"A much-needed manual for all who attempt to counsel troubled souls battling despair."
--Bob Russell, Retired Senior Pastor, Southeast Christian Church

As a physician and minister, Dr. Sleeth shares his personal and professional experiences with depression and suicide, challenging Christians to become part of the solution. With sound medical principles finding their rightful place beside timeless biblical wisdom, Hope Always offers the practical and spiritual tools that individuals, families, and churches need to help loved ones who are stressed and struggling.
In Hope Always, you will find
- research-based and scientifically grounded information about the suicide epidemic,
- biblically based information to start a conversation about the spiritual and emotional battles that so many of us face, and
- a practical toolkit to consult when a loved one is dealing with suicidal ideation.
