Read full description of the books:
I was delighted to meet this fine book of spiritual practices for people living with depression. More resources like this would be a good and useful thing. Many was the time in my active ministry when I would wish for a book like this for spiritual groups and for individual use. 40 day format, so it fits well into the christian church year. Following this as a religious community would invite those who do not live with depression to approach greater appreciation and understanding, to open conversations, and to find the connections among us all. Rooted in the African American church traditions, we are invited regularly to faith and history for lifelines and resilience. Recommended.

In her book, NOT ALONE: Reflections on Faith and Depression, Coleman offers a 40-day devotional wrestling with depression in a spiritual context.
