Item description for A Soul Under Siege: Surviving Clergy Depression by C. Welton Gaddy, Wayne E. Oates & Wayne E. Cates...

What happens when a pastor becomes seriously depressed? Some continue working, since ''the show must go on.'' Gaddy didn't. In his intensely personal book, he tells how he ''stopped the show,'' entered a modern psychiatric hospital, and discovered there a more honest and vulnerable community than he'd ever known in the church. Along the way, Gaddy looks realistically at aspects of pastoral ministry that promote depression and other destructive behaviors.

Publishers Description

What do ministers do when they get depressed? Do they just work because "the show must go on"? Some ministers may, but C. Welton Gaddy did not. In this intensely personal book, described by Wayne E. Oates as "frank, considerate, and attention keeping," the author tells the story of how he "stopped the show," entered a well-organized, modern psychiatric unit, and received psychiatric care. He also tells of his discovery in the hospital of a more honest community than he had ever known in the church. Gaddy describes his experiences as a pastoral minister who went from good to bad health (including a deep depression) and back to even better health. In a sometimes painfully confessional but always soundly theological narrative, the author takes a realistic look at those aspects of ministry that can be destructive.
