The following is the blurb that is on page 10 of the Spring 2009 edition of Caring, from LCMS World Relief:
Free Resource Explores Clergy and Depression LCMS World Relief and Human Careâ€™s newest resource reflects Rev. Todd Peperkornâ€™s personal journey through depression, I Trust When Dark My Road: A Lutheran View of Depression. LCMS WR-HC Executive Director Rev. Matthew Harrison recommends the book to all associated with professional church work: â€œThis book offers a path to hope, and a future through Christ.â€ Dr. Beverly K. Yahnke, a licensed clinical psychologist, writes in the bookâ€™s forward: â€œWhen oneâ€™s mind and soul journey across the ghastly landscape of clinical depression, the adventure may challenge faith, hope, and life itself. â€¦ Peperkorn invites us into the world of a depressed Christian who remains reliant upon Godâ€™s grace.â€ The book is expected to be available in mid-June. To request your complimentary copy, call 800-248-1930, ext. 1380.
This was originally posted on my other blog, I Trust When Dark My Road. I have kept this blog quasi-anonymous for almost three years, but with the publication of this book, my double secret identity is now moot. I would please urge you to go to the above blog and subscribe to it. There is a great community of fellow sufferers, and I believe it will be worth your while.
Enjoy, and order as many books as you think you’ll use! THEY’RE FREE!
