Overview


In Nothing to Fear, Larry Burkett tells his personal journey of a seven-year battle with cancer. Filled with intimate stories and wisdom from the Word, this book will be a great help to the thousands of people who fight this disease, or to friends and loved ones of those in the midst of the struggle. Larry's 2003 passing was the result of heart failure rather than cancer. His legacy continues today and his words still bring hope to those in need of encouragement. "Even if you can avoid dying from cancer, you'll certainly face something else that will eventually kill you, because all of us are going to die. As god as modern medicine is, it is not the ultimate answer. It will let you down. Trusting God is the answer. He will never let you down."--Larry Burkett

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Christian financial guru Larry Burkett forsakes his usual pattern of dispensing personal finance advice to offer hope to cancer patients in Nothing to Fear: The Key to Cancer Survival. In March of 1995, Burkett received a shocking diagnosis of kidney cancer, and learned that it had spread to his left shoulder blade. He faced a low expectation of survival. Here, he explains the strategies that helped him better his chances: arming himself with information, seeking several opinions, exploring alternative treatments (even going as far as Prague for immune therapy), changing his diet and allowing faith to win out over fear. The book is quite practical and reassuring, though much of the personal information has already appeared in Burkett's memoir Hope When It Hurts.

Read an Excerpt


Remember that doctors don't know everything, so don't listen to negative talk. Don't' ask anyone, including your doctors, "How long do you think I'll live?" The person you're asking doesn't know the answer. Only God knows that. After being diagnosed with cancer, I met a man with pancreatic cancer who has become a good friend. Pancreatic cancer is presumed to always be fatal, usually very rapidly. Every time my friend goes to see a doctor he's told that he has only six months to live. They've been telling him that for 11 years. He travels back and forth to Russia several times a year to share his faith. If he had believed what the doctor said about his life expectancy, he might never have gone to share his faith in Russia. If you notice that you're getting down spiritually, emotionally, or mentally, find a friend who walks the talk in his or her faith. Kay Arthur says, "Faith recognizes that God is in control, not man. Faith does it God's way, in God's timing-according to His good pleasure." Get involved in helping other people if you are physically able to do so. You'll find that your troubles won't seem nearly so bad. Spend some time outside yourself. Make it a point to lift up someone else.
