A lovely woman named Diana Gruver reached out to me three years ago. She was writing a book about Christians and their struggle with depression in the hopes that their stories would encourage other Christians struggling with depression. Three years ago she asked if I would help launch this book into the world, and I said yes. Well the day has come, and her wonderful book is being released into the world today: Companions in the Darkness: Seven Saints Who Struggled with Depression and Doubt.
To celebrate, I thought It would be fun to offer a giveaway! More on that below, but first let me tell you a little bit about this book, and why I think it is worth the purchase and read.
I'm aware that most Christians walk through seasons of darkness and doubt in their lives. Those seasons might not be clinically labelled depression, but I think we can all agree that when we walk through dark valleys, we want companions that will lovingly walk alongside us. This book offers some of those companions. While there is nothing that can replace in-person fellowship, sometimes it's helpful to know that others have struggled similarly to us.
What If those people were also well known heroes of the faith as well? That's what drew me into reading this book. I didn't know that Martin Luther and Charles Spurgeon (well known Christians!) struggled with depression. While I'm not currently struggling with depression or doubt, the stories that Diana Gruver shares about them in this book bolstered my faith. I hope they will bolster your faith as well.
I believe this book will be a great comfort to many struggling through seasons of darkness, depression, and doubt, which is why I am very honored to share about it and offer this giveaway!
