Review: Among Christians there is often a major debate about depression and how God and His word and medicine fit together. As Linda Lufkin relates her journey through depression, she mixes the two concepts well. While Linda points out her need for doctors and medication, she also pulls the reader to God and His word through many appropiate Scriptures. This author also touches on how the past can affect depression. This enables her readers to start seperating self-worth from depression and therefore clearing a way for God to continue to heal the person.
As a person who also journeys through the hills and valleys of depression, I have read many books on the subject. A Pathway to Healing is the tops in combining pulling me closer to God for healing while not denying the possible need for medication. It is definitely a book that I will refer to again and again.
