A Gentle Touch: Christians and Mental Illness

Author(s): John Ting

Mental Health

Mental illness is not necessarily something spiritual that can be prayed away, but often is something pathological that may benefit from medical and psychological intervention. The author, who has himself experienced clinical depression, explains how we can care for and help those who are mentally unwell — with compassion and gentleness. This book also contains many biblical examples and real-life testimonies that would be a helpful resource to patients and caregivers, friends and family in understanding mental illness.

A Gentle Touch brings a holistic perspective, taking into consideration the different dimensions of being human and how these are all rooted in the reality of God. It is written with deep pastoral empathy and a living and profound faith. Both sufferers and those who help them will find in this book comforting insights and hopeful pointers. I hope that this book will be widely read as it helps dispel many myths about mental illness, raises awareness, and offers a realistic and most helpful perspective. – Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon, The Methodist Church in Singapore
