suffering, Steve Taylor coined the term “transformation through turmoil.” He calls these people “shifters” and here shares dozens of their amazing stories. In addition, Taylor uncovers the psychological processes that explain these miraculous rebirths after years of struggle or devastating loss, addiction, or imprisonment. He highlights a number of lessons and guidelines that the shifters offer us. In Extraordinary Awakenings, readers will find not only riveting stories of transformation that show the amazing resilience of the human spirit, but also hope and guidance to call on during their own struggles, together with inspiration and profound food for thought.

Dust in the Blood

”61 Farrington testifies that the helplessness of the sufferer amid the Dark Night gives way to a promising positive outcome; depression is thus a process of spiritual purification guided by God's noble purposes.

Dust in the Blood

Dust in the Blood considers the harrowing realities of life with depression from a Christian theological perspective. In conversation with popular Christian theologies of depression that justify why this suffering exists and prescribe how people ought to relate to it, Coblentz offers another Christian approach to this condition: she reflects on depression as a wilderness experience. Weaving first-person narratives of depression, contemporary theologies of suffering, and ancient biblical tales of the wilderness, especially the story of Hagar, Coblentz argues for and contributes to an expansion of Christian ideas about what depression is, how God relates to it, and how Christians should understand and respond to depression in turn.
