Finding Hope in the Age of Melancholy
David S. Awbrey (au)
In mid-life, Awbrey was celebrating the accomplishment of all his worldly dreams -- to become editor of a major Midwestern paper -- when suddenly & without warning he plummeted into a hellish depression. Surveying a life he saw for the first time as shallow, materialistic, selfish, & spiritually impoverished, he could not stop his slide to the bottom. He retreated into solitude to restart his life by going back to school to study what depression, or melancholy as it was called, has meant to other people. What he learned is what this book is all about. He analyzed the loss of our spiritual & cultural riches. It is melancholy that led him & can lead us back to religious faith. In connecting with God, we step out of our isolation & connect with the larger community of our fellow humans.
