Re: Williams: CBT is something that helped me....but only after the biochemical/hormonal problems had been corrected. When I would get depressed, my brain would not work enough for me to exercise what therapists had taught me about the power of thoughts. It was hard for me to pray, as well, and that is the time when the prayers of Christian friends and Church prayer groups were critically important for me.

I am curious about your book and it's content...I did read the 5 star review on Amazon...I appreciate your effort, with this book, to help Christian friends, Clergy and Christian Counselors with CBT combined with the is sorely needed.

I will look into this more. But, in my experience, the value of learning about and using CBT is dependent on the chemical imbalances being corrected first. I use CBT all the time now. I was taught using the book "Feeling Good" by Burns. I had lay counselors and Christian counselors over the years, and combining Biblical references with CBT took a lot of work.

Your combining these important elements has to be a plus for people whose Faith is shaken badly once they feel the pain and "abandonment by God"
that come with Depression/Anxiety.

Thank you, Dr. Williams.
