Product Description

This uniquely designed resource for those left behind after a suicide. Provides encouraging, practical help and hope. Also includes features designed for SOS support groups, pastors, Christian counselors, and church leaders with the goal of helping the church function more fully as the healing community it could be for the survivors of suicide in its midst.

Do real Christians commit suicide? Yes, they do. And for those left behind, the journey following such a tragedy is unbearably painful. This unique guidebook points the way through and beyond the lonely wilderness and addresses head-on the intensely personal issues of survivors of suicide. Questions of faith are examined honestly, with a focus on what Gods Word has to say about suicide. The book explores the character of God, affirming his love, from which nothing can separate a believer. The book helps survivors know what to expect, especially during the first year following the suicide. It includes many personal stories of survivors, along with their suggestions on how to get beyond survival to life again. It is designed for use by individuals, couples and the growing number of SOS support groups nationwide. This gentle resource offers help for friends, siblings, and extended family, as well as practical guidelines and suggestions for pastors, Christians counselors, and other church leaders.

    A friend gave me this book after I lost my brother to suicide and it was very helpful. Difficult to read at times only because of my own grief. Encouraging, true stories from real people who are hurting just as much as I was.

    THE best book I have found for those who survive the loss of a loved one by suicide. It is both practical and encouraging. I keep several on hand to give away. I send them to people who don't know me but have a need. The best thing we can do to comfort anyone is to point them to Jesus and His Comforter.

    Very helpful!! Very smart, easy to read book.I felt like I related to every person in the book. Survivors of suicide suffer such a unique pain, hard to explain to others.I loved all the scripture references too.
