Book Review - It's Not Always Depression

It's Not Always Depression

By: Hilary Jacobs Hendel, LCSW

Book Reivew

My foray into books of this type is limited, and my perspective on these issues finds its foundation on the Bible. Many folks with my background may not spend time reading books in this category; however, I found it to be valuable and very practically helpful. In my pastoral training, no time was given to describing & and identifying the issues this book does.

The Bible is clear in describing the brokenness of sin, and that is what this book does (from a secular viewpoint). It gives us a methodical way to identify brokenness mentally and emotionally and its affect on us physically. The niche of AEDP therapy is dealing with the emotions in order to bring healing according to this author.

I am not qualified to evaluate this from a professional counselor's perspective. What I will say is that I see great value with God's help to identify brokenness as a pathway to bringing healing that God wants us to experience. The irony of our brokenness is that our ability to diagnose our brokenness is broken! It is always good to have other people, books, and the Holy Spirit himself help us identify our brokenness so we can begin to heal.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
