P 123 Suicide and the Church: A Pastoral Theology

Astonishingly, it is still technically illegal to use a Church of England service for the funeral of someone who commits suicide. This indicates the legacy of poor pastoral practice, and the accompanying suspicion of the church, in this area.

This profound and helpful study explores the reasons for this, the pastoral needs and opportunities, and makes use of the latest thinking on suicide to advocate key changes to practice. It includes a wealth of invaluable resources.
