Pain and suffering, worry, anxiety, and depression are part and parcel of every human life on earth. Some of us are more burdened than others with these problems, but all of us have to deal with them one way or another at one time or another in our life. But how? There are medical and psychiatric interventions that offer some relief for awhile but they don’t really provide any answers. That is where the role of understanding and faith comes in. Without a coherent philosophy of life and a deep-seated faith in God, the individual is left without hope and often falls into despair. Suicide for such persons can appear desirable. Dr. Drane, tapping into his vast knowledge of human nature and his extraordinary background in the areas of psychology, philosophy, literature, art and religion shows what a powerful role understanding and faith can have in alleviating all kinds of suffering and depression at every conceivable age in an individual’s life. It is his desire that his hope-filled approach will be of benefit to many who are dealing with these issues day to day.
