    Nita Tarr has written a very honest book, detailing the many atrocities she has faced, and survived in her life. Nita takes each of these, which often led her to think about suicide, and remembers what God taught her through each of the various episodes. The book is insightful and Nita has some wonderful things to say. She is a master of allegory and parable; using metaphors at the beginnings of each chapter to explain what the chapter will be about. These parables are always thought-provoking. Nita Tarr has written a very honest book, detailing the many atrocities she has faced, and survived in her life. Nita takes each of these, which often led her to think about suicide, and remembers what God taught her through each of the various episodes. The book is insightful and Nita has some wonderful things to say. She is a master of allegory and parable; using metaphors at the beginnings of each chapter to explain what the chapter will be about. These parables are always thought-provoking. Near the end of the book Nita quotes the World Health Organisation. “Worldwide, the prevention of suicide has not been adequately addressed due to a lack of awareness of suicide as a major problem and the taboo in many societies to discuss openly about it. In fact, only a few countries have included prevention of suicide among their priorities.” (quoted pg. 263) This is very true and therefore it is absolutely wonderful that Nita has tackled this issue so honestly, openly and biblically. Further 'Suicidal Christians' contains some great acronyms for remembering various helps Nita provides throughout the book. One of my favourites is PEWS Fuse, which is an acronym about gaining hope from the Lord. P- Pour out your heart to God. E- Expect Him to work. W- Wait patiently. S- Seek God. Further, each chapter opens with what Nita thinks God would say to a person in the situation the chapter discusses, and I feel she hits these dead on. Then each chapter ends with a sample responsive prayer. A very good addition to the book. Now for the very few (and really minor) negatives. - Nita's theology of alcohol isn't great. She, in an attempt to explain why anti-depressants are okay to be used by Christians (as some, pointing out they are mood altering like alcohol, say Scripture forbid them on the same basis). Nita, in my opinion, incorrectly approaches this issue by saying being drunk is okay and that the Bible only forbids being a drunk. - “We repent because we are saved, we do not repent to get saved. If repentance brought salvation, then salvation would be the result of works, which it is not.” (277) This is an admirable quote, but the idea of repentance is that it unlocks salvation. It isn't a work to bring about salvation, but neither is there salvation without it. However, this is a valiant attempt to explain something that is truly unexplainable... I just wouldn't have put in that particular sentence. All in all this is a fantastic book and worth a read, especially if you know someone who you suspect is thinking of suicide, if you know someone who has previously attempted suicide, or if you work with an 'at risk' group (such as young people). It is filled with God's Word and, in the words that are not God's by and large it is filled with God's wisdom. Thank you Nita for being so open and honest and discussing this terribly difficult topic.

    This review says it all: "I picked up this book after taking an overdose with suicidal intent. I had suffered with depression and suicidal feelings since the age of 12, and I am now 22 years old. I was baptised as a Christian at the age of 13 during a period of mental anguish and bereavement, and if someone had told me I would still be feeling that way a decade later I would probably never have chosen Christ.

I had suffered with depression and suicidal feelings since the age of 12, and I am now 22 years old. I was baptised as a Christian at the age of 13 during a period of mental anguish and bereavement, and if someone had told me I would still be feeling that way a decade later I would probably never have chosen Christ. I have sought guidance in other Christian books and have inevitably ended up feeling discouraged, unable to hit the mark or feel their promises to be true. I had tried turning away from God, but found only fleeting satisfaction, but when I sought God, found myself crippled with fear and confused about why I was failing in my spiritual walk. I felt unable to keep up appearances to fit in with other Christians, and in coming clean about my failures with members of my church was told that I was 'not a Christian' and that I had some nerve showing my face at church, which was hurtful although I knew it not to be true. From the moment I opened this book, I felt it speak deeply into my heart. It is as though the author knows me personally, and she speaks in real and honest terms about common experiences (right down to a similar kind of chronic pain) that I had felt I was completely alone in. I have experienced every single one of the struggles covered in this book. Each chapter begins with a message written in God's voice, and this has helped me to hear him when sometimes he seems absent or disapproving. The style of writing is easy to follow, with points broken down into lists. The prayer at the end of each chapter helps to summarise and set out its goals clearly. I like the use of allegories to demonstrate points. This book has moved me and shown me new perspective, and identified some of the reasons why I have never been able to grasp the fullness of Christian life and the joy that is promised to us. Only time will tell what will happen next, but I have found new hope and clarity I thank Nita from my heart for writing. If she is reading this then I hope she will not mind me saying I already think of her as a dear sister and friend!"

The author speaks openly about the harrowing experiences of her life and her abiding and intimate relationship with God which has enabled her to transcend the debilitating symptoms of depression. Nita Tar has produced a work that is an insightful and interesting read. She presents a balanced and biblical perspective which has been quarried out of her own battles with addiction and depression. As such it is an authentic account of a victorious life in Christ. I commend this work, not only as a refreshing read but as a long overdue confession of truth that all Christians need to hear. I trust that those who read it will find permission to remove their masks and become catalysts for change towards a more credible Christian community. Kieran Beville, pastor, author, lecturer.

    This is a very well laid out book. It provides explanations and responses in both a psychological and spiritual perspective. A must read for anyone working with others dealing with depression and suicide. Also a very informative and reflective read for those who once experienced these difficulties.
