Pastors need more and better resources on a Christian understanding of depression. Pr. Peperkorn is refreshingly open and transparent about his struggle. His compelling book is enhanced by seeing and hearing Pr. Peperkorn share the same personal accounts from another perspective. The video humanizes and personalizes and informative and helpful book.
Buy the DVD to share in a small Adult Bible class setting or to have on loan for special cases of pastoral care. Buy copies of the WRHC book to have on hand to help the depressed and their loved ones better understand the challenge they face and the hope that is in Christ.
