Draws on Charles Spurgeon’s experience with depression to illuminate the profound relationship between body, mind, and spirit. Spurgeon’s insight promotes emotional wholeness while recognizing God as the author of hope.
Elizabeth Skoglund deftly relates the teachings of Charles Spurgeon to such human experiences as loneliness, anxiety, depression, and change. Her conclusions are wise and practical. This is a book to keep for rereading -- John Timmerman, professor of English, Calvin College
Though many are accustomed to lookingto Spurgeon as a model for sermonic inspiration, theological understanding, evangelistic fervor, dedication to truth, devotional comfort, and even entertaining humor, this book will inspire us to consider Spurgeon in the darker times of despondency. If such a humble and mighty servant of God as Spurgeon suffered these agonies, may others not profit from the study of his experiences, so wonderfully spread before us by Elizabeth Skoglund? -- Bob L. Ross, director, Pilgrim Publications, Pasadena, Texas
