Item description for Depression and Hope: New Insights for Pastoral Counseling by Howard W. Stone...

People have long been familiar with the debilitating, sometimes even fatal, effects of depression, and chronic depression can strike even the most fortunate of persons. For centuries spiritual writers have probed melancholia, as it has been traditionally termed, to articulate the problem of meaning and the trustworthiness of existence. Yet today depression is the next most frequent occasion for visits to clergy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Depression and Hope: New Insights for Pastoral Counseling?

This will change how you deal with depression.  Nov 15, 2001
This book has changed my ministry. I have been a pastor for 20 years with a degree in social work and lots of graduate credits in pastoral care and counseling, and did not expect this book to impact me so much. Stone makes a solid case for a framework for pastoral counseling that is of necessity short-term and forward looking. Then he puts ministry to those who are depressed, the "common cold of mental health," into that context. The result is outstanding. It is a foundational work for my own book with Augsburg Fortress that will be out in 2002, titled "When You Are Depressed." This review is unsolicited and heartfelt. +
