My Top Five Books on Depression

Biblical counseling resources on depression.

As many of you know I read a lot. I thought I would share some of the books that I have found helpful in thinking through depression from a biblical perspective.

Some of these were assigned reading in my biblical counseling program for my Master’s in Divinity and others are helpful resources I found afterward.

I hope they are helpful to you. Write a comment on which one you find/found most helpful.
