Description: Fr. Rolheiser offers hope and a new way of understanding death by suicide. Just as with certain kinds of cancer, the disease of emotional depression can sometimes be untreatable, unstoppable, and no intervention by anyone or anything can halt its advance - it eventually kills the person and there is nothing anyone can do. Fr Rolheiser explores topics such as, Removing the Taboo; Despair as Weakness rather than Sin; Reclaiming the Memory of our Loved One; The Pain of the Ones Left Behind.

“Unique insights on the nature of suicide, its devastating effects, and God’s embracing love throughout. Fr. Ron is exactly who I would have wanted at my side when my daughter died.”
— Marjorie Antus, author of My Daughter, Her Suicide, and God: A Memoir of Hope

“Don’t let the size of this book fool you into thinking it doesn’t have much to say about suicide. Each page—each sentence—is rich in insight, wisdom, compassion, and most of all, comfort. Ronald Rolheiser gently dismantles the age-old myths and taboos associated with suicide, and gives brokenhearted survivors of suicide loss genuine reasons for hope.”
— Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California
