Product Description

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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Michael Barry
Located in: Philadelphia, PA.
Submitted: July 21, 2010

    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.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Dr. Harold Koenig, Duke Medical School
