Best Spirituality Book for Depression: What God Wants: A Compelling Answer to Humanity’s Biggest Question by Neale Donald Walsch
What God Wants starts with an overview of what the major world religions teach that God wants from us (love, loyalty, prayer, etc.). Walsch then points out that all of these ideas are based on a single underlying idea, namely: God is separate from us.
This is untrue; “God is life, and life is God.” Therefore, God is without nothing, needs nothing.
Conclusion: What God wants from us is, in a word, nothing. However, we may want to use God in pursuit of our goals for this life.
Can this book help me overcome depression?
Kind of? A little, maybe.
The books on my Best Recommended Channeled Books for Depression list that are found in the first section, also titled Best Channeled Books for Depression, are those that I have read and that I can personally vouch for. The other books on this list, under the Other Recommended Channeled Books for Depression heading, are those that I haven’t read yet but that have achieved some degree of recognition and appreciation, or I have read and liked but don’t necessarily help with depression. (In other words, they’re the books that don’t suck.)
This is one of those books.
I include these along with my personal favorites for depression in order to offer a comprehensive list of the channeled book for the “spiritual travelers” out there—people who, like me, are always on the lookout for their next inspiring spiritual read.
Does it address depression specifically? What does it say that can help?
No, it doesn’t. But it talks about law of attraction/creation/manifestation principles, which can be very empowering.
To what degree do you think it can help me overcome depression?
Depression effectiveness rating: 2 on a scale of 1-10

Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
