Best Spirituality Book for Depression: The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity by William P. Young
If you haven’t yet read The Shack, you’re not in good company. Okay, maybe your company is fine, but it’s not very sizeable. The Shack is a well-loved book, on the way to becoming a spiritual classic, for good reason: it’s beautiful. It’s beloved by Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, New Agers and many people in-between and outside of these categories. Its central message: Drop your damned judgment. God is bigger (and cooler) than you think. He may even enjoy heavy metal music.
Can’t recommend this book more highly, though it doesn’t specifically discuss depression.
