Publisher's Summary

Help and hope for an unexpected journey.

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
  • Handling guilt and understanding the role of depression in suicides
  • Dealing with questions of faith and meaning
  • Creating a support system
  • Choosing a Christian therapist
  • Trusted resources and websites

    Story
    "Good Primer on a Horrible Situation"
    Would you listen to Finding Your Way after the Suicide of Someone You Love again? Why?

    Dealing with the suicide of someone you love is about as awful a situation as anyone might find themselves in. I read this to help a friend who's son committed suicide. This book really is outstanding at describing all of the manifestations and impacts of the suicide on a persons life and steps to walk through it. These are much broader than you might imagine. It is written from a Christian perspective, but the authors are not too heavy handed about it. I am an atheist, and mostly it was fine. I recommend the book to anyone with the misfortune of finding themselves or someone they care about in this situation. If you do, my heart goes out to you.
