attempted or committed suicide. I know that it helped me in so many ways.

It was not the book I was hoping to get, there is a copy on archive.com that is free and is more convenient for students.

At my Bible study, someone mentioned this book and we started talking about. I ended up purchasing it because I wanted to see what it was about.

My conclusion is that any book that tries to explain away or justify suicide is committing a sin. Life is a gift from God. Suicide is wrong. Abortion is wrong. End of story.
