Co-Director, Mental Health and Pastoral Care Institute, Anglican Deaconess Ministries, Sydney, Australia
Chris "gets" mental illness. He has been in the dark places and openly shares his personal experience. We hear of the help that can be gained from medical and psychological treatments and the difference that a supportive community can make. But with a pastor’s heart, Chris’ main aim is to speak biblical truth into this difficult context—to gently correct false patterns of thinking and feeling, and above all, to point the reader to the joy and refreshment that is found in knowing that our acceptance, security and hope depend upon God’s unchanging love, not the quality of our mental health.
