Overview

Confronting Cancer with Faith is a six-week Bible study that encourages, comforts, and brings hope to patients and their loved ones in the trenches of the cancer battle. Although the story follows Karen's personal journey through breast cancer, the lavender-colored ribbon indicates application to any type of cancer, regardless of gender.

Realizing a simple book wouldn't do, Karen compiled this one-of-a-kind award-winning study to offer not only encouragement, education, and coping techniques, but real spiritual depth. Each lesson contains biblical references, personal application, reflective questions, a meditative thought, and a dedication. Useful for small group or individual study, readers will see themselves in the poignant anecdotes and repeated recognition of God's hand on Karen's life. Non-believers will also find comfort and empathy from the relatable stories ranging from heartbreakingly moving to entertainingly humorous.
