Review by Library Journal Reviews

Having survived a sexually and emotionally abusive childhood, Stout became a successful Presbyterian minister, athlete, husband, and father until bipolar disorder led him to a suicide attempt and hospitalization. Here, he describes his long and ongoing struggle with the disease, complicated by problems encountered by many patients battles with insurance companies, the adverse side effects of drugs, and uncomprehending acquaintances. Other titles, notably E. Fuller Torrey's Surviving Manic Depression, are more comprehensive in their discussion of the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of bipolar disorder, and Kaye Redfield Jamison's memoir, An Unquiet Mind, is better written. Stout's book, however, will be helpful to Christians confronting mental illness directly or indirectly. He includes specific recommendations for congregations interested in serving the mentally ill. For church and seminary libraries as well as public libraries serving Christian populations. Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
