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.

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.

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.
Janice Mason5 Stars Out Of 5February 13, 2010Janice MasonGreat 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.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am the Director of Pastoral Care at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia, PA.
What was your motivation behind this project? Most books of this sort are written by physicians or patients. I wanted to write a book from a pastors perspective.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hope.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I realized what I had not learned in eight years of formal religious education. Our faith can, and should, make a difference in how we live our lives in the face of mean disease.
