Mental illness. It’s a scourge of our modern society. Everywhere it goes, mental illness leaves a trail of hopelessness, shame and brokenness in its wake.
But brokenness isn’t the end of the story.
In the ancient Japanese tradition of Kintsukuroi, things that were broken became things of beauty, as seams of gold decorated the former defects.
With more than twenty years of medical training, clinical practice and personal experience with mental illness, Dr C. Edward Pitt weaves a powerful narrative, which educates and empowers.
Applying the timeless principles of the Bible and the best of modern science, Kintsukuroi Christians offers a road map to recovery and skills to enhance psychological health, helping to transform mental brokenness into a thing of beauty.
