With "The Drug, the Soul, and God", John-Mark Miravalle examines the stance of the Catholic Church regarding the prescription and consumption of antidepressants. After a careful investigation of Catholic moral theology and philosophy, Miravalle argues that treating depression with medication alone fails to address the underlying causes of depression and does not facilitate the cognitive, interpersonal, and environmental changes necessary for a patient's long-term health. In addition, he suggests that such medication may deprive sufferers of providential opportunities for personal and communal conversion and sanctification. This controversial volume will engage theologians and medical professionals alike.
