Publisher's Description

In 1994 William Ritter's adult son committed suicide, sending Ritter and his family on a journey no family wants to take. Part of Ritter's own process of healing the loss of his son was to preach about it occasionally from the pulpit. This book is a collection of the sermons he preached, the first one just three weeks after his son's death, and the final one nine years later. Through them, we get a glimpse of a father and a family struggling honestly with their pain and gradually—over the years—coming to grips with their loss. Take the Dimness of My Soul Away will be a welcome companion to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide, as well as to pastors and counselors who work with those who are grieving. Ritter offers no easy solutions, no rosy pictures, and no silver linings, but speaks honestly instead about the difficult emotions and confusion of this kind of loss, and ultimately, about a sense of hopefulness for the survivors of suicide. William Ritter is the senior pastor of a large United Methodist church in Birmingham, Michigan. Since the suicide of his son he has counseled many others, and spoken to groups of people who have all survived this kind of loss.

    This book touches the very heart of a parent that has lost a child to suicide. I have heard Rev. Ritter speak and he has penned the same emotional truths in this manuscript. Moving and very thought provoking and comforting. I have found more answers and comfort in this short book than in any other that I have read since my daughters death.

    William Ritter writes from his own shattered heart about the pain and agony survivors cope with after a suicide, when one tries to make sense out of the senselessness; when prayers seem to have gone unanswered. In these pages you'll find comfort, in that he endured it and survived, and encouragement, in that he has been able to see God's love and goodness, even in this.
