There are a lot of articles about suicide and depression surfacing at the moment due to the suicide of the comedian Robin Williams. Last month I was at the Churchill Exhibition at Blenheim Palace – he also struggled with depression, calling it ‘The Black Dog’. And one of my friends on face book today referred to her own struggles with this particular animal but stating how she had him tied up and muzzled at the moment. Well there are a lot of Christians out there who struggle with depression, some have come through, some haven’t. Here are a few books to take a look at that may be helpful to sufferers, friends and family.
