Dr Kheriarty grounds the reader upfront about the somatic, social, and serious psychological cause and effects of depression. Never does he allude to a "just pray" mode of healing, and yet, with a courage so seldom seen in his discipline of medicine, he embraces, guides, and exhorts the critically placed fulcrum of spiritual maturity and efficacy. This book opens up possibilities, especially for those who serve the wounded. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can take on a new depth of intervention by integration of spirituality. Dr Kheriarty praises Dr Beck et al alongside St Augustine and St Therese de Liseaux. This volume expands the heart and mind of all who read it.

I was skeptical when I bought this audiobook on depression. But I was so suprised by the depth of the knowledge in both psychiatry and traditional Catholicism when I started the book. I am a catholic physician who has some experience with the topic of depression, after hearing this book, my understanding of both the disease and treatment through the great spiritual directors of the past has increased tremendously! I highly recommend it to all catholics who wants to understand depression better.

I really like the chapter on hope. There was meaty pertinent discussion around the topic, and not like I’ve found in other psychology self helps on happiness.This is a well written book with particularly useful reflections on how from a Catholic perspective one can live and get past depression, with reference to great texts/speeches from Pope John Paul II and some of the saints lives. There are also more medicalised chapters on therapy, depression and anxiety. Overall I’ve found this very helpful and will return again to many of the spiritual chapters.
