Reviews - What do our customers think?
If you are alone -- HE IS THERE  Dec 2, 2005
I love this book. I've never wanted to go to a Christian counselor but God blessed me with Dr. David Cox ( www.drdavidcox.com). This book is not only good for the survivor but also for those who want to survive. I read the book out of curiosity more than anything and discovered the love and pain that people left from suicide go through. It has shown me father god's love with such a passion (http://www.shilohplace.org and http://www.fathersloveletter.com). In his recommendations he also has provided me with a book called Father Hunger (http://www.mcgeepublishing.com) for those who yearn to know who the Father is that really cares. The one who won't leave you alone, the One who has always been there and watched over you and has never let you go. Wait until you discover that God is the one who never leaves you, who is always with you and who gives you the hope -- especially when you feel there is none. Don't be alone - because you're not. Your eyes will open when you see that you are not alone -- God is always there - always has been and always will be.
 
Aftershock: Help, Hope and Healing in the Wake of Suicide  Mar 4, 2005
This is an incredibly helpful book for which, sadly, there long has been a tremendous need. How I wish it had been available thirty or forty years ago. Silence too often follows suicide, which only delays and compounds the challenges of grieving such a loss. The authors rightly stress how vital it is that survivors talk about what has happened. This book is a powerful aid and encouragement in doing so. The earthquake metaphor works beautifully throughout; surely one's landscape is forever changed after a suicide, and in its aftermath it takes a long time for survivors to feel safe. Of the myriad after effects of suicide - including survivor guilt, fear and societal suspicion - all are eloquently articulated. The book's contents are broken up into manageable bites for readers who may be able to focus for short periods. The section on how to talk to children about suicide (and the importance of honesty) was particularly moving and very clear and helpful. Several personal stories are interspersed throughout the text and the variety of voices and perspectives enriches what is already an invaluable book. This is the book I will put into the hands of both survivors and those who want to offer the sort of help that is most needed.
 
Much needed book for anyone who counsels others!  Apr 27, 2004
Anyone who counsels others should have this book in their library before it's needed. Dr. Cox knows first hand what it's like to be left behind after a family member completes suicide. When he was only nine-years-old, his father killed himself, leaving a confused, angry little boy. Other stories illustrate the book as he and Ms. Arrington help readers learn the signs that a loved one may be contemplating suicide, with a chapter dedicated to exploring teen depression and suicide. They compassionately guide readers and give them hope for rebuilding their lives when a loved one does indeed commit suicide.
 
An excellent--and long-needed--book  Jan 4, 2004
David Cox and Candy Arrington have written a long-needed book. For decades, suicide has been the death no one talks about. AFTERSHOCK dispels the many misconceptions about suicide, including the belief that people who talk about suicide usually don't follow through. Or that when depression lifts, suicide is no longer a concern.

The earthquake analogy used thoughout the book is fitting. Like an earthquake, suicide leaves immediate devastation; its damaging effects are strongest at the "epicenter," the family; and aftershocks continue to be felt. The aftershocks of suicide, the authors say, are isolation, anger, guilt, rejection, betrayal, grief, and loss. AFTERSHOCK explains how to deal with each of these emotions.

Especially important is the section on explaining a death by suicide to children. Suggestions for suicide intervention and for starting a support group of survivors of suicide are also included. Chapter 3 contains excellent advice for recognizing the symptoms of suicidal behavior in teens and responding effectively.

The authors use the term survivor as a person who has lost a friend or loved one to suicide and also as someone who has attempted suicide and failed. Both will find practical help and Biblically-based encouragement in AFTERSHOCK. Pastors and counselors will also benefit from reading this exceptional book.

 
A Relatively Small Book with an Uncommonly Big Heart.  Oct 18, 2003
Suicide, even a failed attempt at suicide, is always a shock. For those who must cope following a suicide, or a failed attempt at suicide, life is one unpredictable series of aftershocks. Authors Cox and Arrington have written this warm and lucid and often very personal book to help in the coping with these aftershocks.

But this is also a book for anyone who has ever contemplated suicide. It contains many practical suggestions for how one might help oneself choose to live even when life may not seem worth living. It also offers help to those who love such a person and want desperately to help them stay alive when dying is more attractive.

Preventing suicide is always best. Finding hope and healing in the "aftershock" of suicide is always possible. This outstanding book is one of the most honest, practical, and life-saving guides I know for dealing with all stages of this delicate and difficult subject.
