Item Description...
A collection of sermons, given by the author--a Methodist pastor whose son committed suicide in 1994--the first one just weeks after his son's death; they offer no silver linings, no easy solutions, and no rosy pictures, instead they give an honest account of the difficult emotions and confusion of this kind of loss, and ultimately about a sense of hope for the survivors of suicide. Original.

Publishers Description
In 1994 William Ritter's adult son committed suicide, sending Ritter and his family on a journey no family wants to take. Part of Ritter's own process of healing the loss of his son was to preach about it occasionally from the pulpit. This book is a collection of the sermons he preached, the first one just three weeks after his son's death, and the final one nine years later. Through them, we get a glimpse of a father and a family struggling honestly with their pain and gradually-over the years-coming to grips with their loss. Take the Dimness of My Soul Away will be a welcome companion to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide, as well as to pastors and counselors who work with those who are grieving. Ritter offers no easy solutions, no rosy pictures, and no silver linings, but speaks honestly instead about the difficult emotions and confusion of this kind of loss, and ultimately, about a sense of hopefulness for the survivors of suicide.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Parents of Suicide  Feb 6, 2008
We lost our son to suicide and I found this a very comforting book. You can read it in one night but the message is great. All I can say it can happen to any family.
Very helpful  Dec 1, 2007
This book has been very helpful to my family since my brother's suicide, in fact so helpful my mother and stepfather ordered multiple copies for the extended family and I have ordered copies for church and friends. Having lived through the suicide death of his son, the author is able to put into words the horrible grief such a loss generates.This is a spiritual, not a clinical, perspective on suicide. Rev. Ritter is very open and honest in sharing his feelings and thoughts. I found comfort and hope for healing in this book.Between us we have read several books and the consensus is this is the best.
For All Who Have Suffered Loss  Dec 8, 2004
Although Reverend Ritter bases his book on sermons given after his son committed suicide, his words are relevant for anyone who is experiencing the agony of loss and at any stage of the journey. This small book is honest, powerful, comforting, and hopeful.
