Grieving A Suicide – A loved one’s search for comfort, answers and hope -Albert Y Hsu

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.

Grieving A Suicide – A loved one’s search for comfort, answers and hope -Albert Y Hsu

Suicide is one of the most serious public health crises of modern times, claiming over one million lives worldwide every year.

Those who have lost a loved one to suicide experience tremendous shock and trauma, with a confusing mixture of emotions: anger, guilt, grief and despair. Suicide also raises heartrending questions: Why did this happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? Many also wonder if those who chose suicide are doomed to an eternity separated from God and loved ones. Some may even start to ask whether life is worth living at all.

After his father’s death by suicide, Albert Hsu wrestled with the intense emotional and spiritual questions surrounding suicide. While acknowledging that there are no easy answers, Hsu draws on the resources of the Christian faith to point suicide survivors to the God who offers comfort in our grief and hope for the future.

If you have lost a loved one to suicide or provide pastoral care to those left behind, this book is an essential companion for the journey towards healing.
