What I have found in my life in ministry is that people need to know that there are others who are going through what they are going through...it enables them to keep going when things are rough.

Asklepieion Books announced the release of “The Caregiver’s Bible” by John Killinger (Asklepieion; $15.99; ISBN: 978-1-887730-40-2), a raw and captivating account of the minister’s tireless months of care for his ailing wife, his cries to God, and the scriptures that helped sustain him in the darkest and most grueling days. The unique book is an inspiration and eye-opening education to spouses-turned-caregivers as they face the realities of one of life’s most difficult and heartbreaking challenges.

“What I have found in my life in ministry is that people need to know that there are others who are going through what they are going through,” said Killinger, “It gives them a sense of solidarity with those people and it enables them to keep going when things are rough. I hope ‘The Caregiver’s Bible’ provides that for caregivers and their loved ones.”
