Grieving a Suicide
A Loved One's Search for Comfort, Answers and Hope
Suicide claims a million lives a year. Each one leaves behind survivors – shattered, grieving, angry, guilty and often despairing.
Al Hsu is one such survivor. On an ordinary Thursday morning, he answered the phone and discovered that his father had taken his own life. For months and even years afterwards, he wrestled with intense emotional and spiritual questions. There were no easy answers. But he drew deeply from the resources of his Christian faith and the God who offers comfort and hope.
Whether you have lost a loved one to suicide or provide pastoral care to survivors, this book will be an essential companion on your journey.
This revised and expanded edition includes helpful information for churches and a useful study guide.
