Informative and honest, Finding Quiet validates the experiences of believers struggling with mental illness, provides spiritual and psychological tools for defeating anxiety and depression—and will reassure you that you can thrive again.

In May 2003, prominent philosopher, author, and professor J. P. Moreland awoke in the middle of the night to a severe panic attack. Though often anxious by temperament and upbringing, Moreland had never experienced such an incident before. Thus began an extended battle with debilitating anxiety and depression.

More than a decade later, Moreland continues to manage his mental illness. Yet along the way he's moved from shame and despair to vulnerability and hope. In Finding Quiet, Moreland comes alongside fellow sufferers with encouragement and practical, hard-won advice—a distillation of the very best and most helpful things he discovered about dealing with anxiety and depression from his personal experiences and extensive research.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 20 percent of Americans suffer from mental illness, and Christians are not immune. J. P. Moreland (who studied philosophy under Dallas Willard) explores the spiritual and physical aspects of mental illness, pointing readers toward sound sources of information, treatment, and recovery from both secular and Christian experts.

Finding Quiet is perfect for:

  • Those looking for a trusted starting point in their own research of anxiety/depression.
  • Christians seeking a holistic approach to healing—one that doesn’t shy from scientific knowledge but maintains a theological and biblical framework.
  • Anyone in need of validation and encouragement in their struggle with mental illness.
