Monica Coleman: Not Alone
As a magna-cum-laude Harvard grad, tenured professor, in-demand preacher, and author of popular as well as academic books and blogs, Monica A. Coleman is what most people would call “a success.” Behind her impressive achievements, however, is a story that many of her friends and colleagues knew nothing about—her ongoing struggle with severe depression.
In Not Alone, she opens up her life to offer the hard-won wisdom that she’s obtained as she’s wrestled with God and depression. While avoiding easy answers, she shares the struggles she has faced, in order to give hope to those who deal with similar challenges, so that they will be better equipped to explore and reflect on their own experiences and faith. Above all, she writes to let them know that they are not alone.
