Some Factors in Elijah’s Depression [Guest Post: Pt. 1 of 3]

by Paul Tautges | October 22, 2012 7:37 am

Depression is a malady of the human experience—one of a multitude of ways fallen creatures wrestle through living in a fallen world. Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday our blog posts are gleaned from my friend Dr. Bob Somerville of the Master’s College. The material provided here was first presented in a workshop at the annual conference of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.

Drawn from the Scriptures, particularly a biblical case study of Elijah in the book of 1 Kings, our guest will illustrate how a severe cause of depression may come about, explain how God ministered to His servant Elijah in his deep valley, and give us some suggested application projects for ourselves or those whom we counsel.

Part 1: How Do You Develop A Severe Case of Depression?

Tomorrow, in Part 2, Bob will explain how God ministered to Elijah in his time of despair. You can order the audio disc from this workshop, “What to Do when the Counselor Wakes Up Depressed” from Sound Word[1].
