Dr. Hodges, a family physician and licensed marital and family therapist, has written a book designed to give medical and Biblical insight on a growing problem in our society and in our churches. Depression and bipolar disorder are two of the most common diagnoses in medicine today. Good Mood, Bad Mood examines whether it is an epidemic or if we have simply changed how we label depression. While medication is now the commonly accepted way to deal with pain and sadness, its promise has not been fulfilled. Dr. Charles Hodges shows us the importance of sadness, considers the help available, and directs us to the hope that God gives in His Word.
Elyse Fitzpatrick, author, speaker, and counsellor, writes, "Dr. Hodges has given the church an important resource in Good Mood, Bad Mood. With the scientific acumen of a physician and the loving concern of a brother in Christ, Dr. Hodges cuts through the morass of solutions for sadness, depression, mania or bipolar disorders. Written for the layperson but detailed enough for the physician or counsellor, this book is for who struggles with troubling moods and for those who help them."
