Kevin Ellers and Jennifer CIsney are highly-respected leaders in this area as well as being experienced spiritual caregivers. They provide great instruction, information, and tips for those who provide emotional and spiritual care in emergencies and at disasters. Each chapter contains instructional material, tips, questions to consider, and real-life examples which makes it easy to apply what they teach. Each subject is covered thoroughly without being long or clinical. I highly recommend this book to Christian laity who want to be prepared to provide care that benefits individuals suffering from a crisis or disaster.

The staff of JTS & RMBC highly recommends this book and feel it is a great tool for equipping the saints for the work of the ministry,
which is the vision and mission statement of both schools.

This book is a must have for the Counseling Ministry of my church. It is a great resource that I will use for training Spiritual caregivers in our congregation. It is well written, practical, and personable. I could relate to almost every chapter of the book - either as a victim, caregiver, or first responder. I highly recommend it for a church library resource.
