Family, friends, and even therapists, can catch only glimpses of the intense pain, self-doubt, ethical probing, and theological questioning those attempting suicide undergo. "Children of Jonah" offers insight into this frightening inner world and a more wholesome understanding for all who have witnessed it from within. These inspiring stories convey suicide survivors’ indomitable strength in spite of overwhelming depression, loss of self-image and the will to live. Contributors include an African American multi-attempter, now a Ph.D. student in psychology at UCLA; a middle-aged author, the son of missionaries; a psychiatrist and survivor of seven attempts, and many more.

About the Author:

The founder and president of OASSIS (Organization for Attempters and Survivors of Suicide in Interfaith Services), James T. Clemons is also an ordained minister for the United Methodist Church. He is the author of What Does the Bible Say About Suicide, Sermons on Suicide, and Perspectives on Suicide

Review:

"Part of the message of 'Children of Jonah' is the importance of community in its literal and figurative senses....Another message that comes through under the editorship of Clemons is that of the potential impact of suicide on other individuals.This message comes out best in the foreword written by the singer Judy Collins..."
