Videos and mp3 messages on Depression and The Christian

Dr. David P Murray produced a series of 6 video messages on "Depression and The Christian" which I found to be most enlightening, encouraging and balance in its view. I was personally greatly helped by his messages on this series. These video messages will enable Christians who are suffering from depression to understand a little about the pain and suffering God is allowing them to go through in depression. It will gives some hope and guides on how to get better. These video messages will also help to educate the family, friends, and church to understand a little about the pains and sufferings someone with depression has to go through, the possible causes and cures, and how best to relate to such a sufferer so as to be of maximum benefit and help to him/her and not cause more hurt.

These messages are also available in .mp3 and .pdf formats. They are free for download on the website of Sermon Audio. I highly recommend them. I have reproduced the .pdf message into my blog under "Depression and The Christian".

The 6 lectures are on:

  1. The Crisis
  2. The Complexity
  3. The Condition
  4. The Causes
  5. The Cures
  6. The Carer
Dr David P Murray served as the Pastor of Lochcarron Free Church of Scotland from 1995 to 2000, and then of Stornoway Free Church of Scotland (continuing) from 2000 to 2007. In August 2007 he accepted a call to be the Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
