Overview

David Gira wants rightly to live but he knows that requires an account of what it means to live right. To live right requires honest candor. That is what he has given us in this book. Pain is here but then also is laughter. You can give this book to others. -- Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke Divinity School

Battling to beat cancer, finding a cure, and fighting to survive can become all-encompassing.

Like most people, when diagnosed with cancer, David only wanted physical healing. God had bigger plans and used David's cancer experience to heal many areas of brokenness in his life. By the time of his first cancer-free report, two years later, his life had been radically transformed.

In How Cancer Cured Me, David Gira, seasoned pastor and cancer survivor, shares fifteen ways God used his cancer experience, with all its challenges, to heal his life in addition to ultimately providing physical healing. The topics range from becoming more courageous to finding his get-up-and-go. David also writes about the ways God used the cancer journey to positively impact his most important relationships.

With refreshing honesty and humor, David tells his cancer story, shares inspiring stories of other cancer patients, and reflects on relevant Scripture.

How Cancer Cured Me brings together the author's theological training, pastoral experience, and his personal narrative. Cancer patients will find a helpful companion. Christians will be inspired by his testimony. The less religious will appreciate his approachable and authentic voice. All will enjoy his candor and humor.
