GUEST POST FOR PRESBYTERIAN OUTLOOK
Posted on January 19, 2021 by Jenn Zatopek
I am thrilled to share my latest essay with you now, a book review of The Long Night, a memoir on depression recovery by first-time author and pastor Jessica Kantrowitz. Given the constant barrage of stress we all face amid surviving a global pandemic, the fallout of white supremacy, and more, I can, without any doubts, highly recommend this book. It is both a literary memoir and a thoughtful resource for persons of faith struggling with depression.
Pastor and first-time author Jessica Kantrowitz has written a soulful manual for surviving depression and chronic illness. I wish this were required reading for all to help dispel the terrible myths about depression that poison our beloved community. Her artful memoir “The Long Night” tackles a difficult subject with warmth and deep compassion, filling a great need for the lost and despairing among us. . .
