I never imagined that cancer would be a battle I would have to face. If you’re going through it now, I’m sure you feel blindsided like I did. It’s hard to put into words what it feels like to get the devastating diagnosis and then make the choice to bravely persevere no matter what. Lynn has a special way with words. Peace in the Face of Cancer is the kind of book I wish I had had while I was going through treatments. You will be encouraged and motivated throughout this book because it’s not about cancer; it’s about rising above your circumstances and finding peace regardless of what life throws at you.
When we hear the word cancer, it seems that the whole world stops. This book shows you the way to get moving again. The journey is not an easy one, and as Harper Lee wrote, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view . . . until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” Lynn gives you the shoes to “walk around in it” and see how to survive this journey with the Lord as your guide and comforter.
The clever and appropriate use of biblical passages, as well as personal and relevant quotes from individual commentators and medical professionals, is very humanizing and moving. Lynn offers a practical approach that is uplifting and spiritually inspiring. Her book makes you want to look to the Bible for more guidance and comfort!
As a licensed psychologist and a cancer survivor still fighting the battle, I found Peace in the Face of Cancer inspiring, informative, and incredibly helpful! Whether it is you or a loved one confronting cancer, this life-affirming book will enable you to experience God’s peace in your hearts and in your homes.
What Lynn Eib offers in Peace in the Face of Cancer is not a bunch of theoretical self-help principles but real, where-the-shoe-leather-hits-the-pavement wisdom. It’s practical, it’s honest, it’s useful today. I’m going to keep this book handy for rereading.
