Inhaltsangabe: Too Late in the Afternoon is the engaging tale of an intelligent, lonely, divorced middle-aged man (Mitch) living through a serious depression that begins when he retires to a city (Minneapolis) that he has not lived in for 40 years.
The story follows Mitch for two years as he seeks help for his depression through medical, psychological and spiritual paths. The insights which Mitch gains about his own fluctuating moods, and the vivid descriptions of what life is like for a depressed person, present some of the most memorable passages.
I can enthusiastically commend this book to those suffering from depression - as well as those who love and care for them. It is a reflective, thoughtful, and credible therapeutic story.
Philip K. Olson, M.D. (retired)
Too Late In The Afternoon is a compelling story that takes you on Mitch Jasper's healing journey through the struggles of depression. Even though Mitch has been successful in many ways, in his mid-fifties he comes face to face with his past and how it is affecting his "present." This journey incorporates more than the clinical prescriptions such as counseling, medications, taking personal responsibility, self-care, making amends, and "getting and having a life."
While these prescriptions are crucial, Too Late In The Afternoon will point you to the deeper themes of confession, relational friendships, forgiveness, reconciliation, grace, mercy and transparency....themes that reflect and embody the life we are called to live....themes that have the power to bring us back into alignment, healing and true living. At most, this is a wonderful and powerful story that reveals the timeless themes of salvation and redemption. This book is a must-read for those who have encountered or are dealing with depression in any way....personal, family, friend or professional.

Too Late in the Afternoon dramatically depicts the transforming power of friendships. Mitch Jasper is not capable of escaping his depression on his own, so God brings about his transformation through other people - Dave Logan, Daniel, Mitch's family, and others.
"Unforgiveness" is a poison contributing to Mitch's depression. Through essential people brought into Mitch's life, God shows him the power of forgiveness and the freedom it brings. Once Mitch forgives and is forgiven, he is able to bless others, even while he is still wounded. This book is a great inspiration for anyone who has been hurt deeply and has had a hard time forgiving.
Finally, I appreciate how salvation is shown as a process. God pursues us and calls us to Himself, but He gives us time to respond to Him.
