Depression Is Never “Out of Print”!
I have some sad news.
Mark Sutton and I have written two books on depression. The second book, “Hope Again: A 30 Day Plan for Conquering Depression” was released in September, 2014. Now, we have discovered, that book is no longer in print.
When Mark and I discovered this fact back in late spring, I was disappointed and we decided that the end had come for our depression book. The very next day, I received an email from a person who claimed the book “saved her life”. In desperation, she reached out in prayer and God led her to our book. The 30 day program led her away from her decision to end her life! And, this person was from South Africa!
It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that something that Mark and I wrote based on our painful experiences with depression could be used by God to change the life of someone else! But, this is how God works. As soon as I read the email, I called Mark and we bent every effort at that point to putting out a third book as soon as possible.
And, we continue to get weekly orders for our LifeFilter cards from our website conqueringdepression.com!
So, now for some good news.
This past Monday, Mark and I finished the final layout for a third edition of our depression book. The new title is “Hope Again: A Lifetime Plan for Conquering Depression”. We will be releasing this book under out own company, LifeFilters, LLC with the imprint “Hope Again Books”. Our plan is for the book to be available in print and ebook format by the end of September.
This new edition contains about 40% new material with updates on the medical aspect of depression as well as new stores and illustrations based on our life experiences over the past five years. I am particularly excited about two updated chapters on TRUTH, a topic we sorely need to discuss in today’s culture.
I will keep my readers posted on the release of this book and for a taste of what to expect, here is the final version of the book cover:
