Dr. Welch holds a Ph.D in counseling (neuropsychology) from the University of Utah, but has devoted his career to helping people through biblical counseling. In an age when many Christians are immediately turning to secular sources for help with things like depression,  Dr. Welch demonstrates how God – through the Bible – counsels people struggling with these kinds of issues.  In the introduction, he explains his hope for this book: “If you are depressed, the chapters that follow are intended to be brief and, at times, provocative. If you want to help someone who is depressed, the chapters are intended to give you direction and to be used as actual readings you can share with the depressed person. My hope is that the book will encourage partnerships between depressed people and those who love them.”
