Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because the title of this book has the word “depression” in it that it doesn’t relate to you. Martyn Lloyd-Jones identifies numerous sources of spiritual discouragement, and encourages us to counteract those causes by preaching the truth to ourselves. His writing is a wonderful mixture of lofty prose, common sense, and practical insights. If you’ve experienced spiritual discouragement of any degree, this book is heartening and applicable.

*note added a year later*
The other day I was reading through the notes that I took while reading this book, and I realized that the concepts I gleaned from it have stuck with me amazingly well. Of the Christian living books I have read, this one has really impacted me long term. I remember that when I was in the process of reading it, at times it felt like I was hacking my way through the book, simply because of the amount of material it contained. Upon reflection, however, it was well worth the effort. Highly recommended.
