From Pastor to Psych Ward: Recovery from a Suicide Attempt is Possible by Steve Austin is a testimonial about one man’s life struggles, dealing with abuse and recovery from a suicide attempt. This is a touching book that deals with a topic most people don’t admit. The author shares tidbits from his past to declare the power of forgiveness that only comes through trusting God. We will all go through diverse temptations and trials as we live this life of faith.
Reading a book about a friend who lost her mom to suicide would probably be difficult for most folks to digest, but even knowing my own history, I didn’t comprehend how deeply this story would echo in the chambers of my soul. I don’t do book formal reviews. But sometimes a book comes across your desk that is so powerful, you have to tell others about it.
