Erika Schuchardt is professor of Philosophy at the University of Hanover, Germany. She offers insight into the way people struggle and cope with profound personal suffering, and gives guidance for a pastoral approach to people in spiritual need. 'Through biographies of persons in situations of crisis - a kind of "theology of life stories" and by using religious, psychological, cultural and educational understanding, she demonstrates how persons suffering from illness or disability can become part of a free and truly human community'. People affected by crises describe their successful - or unsuccessful - attempts at living with their crises, their struggles with God, and the people around them, and their experiences with professional support and counselling in fellowship.
