“DEPRESSION: My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?”: a much needed and frank discussion on the darkness plaguing Christians everywhere. “DEPRESSION: My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?” is the creation of published author, Robert Canada. Bob has been involved in ministry for over twenty years as a Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, and Senior Pastor. He began his secular career in the offshore oil industry in 1977 before accepting Christ as his Savior in 1986. He began his ministry in 1989 by teaching adult discipleship classes. He later took over as Mission’s Director for his local church. In 1996, he accepted the position as Youth Pastor, later stepping into his first position as Associate Pastor. Today, he continues his work in the ministry and offshore oil industry. His job has taken him to Africa, Europe, Middle East, and South America, which has given him the opportunity to share Christ with those from other nations and walks of faith.

“There is a stigma attached to being a Christian suffering from depression because we believe this is not supposed to happen to real Christians. After all, aren’t we to be content in all things? We are to put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. How do we share our condition with other Christians who are void of understanding?” --Robert Canada

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Robert Canada’s new book shares that the National Institute of Mental Health estimates sixteen million adults in the United States suffer from some form of depression. The World Health Organization estimates 350 million people in the world suffer from depression. Over thirty thousand suicides take place in America each year with depression a contributing factor in sixty percent of those causes. The suicide epidemic has become the fourth leading cause of death among adults ages eighteen to sixty-five. Unfortunately, this topic is overlooked at the pulpit far too often.

There are millions of Christians within the 350 million suffering from depression. These brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering from something they cannot control. They wake each morning to another day of dread, crying out to God for relief with none in sight. They are lost in a dark, never ending tunnel. These faithful are alone in their fight to drive this beast out of their lives. There are millions fighting this battle each day who are searching for the light at the end of the tunnel. The time has come to talk about depression in Christianity.
