Over the past year I have battled some intense anxiety-- something I haven't really experienced before. And this has come about during a time of rich blessing both in my home and in our church. Thankfully, I have found a lot of help in the counsel of wise friends, classic works like Richard Sibbes', The Bruised Reed, as well as modern works like Dr. David Murray's Christians Get Depressed Too. Dr. Murray has just put out another Puritan Pod video, this one dealing with how to minister to those experiencing depression. It's a 7 minute video that is clear, balanced, and genuinely helpful as he offers 8 ways to help depressed Christians. You can watch it below, but head over to his blog for links to the books he recommends. His book, Christians Get Depressed Too, is a great place to start on the subject.
