Year: 1994 Source: Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v.24, no.4, (Winter 1994), p.413-414 SIEC No: 19940789

This review outlines book content & notes it grew out of a series of conferences. Contributors include psychiatrists, theologians, psychologists, pastoral counsellors, rabbis, pastors, ethicists, & chaplains. The book, recommended as a “definate read,” takes a pragmatic approach in assisting clergy to deal with suicide. The liberal use of case materials vividly portrays the issues. It is considered a welcome addition to the sparse body of pastoral care literature on the subject of suicide.
