In The Case and Cure of a Deserted Soul, Joseph Symonds (d.1652) explores the nature, causes, and treatment of spiritual depression—a state that arises when God seems to hide his face, leaving the Christian to walk alone in a “dark night of the soul.” Every aspect of this condition is examined with a surgeon’s precision, a philosopher’s insight, and the Word of God’s wisdom on how to gain a firmer footing and emerge from this melancholy hour with renewed strength and vivacity.

J.I. Packer has labelled The Case and Cure of a Deserted Soul as the definitive book for the diagnosis and treatment of spiritual depression. Peter Lewis says the book "shows a mind and heart replete with the best qualities of Puritan learning and devotion."

Previously out-of-print, this classic treatise has been carefully prepared for the benefit and enjoyment of a new generation of Christian readers. Includes a foreword by Dr. James A. Fain III. Also available in paperback.

The e-book edition includes over 700 embedded Scripture references in the ESV. Just click the link to the Scripture reference; no internet connection is needed!
