Overview

How are we as Christians called to respond when cancer invades our lives, whether our own bodies or those of our friends and family?

On the eve of his own cancer surgery, John Piper writes about cancer as an opportunity to glorify God. With pastoral sensitivity, compassion, and strength, Piper gently but firmly acknowledges that we can indeed waste our cancer when we don’t see how it is God’s good plan for us and a hope-filled path for making much of Jesus.

Don’t Waste Your Cancer is for anyone touched by a life-threatening illness. It first appeared as an appendix in Suffering and the Sovereignty of God. Repackaged and republished, it will serve as a hope-giving resource for healthcare workers, pastors, counselors, and others caring for those with cancer and other serious illnesses. The booklets are also available in packs of ten.

    I am a cancer survivor, (multiple myeloma), and I loved this little book so much that I am recommending it to everyone! It served to remind me of so many of the lessons I have learned on this journey. It fits perfectly with my beliefs that it really isn't about the cancer, it is about my relationship with God.

    Did not information helpful

    I am in my 18th month of chemo for ovarian cancer, which has a very low rate of survivors. I was extremely disappointed in the content of this pamphlet. It did not agree with my theology and the way I feel about this fight for survival. I am not an author, but think I would write a better, more helpful book.
