Cancer: A Medical and Spiritual Guide for Patients and Their Families

cancerBy William A. Fintel M.D. & Gerald R. McDermott Ph.D.

Modern medicine has made amazing advances in the treatment of cancer, but most people still react with shock and fear when they receive the diagnosis. Cancer doesn’t just affect the patient physically; it has emotional and spiritual implications as well. This comprehensive guide to cancer from a Christian perspective combines the hands-on experience of a medical doctor with the wisdom and compassion of a theologian. The book surveys a variety of topics including:

cancer testing, diagnosis, and treatments
alternative therapies
the mind-body connection
faith, fear, healing, and doubts
life after the diagnosis

Written in accessible language, this complete manual will help cancer patients as well as their families and friends. It is an essential resource for pastors, counselors, Stephen ministers, and hospice groups. (Publisher’s description)
