Healing from Despair : Choosing Wholeness in a Broken World
by Elie Kaplan Spitz and Erica Shapiro Taylor and Abraham J. Twerski




Overview -

The suffering that brings you to despair and even desperation can--with healing--become a source of hope, purpose and blessing.

Are you:
Feeling anxious?
Feeling depressed because of the loss of health, a relationship or a job?
Grieving the loss of a loved one?
Grieving loss by a suicide?
Feeling hopeless?
Concerned about a friend who has suicidal thoughts?

This wise and helpful guide explores the nature of personal suffering and brokenness and the potential for personal crisis as a source of strength and renewal instead of despair and death. Examining the personal journeys of biblical and historical figures such as Moses, Maimonides, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Buber--as well as the author's own personal experience with despair--it looks at brokenness as an inescapable element of the human condition. It traces the path of suffering from despair to depression to desperation to the turning point--healing--when first-hand knowledge of suffering can be transformed into blessing.
