An intimate account of struggling with depression and breakdown as a Christian.
Many Christians who suffer from depression and mental breakdown struggle to rationalise it with their faith. In this honest and thoughtful book, Jon Grogan shares what helped him to understand and recover from depressive illness. This empathetic approach will help sufferers feel better understood, with an improved understanding of the issues they deal with on a daily basis, and a renewed sense of place within the church community.
From Over The Edge addresses the way in which different Christian spiritual traditions can be drawn upon to help sufferers and complement treatments that are likely to be on offer.
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.
Jon Grogan is a lawyer and lives in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. He is married with two children.
