David C. Cook A Reason for Hope: Gaining Strength for Your Fight Against Cancer

From Back of Book: Hope is a strange commodity. When we don't need it, we rarely think about it. But when we need it, we need as much as we can get. So it is for people who are dealing with cancer.

As a chaplain for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, author and pastor Michael S. Barry has an insider's undertanding of the cancer patient's need for A Reason to Hope. With warmth and wisdom, he offers the reader scientific evidence and Scriptural principles that fuel the will to live and build the hope that can heal. If you have cancer - or are in a support role to someone who does - here is A Reason for Hope.
Special Note: Includes chapter guides for personal reflection or group discussions

I had a dear friend who was battling cancer and I was struggling with the possibility of losing him. I turned on the radio in my car one evening and heard Michael Barry speaking about cancer. His words were encouraging and comforting and I rushed home, went online and ordered, "A Reason for Hope" for my friend. I have given the book to two others since then and will continue to keep a copy on hand to give to those that the Lord brings into my path who are going through this struggle.

Are you fighting cancer or know someone that is? This is a wonderful book to give you encouragement or to help someone who has cancer to have hope. It is a easy book to read. I will more than likely buy another one on hand for the next person i meet who is facing cancer. There is always hope when you have God on your side.

Great Book, in many cases this book tells part of my own story. I was one of those given 6 weeks to live and told to go home and get my life in order. It has been seven and a half years since I reminded one oncologist that he was not my God! I will be using this book to teach a class starting in March and am praying it will encourage others that are facing cancer and what the world says is normal.

When I was fighting Merkel Cancer, a very rareaggressive Cancer Rev. Dr. Michael S. Barry's book did give me a reason for hope. I like the fact that he based the book on the Bible and God's love and mercy for us. Reading a Chapter a day and answering the questions fromYour Life Journey in the back of the book got me through the tough times. It did give me a reason for Hope. Now that I am Cancer free I am reading it again. I recommend Rev. Dr. Barry's book to everyone facing Cancer and also to everyone facing any serious illness.

As someone going through treatment for breast cancer, this book gives you solid Biblical encouragement and no matter what you are going through there is hope. I am starting a small group this month at my church using this book to help others either battling cancer, survivors, caretakers or anyone who wants a deeper understanding of God and His faithfulness during a difficult time in their life.
