Struggling with God offers an authoritative, theologically informed yet approachable guide to mental health. The authors dispel common myths and misconceptions, and discuss the impact of mental health disorders on individual Christians, Church and society. They address familiar conditions, such as anxiety and depression, and more severe ones, including bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia. The emphasis is on effective and clear communication, yet there is an empathetic spiritual dimension to the writing, with each chapter including biblical reflections relevant to its theme, prayers, questions to facilitate individual/group study, and pointers to further reading. In short, the book presents a Christian vision of spiritual and mental wellbeing through prayerful struggling with God.
