Dr. James Bachman spent thirty-two of his fifty-plus years of ministry as the senior pastor of Roanoke Baptist Church. He is known for his caring, biblical, and helpful counseling. He attended Michigan State University and Grand Rapids Baptist Bible College and Seminary, and he received his doctor of divinity degree from Shawnee Baptist College.
His wife, Sharon; daughter, Vicky Bachman Pope; and sons, Dr. Mark Bachman and Dr. Jack Bachman, have a combined 130 years of full-time Christian service. God has enabled the author to rescue several people in the process of committing suicide and help many bereaved find new purpose to go on with their lives.
“Suicide in the military is a dreadfully serious problem. I personally believe that leaders and chaplains at all levels of government and military service will reap immense benefits and spiritual insights from reading the exceptionally useful and practical compilation of thoughts in this intriguing book.”
—Colonel J. Tyler Ryberg, USMC (retired)
“This book is an incredible wealth of biblical wisdom! It is an indispensable resource for prevention of suicide and healing for those suffering in the aftermath of such a horrible tragedy. It includes a tremendously practical and solidly scriptural prevention program that can be simply applied in one’s personal life.”
—Mike Tarr, senior pastor
