Format: Paperback
Gritty, graceful and down-right great! This work presents a collection of strategies for responding to individuals at-risk of suicide and those families affected by suicide. This book is an essential resource for ministers to help identify the warning signs of suicide and give steps for intervention and prevention, with a powerful weave of narrative, biblical and theoretical good practice.

It's a heartfelt pastoral response valuably filled with strategies for congregational care along the continuum of suicidal behaviour. The author ambitiously and effectively offers the reader that all ministerial support and personal compassion is a redemptive work. This is an essential and unique contribution for those serving individuals in this painful and complex area of the human condition.
