Zondervan Finding Your Way after the Suicide of Someone You Love - eBook

Do real Christians commit suicide? Yes, they do. And for those left behind, the journey following such a tragedy is unbearably painful. Finding Your Way after the Suicide of Someone You Love is a compassionate and practical guide that addresses the intensely personal issues of survivors of suicide (SOS). This gentle and faith-affirming resource helps survivors know what to expect, especially during the first year following a suicide. It includes personal stories of survivors and suggestions on how to move beyond survival to live life again. Designed for use by individuals, couples, and SOS groups, this book offers help for parents, siblings, friends, and extended families, as well as practical guidelines for pastors, Christian counselors, and other church leaders.

Topics include:

  • What to do in the immediate aftermath of a suicide

  • Dealing with questions of faith and meaning
  • Creating a support system
  • Choosing a Christian therapist

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.
