Trusting God When You Have Cancer
Help and Hope for the Road Ahead
Cancer impacts countless lives, yet it can be difficult to discuss. Those diagnosed struggle to ask the questions that race through their minds. Their friends don’t know what to say. Trusting God When You Have Cancer presents communication between two friends both facing the disease and reveals words of compassion and hope as breathtaking photos illuminate the seasons of creation’s renewing beauty.
This is a safe place where doubts and frustrations are met by a deeper sense of God’s faithfulness. It is a companion for a person with cancer and a guide to understanding for caregivers, spouses, and friends. Every person who faces cancer or wants to be sensitive to a loved one’s questions, fears, and needs will benefit from this remarkable dialogue of faith and reminder of God’s comfort and presence.
“Cancer touches many families, and sometimes more than once. Friends fight cancer and gain remission, while others still struggle with the disease. This book provides spiritual guidance, compassion and hope for anyone who struggles with the disease. Although many books on how to cope with the diagnosis of cancer have been written, this small gift book is one of the best I've read.”
“Insights in the book are plentiful and of such depth that a reader could easily refer back to it several times and gain new discoveries. Nancy J. Locke’s scenic photography adds to the therapeutic and aesthetic qualities of the book and encourages the reader to take another look.”
“Thank you so much for the gift of your book Trusting God When You Have Cancer. While I don't have cancer, I am going through much physical pain from a recent bicycle accident and was getting very discouraged with the ‘one step forward, two steps back” of my healing. But your book has encouraged me to ‘Get on With Life!’ and stay focused on God and live as fully as my current strength allows. Bless you!”
“I gave the book to a friend with brain cancer and she liked it so well she put it in the cancer treatment center for others to read.”
“As a long time cancer survivor, I have recently discovered and read this book. I truly loved the soothing quality of the exchanges between Jerry and Ron and the honesty they expressed on their journey. The beautiful photos are so well presented graphically and enhance that feeling of comfort and beauty which is so necessary as we walk through any time of challenge. I would readily recommend and/or give this to someone facing such a time.”
“I’m confident that this book, birthed from Jerry Cook and Ron Pinkston’s own struggles, will be a catalyst of healing for all those who read it.”
—Dr. Jack Hayford, President, International Church of the Foursquare Gospel
“The hope in these pages will empower you to walk strong in God’s hands. You will be brought to a place of comfort and peace. Read and re-read.”
—Gregory L. Jantz, PhD, CEDS, The Center for Counseling and Health Resources, Inc.
“Extremely readable! The musings between two friends—both of whom have faced cancer—is so easy to digest. Even those without cancer can relate to the emotional and intellectual challenges faced when experiencing disease or tragedy as have the authors.
“Whether reading short portions of the book or its entirety, anyone will come away having been uplifted and encouraged by both the pragmatic honesty as well as the insightful counsel of two spiritual giants. It’s a book which will free those who read it to deal with the issues facing their own lives within the parameters of their own personalities while at the same time being aided by the wisdom of a God who is always by one’s side.”
—Dr. Jim Tolle, The Church On The Way
“It is my hope and prayer for those thinking of reading this book and who may be just starting down the path of this story and feeling overwhelmed and alone that you are not. Jesus’ promise to His disciples was also a promise to you—to be with you, to walk with you, to laugh and cry with you.
“May Ron and Jerry’s words bring you comfort on those days of seemingly unending chemotherapy or radiation therapy, but most of all may it give you the courage to reach out to someone you dearly love and ask them to take this journey with you.”
—Samuel Edge, CEO, Digital Revelations
