Devout: A Memoir of Doubt

Regular price $27.99
"In this revelatory memoir seeking to bridge the gap between science and spirituality, Anna Gazmarian tells the story of how her Evangelical upbringing in North Carolina, provided an inadequate framework to understand the mental health diagnosis she received, and the work she had to do to find proper medical treatment while also maintaining her faith. When Anna is diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2011, she s faced with a conundrum: while the diagnosis provides clarity about her manic and depressive episodes, growing up in an Evangelical community means that her diagnosis is regarded as an affliction of the spirit rather than a medical condition. Over ten years, we follow Anna on her journey to reframe her understanding of mental health to expand the limits of what her religious faith can offer."--Provided by publisher.
