A Lifting Up for the Downcast (Puritan Paperbacks)

A Lifting Up for the Downcast (Puritan Paperbacks) - William Bridge This book contains 13 sermons based on Psalm 42: 11 from the year 1648. These sermons address many aspects of spiritual discouragement and depression in the life of a believer. Great sins, weak grace, failure in duties, want of assurance, temptation, desertion, affliction -- all these are addressed and examined in light of scripture. There is indeed a lifting up for the downcast in these lectures.I found it interesting that the general causes of spiritual depression are really the same in every age, and as such downcast Christians can find help now just as past generations did.
