About "Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures"
SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION is one of the great classics of the modern Church and tackles the big question: If Christianity is such "good news" why are its followers often unhappy? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was possibly the greatest Christian preacher and teacher of the twentieth century. A medical doctor by training, SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION draws together his professional understanding of the mind with a profound understanding of Christian teaching and the Bible. SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION diagnoses the causes of the ill feeling that many Christians experience. It prescribes the practical care that is needed to lift people's spirits and bring them freedom, power and joy. Spiritual health is possible and this book explains how everyone can grasp it for themselves.

Meet the Author
Born in Cardiff, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a practicing physician until leaving medicine to become the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church.
Minister of Westminster Chapel and co-founder of both InterVarsity Fellowship and the Banner of Truth Trust, this brilliant Welshman was arguably the greatest evangelical preacher of the 20th century.
Best remembered for the power of his sermons in an age of spiritual decline and apathy, Dr Lloyd-Jones exercised his formidable intellect in the service of a thoroughly biblical faith, inspiring his contemporaries to think through the implications of their beliefs for both Church and world.
Dr Lloyd-Jones never tired of calling the Church to revival, to foundational doctrines and to a prayerful zeal for authentic apostolic experience. His rich legacy of recorded and published sermons continues to be used by God to transform lives today.
Customer Reviews For "Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures"Write Your Own Review
This book is just as relevant today as when it was written last century- the reason that so many Christians are just ho-hum and drudging through life is that they are 'spiritually depressed'. Don't be confused- he's not talking about mental health here but spiritual health and expounds several key passages that show this clearly from scripture. Gripping and soul-stirring this is a must for anyone who is desiring to know God more and move beyond a hollow, formal, powerless religion to a vibrant, deep relationship with God.
