A Christian Scholar Talks Frankly about His Serious Bout with Depression

Post Author: Bill Pratt

Michael Patton, over at the Parchment and Pen blog, recently wrote a powerful  post about his struggle with depression.  I was deeply moved when I read his post, as he described what it has been like for him over the last couple months.  In the past, I may have dismissed people’s struggles with depression somewhat, thinking they could just will themselves out of it.  After hearing Michael describe his experience, I need to rethink that position.

Make sure you also read the many comments under his post, as they are truly insightful and encouraging to all those who suffer from this debilitating  condition.  Please pray for Michael.
