Frederick Tamagi is a husband, father, and Christian who details his battle with cancer in a very personal way. The author's battle is not medical (he appropriately leaves that to his doctors) as much as it is a spiritual struggle against both a disease and against his own preconceptions and scepticism. Does God answer prayers to heal people? Even in modern times? Even of cancer? As the author struggles with these questions and many others, he chronicles his journey with quotes from his journal, bible verses he was reading at the time and what they meant to him, and conversations he had with his friends, family, and doctors. Tamagi reveals to us his inmost life of fear, doubt, prayer, and insight with plainness and honesty. Since I read as an outsider, someone who is not dealing with cancer, I was quite surprised to find that I got both pleasure and insight from this book! It's an easy read with the ideas laid out clearly and chronologically, with scripture references reprinted in full so that you won't have to go look them up while you are reading. If you are a Christian who is fighting cancer in yourself, in a loved one, or in patients that you treat, I strongly recommend that you spend a few hours with The Cancer Idol. Frederick Tamagi has some encouraging words for you, and perhaps God does too.
