Bridge, William, A Lifting Up for the Downcast (Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust). 30951
"These thirteen sermons on Psalm 42:11, preached at Stepney, London, in the year 1648 are the work of a true physician of souls. In dealing with believers suffering from spiritual depression, Bridge manifests great insight into the causes of the saints' discouragements, such as, great sins, weak grace, failure in duties, want of assurance, temptation, desertion, and affliction. A correct diagnosis is more than half the cure but Bridge does not leave his readers there. He gives directions for applying the remedy. For example, in dealing with great sins' he says, "If you would be truly humbled and not be discouraged; not be discouraged and yet be bumbled; then beat and the drive up up all your sin in your unbelief, and lay the stress and weight of all your sorrow upon that sin.'
"The general causes of spiritual depression are the same in every age. Downcast Christians of the twentieth century can find help here as surely as did past generations." -- Publisher's Annotation
"Here is true help for those suffering from spiritual depression. Better than a room filled with psychologists." -- GCB. A Christian classic. ( )
