Besides traditional therapy for clinical anxiety and depression, this book presents alternative modalities of spiritual and holistic nature. Millions live disabling lives not fully understanding or appreciating the healing grace of God. Now, from a pastor's view who has been there, is this hopeful insight into the possibility of actual recovery, not just improvement, from mental illness. Building on cognitive therapies, "New Day Rising" presents cognitive/spiritual opportunities within a religious context for those who are religious. This is a concerted effort of the patient's will toward betterment and ultimate wholeness. Holistic methods are discussed along with the spiritual and cognitive methods. For many, this is good news. Often times a person is left to themselves with bottles of prescriptions and a quick counseling session. Continuity is found with the holistic and spiritual approach. The author shares his own struggles and triumphs in exile to returning home (to one's true self). Above it all is the realization that there is hope when all seems hopeless.
