As a newbie to cancer - just diagnosed with throat cancer a week ago - I'm reading everything I can get my hands on with reference to cancer. I'm in the process of trying to understand it, develop a positive attitude with it, and seek to overcome it.

In this short book Chaffey addresses head on his own battle with cancer (Leukemia). He goes into graphic detail with his discovery of it, his emotions in dealing with it, and God's promises and hope in the midst of it.

Some of the helpful features of this book: its brevity, its Biblical promises; its doctrinal hope with reference to God's sovereignty over evil and suffering.

Chaffey writes an authentically helpful book for those who have discovered they have cancer, family and friends of those with cancer, and gives a positive testimony of God's working in the midst of it, and using prayers, doctors, treatments, and the like in overcoming it. The book is a testimony to God's healing mercy in Tim Chaffey's life and gives good advice and hope for those currently in the battle with cancer.

I purchased this one with my Kindle first and loved it so much that I bought a hard copy for my husband. There is so much great stuff in this book, I don't even know where to begin. I'm a 4 year survivor at the writing of this review...with 4 years of complications from surgery, chemo and radiation.
This book has two parts to it. Part One deals with the cancer and how God is with you thru the entire ordeal. It deals with the nitty gritty part of experiencing the disease tells the story of the writer as he battles with Leukemia - where he found his strength and how he fought his fight.
Part Two deals with God and how He could let this happen...It explains in Biblical terms where God was during all this trial by fire, why evil exists and what the solution is. It also gives the author's wife's side of the story and a physician's side of the author's story.
I found myself underlining (Highlighting in Kindle) so many passages that stuck...things that made me say "YES!" or "Oh, so THAT"S why..." or "Wow...that makes sense." I knew I had to get a copy into my caregiver's hands...my husband...so he could experience the inspirational moments that I did.
It's a great book, but be sure to buy two or be ready to share, 'cuz someone out there who is with you during your trial needs to read this, too.

This book deals with the tough questions such as "Why does God allow suffering", "Why is there evil in the world?" and others that will help you better understand these questions from a biblical and apologetic viewpoint. It is a book that I am starting to use in ministry, we will be handing out 80 of these books to the survivors at our Relay for Life in Mt. Horeb, WI. All the books that I have given out, have been well received and have provided encouragement, strength and hope, in their battle with cancer, when there appears to be none.
Tim's own personal encounter with cancer has shown his unfailing love for God and how he got through a very difficult time in his life. The perspectives from his wife and onocolgist were inspirational and real, truly amazing!

For anyone who does ministry, I have never run into anyone who has not been touched by this disease. I would recommend buying a few copies to give out and hopefully have the chance to share our most precious gift, Jesus Christ, along with the book.

Tim - thanks again and my hat is off to you on a job well done! This book was a blessing to me and I know we can use it to bless others.

Whether you are a cancer survivor, current sufferer, or someone you know or love has fallen to this deadly disease, this book is a must read. Coming from an autobiographical account of the author's own experience from beginning to end as a cancer survivor with a Christian world view, this book is encouraging.

Not only that, it answers some of life's most difficult questions, in the context of cancer, such as why does God allow cancer in this world? Why does got allow death, especially untimely death due to disease? Why is there evil in this world at all, does God even exist?

The authors is candid about his journey and the questions that he found himself asking throughout the journey, as well as the answers he found.

Read it! You'll be glad you did.

God and Cancer by Tim Chaffey hits home. In an open and honest way, Tim shares a full account of his life threatening experience. Cancer is still among the leading causes of death. Those who hear the words, "You have Cancer" will greatly benefit by thinking through Tim's explanation for life's answers to the most difficult questions.
A very readable and moving book, Tim goes beyond sharing experience and into what the meaning of suffering is all about. Sobering - because it can happen to anyone, and encouraging - because he is a surviver, Tim's warmth and concern for others to hear the big picture of existence comes through every page.

Tim Chaffey is a friend of mine, who was diagnosed with leukemia. He is a survivor, and his book speaks from experience.
This is not only a great book to read, but more importantly share.

This book is wonderful for believers and non believers alike. It was refreshing to read a clear presentation of Biblical Christianity. God and Cancer is very well written, easy to comprehend, encouraging, enlightening, well rounded and most importantly... totally glorifying to God! I loved hearing what Tim was thinking and feeling during these difficult circumstances in his life because he responded well as he faced the possibility of death. This is a huge testimony of what our Lord had already done in Tim's life to prepare his heart to go through such a trial. God gives His unmatchless grace to those that experience such trials. It was also neat to see how our Lord worked in the hearts of the Chaffey's, the medical staff and others. His lovely wife even adds some of her thoughts which was a blessing for me to read as I'm a wife too. I have a whole list of people I want to give the book to. On another note, Tim defends the Christian faith using scientific evidence and he also exposes the false teaching and practices of other religions in a humble and Godly way. Great book and a must read for all who have or know of someone going through cancer (or any other trial). This book is a blessing to all who read it!

In this book, the author shares his experience with cancer. From the early struggles with symptoms, to the emotion of the diagnosis. Through the difficult days of treatments and finally to the joy of remission, he shares the insights he gained in the experience and shares how his faith, his family and his Biblical worldview helped him through this most difficult time.

The book is not just an account of his battle with cancer. The author uses his experience to provide answers to some of the tough questions people struggle with during difficult times:
"Does God exist?"
"Why is there Evil in this world?"
"How can God allow suffering and disease?"
"Why do bad things happen to good people?"
The author shares his source of strength during his battle with cancer and how the Bible provides answers to the hard questions in life.

Not only does this book contain the story from the point of view of the patient. But his wife and a Physician each contribute a chapter in the book sharing their unique perspective.

I found the book to be an encouraging reminder that we can trust God in the hard times.

God and Cancer is a book that is a must be read for anyone dealing with cancer or knows someone with cancer. During the first part of the book, Tim talks about his own personnel journey with cancer. It almost felt like I was experiencing it with him. In the last part of the book, Tim talks about the theology of God and suffering. He spends some time talking about how other faith traditions deal with the issue of suffering. It all comes down to the fact that Christianity has the only answer to suffering that gives any hope. I was blessed by Tim's words.

My wife and I bought a case of these books from Tim and we give them to people we know going through cancer. I recently gave this book as a gift to a pastor friend of mine. He emailed me and said he sat down and started reading one evening and finished the next morning. He said that he was blessed by the book and was very grateful that I had given him the book.

I highly recommend this book and commend it to your reading. I will definitely be reading this again.

The first 2/3rds of this book details the incredible story of what Tim went through in his struggle to overcome cancer. His innermost feelings and thoughts will help prepare others for the worst of what could await them in treatment of cancer, but also reveals how if you look to God and the promises of His word that you can find comfort, peace, and victory over your pain, agony, and fears. This was very enlightening and moving. The last 1/3rd of the book primarily deals with Tim's work in apologetics by showing evidence for creation by the God of the Bible, as well as a working theodicy for understanding the existence of evil in the world, especially as related to illness and cancer. Tim's wife writes a chapter and gives her perspective on what she went through during his illness. Finally, Tim's physician gives an Christian oncologist's perspective and counsel he gives to patients on dealing with illness, treatment, and tragedy from a biblical perspective.
