About the book:
This deeply compassionate, shame-free guide for Christians battling severe depression and suicidal thoughts offers a clear, hopeful road map to a rich, vibrant life in Christ.
Countless Christians battle severe, crippling mental health issues. As they toil under the crushing weight of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts, a well-meaning Church says, Just choose joy. Pray and read your Bible more. But for many, no amount of prayer or Bible study erases the pain. So they’re left with searing shame and the unspoken belief that God has abandoned them.
In I Love Jesus, but I Want to Die, author and experienced ministry leader Sarah J. Robinson offers fresh perspective to the Church and life-giving hope for those who live with mental illness. With unflinching honesty, Robinson shares proven tools and simple practices that empower readers to fight for wholeness, giving them the confidence that they are not alone in their suffering and they are worth whatever it takes to get well.
Beautifully written by a fellow sufferer, I Love Jesus, but I Want to Die leads readers on a journey toward something they thought impossible: a rich vibrant life in Christ, in spite of severe depression and suicidal thoughts.
As someone who has struggled with depression for so long, I can’t recommend this book enough. We live in a society where mental illness isn’t talked about. This book makes us take a look at it. If you or someone you love struggles with depression I would recommend reading this!
