:Schizophrenia doesn't just afflict our loved ones; it slowly replaces them with a stranger we no longer know or understand. It's a harrowing, bewildering condition ... and the church can seem ill-equipped to minister to those with mental illness and their families. Simonetta Carr acutely understands, and she offers her own experience in this story about a mother's fierce love for her son. Holding nothing back, she chronicles the journey of her evolving role as the mother of a son with schizophrenia, as well as the guilt, hope, and fervent prayer that went along with it. She then moves beyond her own experience to bring help to others dealing with this illness, providing information and wisdom culled from psychiatrists, pastors, and sufferers of schizophrenia.
