A couple years ago, I participated in Jake Bouma’s Cancer & Theology blog series; you can read my essay here. He has just recently turned the collection of posts into a really great, and helpful, e-book; Cancer & Theology. I think for any of us who are serving churches, and will of course run into people who have been diagnosed with cancer, it may be a very helpful read. This is a good summary of what to expect with the book:
Cancer & Theology is an anthology of sixteen essays addressing the difficult questions of faith raised by illness and death. The essays, penned by a diverse collection of Christian thinkers, are often raw and always honest. Cancer & Theology provides unique insights about the presence of God and the importance of community in the midst of grief and uncertainty.
List of contributors: Paul Amlin, Kester Brewin, Adam Walker Cleaveland, Adam J. Copeland, Abigail Rian Evans, David Fitch, Nate Frambach, Greg Garrett, Tony Jones, Joshua Longbrake, Brian McLaren, Carol Howard Merritt, Brandon Lyman Mick, Andy Root, Mike Stavlund, Greg Syler
A portion of all proceeds from the sale of this e-book will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I commend the book to you – it’s only $5.99 and available for the Kindle here.
