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 heartbreakly moving to entertainingly humorous.

“Clear medical explanations . . . will bring comfort to those readers and their loved ones facing a cancer diagnosis” (Publishers Weekly). A Finalist for the Lane Anderson Award for Science Writing Alanna Mitchell explores the facts and myths about cancer in this powerful book, as she recounts her family’s experiences with the disease. When her beloved brother-in-law John is diagnosed with malignant melanoma, Alanna throws herself into the latest clinical research, providing us with a clear description of what scientists know of cancer and its treatments. When John enters the world of alternative treatments, Alanna does, too, looking for the science in untested waters. She comes face to face with the misconceptions we share about cancer, which are rooted in blame and anxiety, and opens the door to new ways of looking at our most-feared illness. Beautifully written, Malignant Metaphor is a compassionate and persuasive book that has the power to change the conversation about cancer. “Mitchell’s research is rooted in science, while her writing remains grippingly personal.” ―Quill & Quire
