If you or a loved one are suffering from mental illness (such as depression, anxiety, panic disorder, OCD or even psychosis), this book will help guide you to achieve genuine healing. It is also a helpful tool for therapists, clergy and all seekers who wish to understand the roots of mental illness and their relationship with spirituality. It was written by a man who spent nearly 35 years searching for the truth that heals. His spiritual journey included battling various mental conditions, including panic attacks, clinical depression and psychosis, that involved multiple descents into the depths of fear and despair. These battles often ended in miraculous healing events which proved to him that God exists, Jesus lives, and there is no death.
Based on the author’s research and personal experience, there are two levels of understanding that are needed for deep healing from mental illness (which is spiritual illness). The first level is an understanding of the root trauma that caused the illness. The book elucidates how a lack of awareness of such trauma represents a serious impediment to healing and perpetuates abuse from generation to generation. The process of healing through the first level of understanding, assisted by divine grace, reconnects us with our innate divinity and self-love. Self-compassion (as distinct from self-pity) is crucial during this phase of healing. This prepares us for the second level of understanding, which entails a realization of our true identity and power. The book helps us recognize that we are divinely loving and powerful creative beings. We are spiritual beings having a human experience, and guilt is a figment of the ego. Mental illness is not possible in the presence of this complete self-acceptance, which is the hallmark of psycho-spiritual health.

The Gospel is the good news about who Jesus is, what He did, and why He did it. What He did was so extraordinary, and its impact so enormous, that it will effect everything for all time. This book describes the richness of the Gospel, and outlines what the Gospel does when believed, for the Gospel believed is the power of God unleashed in one’s life.
This book explores exactly what the Gospel is – what is meant by this Good News. It then goes on to explore what the Gospel does, for in his introduction to the book of Romans, Paul the apostle tells us that, “the Gospel is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes”. As you read you’ll discover why the Gospel is timelessly and universally applicable, how it saves, and what the innumerable benefits of that salvation are. The Gospel’s greatness lies in the simple fact that it is the continuous application of that which the Lord accomplished through the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. “Why the Gospel is the Best News Ever!” takes time to celebrate the rich, multi-faceted, eternal beauty of who Jesus is, and of what He has done!
