Description

When a son, sister, or grandchild begins to behave in unexpected and disturbing ways, family members hope it is simply a phase. For some, it is instead a lifetime illness--schizophrenia. The diagnosis of schizophrenia can bring shock, fear, and worry to everyone involved. But in the midst of the numerous challenges, hope doesn't have to die. Simonetta chronicles her experiences of caring for a son with schizophrenia, along with all the struggles, questions, and fervent prayer that went with it. But this isn't one person's story. She has provided information and wisdom from psychiatrists, pastors, parents, and people who successfully live with schizophrenia, uncovering the gospel in each situation and sharing hard-won insights on how to care and advocate for those we love.

Review quote

"A Christian mother's moving, practical, courageous and eloquent reflections on the emotional turmoil involved in caring for a son with schizophrenia. This takes the reader deep into wrestling with all the emotions and questions raised by such a devastating illness. This is by far the best book I have encountered that combines wise personal, medical, psychological, historical and deeply theological insights on a controversial topic. A great resource for families, students and professionals."--Richard Winter, Psychotherapist; Professor Emeritus of Applied Theology and Counseling, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
