I was deeply honored to be interviewed recently on over a half dozen radio programs nationwide regarding the current state of violence and political unrest in the United States, from my perspective as a neuropsychologist and mental health provider. While the questions asked in each interview were varied, basically, each radio show host wanted to know how do we make sense of the violence in America, and what do we do about it?
Despite the tragic recent events in America, I maintain that we can still have hope.
Dear Dr. B,
I’m a man in my 60’s. Depression has been my Goliath as long as I can remember. I am a believer that has a fairly good grasp on Gods word. Yet I can’t muster the joy and happiness that the Word says is mine. I’m reading your book, “Hope Prevails: Insights From a Doctor’s Personal Journey Through Depression” and have the companion “Hope Prevails Bible Study.” At times, I’m out of hope. A saying I learned as a professional airline pilot describing a crash site was, “The place where the pilots ran out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas all at the same time.” I’ve been close to that place more times than I can count. Can I realistically shed this Goliath in my life?
Ready for Joy
If you’ve read any of my story shared on this site, or in my book, “Hope Prevails: Insights From a Doctor’s Personal Journey Through Depression,” then you know how much importance I place on standing on God’s word to traverse this landscape we call life.

That’s why I’m delighted to introduce you to my friend, Elisa Pulliam, author of “Unblinded Faith: Gaining Spiritual Insight Through Believing God’s Word.” I know you’ll enjoy reading as Elisa shares about the difference God’s promises make in our life.
