The Christian gospel can speak hope into mental health issues and addictions.

A New Day is the forthcoming second book from Emma Scrivener, bestselling author of A New Name: grace and healing for anorexia.
Can I break free from my eating disorder?
Why do I struggle so much with anxiety?
Where can I go with my shame and despair?
'I'm controlling and insecure and desperate to prove my own worth,' admits Emma Scrivener. 'I'm a Christian, but I don't always feel like it.'

There are lots of how-to books out there. In terms of the practicalities of recovery, they're brilliant. What they don't address is the spiritual dimension. However, even when writing about 'spiritual recovery', the author confesses that it's tempting to offer some sort of programme or strategy.

'But I don't think I've got one,' she says. What she does offer are practical suggestions for how to apply gospel truths to practical circumstances.

With honesty, examples from real life (including her own), Emma connects with her reader. She shows how the gospel can speak to every heart and every addiction, equipping readers with confidence in Christ's sufficiency and the power of his Word and Spirit to bring change where change seems impossible.

Emma Scrivener was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, studied at Oxford University and worked in London. She speaks at national events, counsels those with self-harm issues and blogs at A New Name. Her first book, also A New Name, was shortlisted for a national award. Emma and Glen, an evangelist, live with their young daughter Ruby in Eastbourne, UK.
