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.
