Fierce goodbye: living in the shadow of suicide
What does the Bible say on the topic of suicide? What does it not say? Lloyd, now professor emeritus of biblical and theological studies at Gordon College, Mass., began to ask these questions after a daughter-in-law died by suicide. He embarked on a thorough canvassing of the scriptures and church history on this topic, which helped him on his grief journey. Gwendolyn found solace in writing out her responses and thoughts in moving, sensitive poetry. Their combined efforts meld the pain and poignancy of the devastating experience of a family member's suicide. Fierce Goodbye is first and foremost a penetrating account of a family dealing with suicide, and offers solid guidance for those who worry about the eternal fate of a loved one. It also provides a reliable and readable summary of Christian thinking about suicide, useful for pastors, counselors, students, and teachers. This special documentary edition was published in cooperation with Mennonite Media and Mennonite Mission Network. A website for the documentary offers follow-up resources for persons dealing with the aftermath of suicide, ww.fiercegoodbye.com, where you can also find information on purchasing copies of the documentary on video or DVD.
