Trouble of Mind and the Disease of Melancholy
The Puritans have been described even
by secular observers as “physicians of
the soul.” They understood that both
body and soul need healing from time to
time, and they wisely treated body
problems with physical solutions, and
soul problems with spiritual solutions.
The spiritual malady of depression
(melancholy or “low spiritual frames”)
is wisely dealt with by the Puritans on
both levels, as it can have both
physical and spiritual causes.
Timothy Rogers (1658-1728) himself
suffered deep melancholy and was out of
the pastoral ministry for eight years.
That makes this book unique; Rogers was
able to speak firsthand. Yet he does
not allow his experience to become the
standard for all others; rather, as a
true Puritan, he makes the Word of God
his unchanging standard. He skillfully
provides guidance in regaining a sense
of God’s favor in the midst of adverse
and trying circumstances.
