Did you know Charles Spurgeon, one of history’s greatest preachers, suffered from what he called “the minister’s fainting fits.” Today, we just call it depression. On this episode of the Great Stories Podcast, Charles Morris talks with pastor Zack Eswine, who is also the author of a book called Spurgeon’s Sorrows. Charles and Zack have both struggled with depression at various times in their own lives. Listen in as they discuss realistic hope for Christians going through dark times.
