Editorial Reviews

About the Author

In a seventh-grade journalism class, Lynn Eib decided she wanted to grow up to be a newspaper reporter. Two years later she applied to be the sports editor of her school's weekly paper even though the administration said only boys could have that job. She finally convinced them she knew sports and would stay out of the boys' locker room and got the job. Her love for newspaper reporting never waned and she majored in journalism at the Ohio State University, where she also met the love of her life on her first and last blind date. They married eight months later in 1973 and her husband, Ralph, recently retired after 32 years in pastoral ministry.

I reviewed the book first by getting it from our public library.

God willing, a lot of them will, this book addresses the important fact that God can help us through the dark times and indeed HE is our hope.

I read this book shortly after being diagnosed with terminal stage IV lung cancer. As a non-smoker; active, health conscious 46 year old woman; and a Christian, I read this book hoping to feel a sense of peace from what other cancer patients had experienced. Indeed I felt the peace and so much more. The book, in addition to my strong faith, helped me to truly believe that it really doesn't matter whether you live on this earth or live in heaven. The important thing when God and cancer meet, is to make the opportunity to affect others' lives in such a way that they too can look forward to heaven. What an uplifting and precious book. I highly recommend the reading to cancer patients as well as the families of those patients.

I received a copy of this book as I was dealing with my new diagnosis of prostate cancer at age 46.

I found the book to be encouraging, inspiring, and comforting. It was also realistic; not like some books that say that everyone will be ok. After all, many of my patients have died from cancer.

The book was so good that I bought a case and started giving the book to my friends and patients who were struggling with cancer.

This is a "must read" for anyone struggling with cancer!

I brought this book for my mother who is living with cancer and due to the print she's not able to read it herself so I told her i'd read it for her. And I must say I was truly blessed by it. Informing my mother that I really have to see if I can purchase it in a larger print for her(my reason for coming on here) because she has to read it for herself it's just one of those books that'll read as if it were written especially for you. All of my explaining won't give the total package that reading it for herself will.

I was blessed to be able to relate to some of what was written as well as being reminded that Christ's death wasn't to make this a perfect world but to lead us back to perfection from this fallen society and with or without cancer many of us need to be reminded of that in order to benefit from the blessings of being a believer on this side of heaven. Lynn's ability to minister to over talking at the individiuals in her group was also both a blessing and reminder and just the outcomes of each story no matter what happened with the person regarding cancer, everyone had a common factor of how God touched and spoke directly to their lives.

Definately recommend this book for cancer survivors and their loved ones.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In almost all the scenarios presented by the author, the patient dies. At the beginning of the book, she does say that she has purposely chosen tough situations so that her readers can feel encouraged if their situation is really bad. However, reading about these cases that almost all result in the death of the patient is not encouraging. I wish I hadn't read it, as it took me a while to get out of the depressed mood this book put me in. I do not recommend this book for those trying to find hope - it's more for people who have reconciled themselves to dying of the disease

The author has done a really great job of encouraging cancer patients and caregivers in a subsequent book called "Finding the Light in Cancer's Shadow: Hope, Humor, and Healing after Treatment". I would recommend this book instead

I understand people who are going through cancer want to believe they will survive it's terrible grip. God willing, a lot of them will, this book addresses the important fact that God can help us through the dark times and indeed HE is our hope. Yes, life happens, but Lynn Eib's book shows in a very powerful way, how people in the midst of the most devastating thing in their lives can and do reach out to God and how He impacts their lives after they do. I've given this book to at least 20 people and have been told that they in turn have bought it and given it to everyone they know who has cancer. That's how important a book it is. Thank you Mrs. Eib for caring enough to give us the hope and a way to find shelter from the storm. Prudence Ruth

My mother (66 yrs old) was diagnosed with terminal stage IV lung cancer just 6 weeks ago. She has already endured 2 chemotherapy sessions and I was looking for any way possible to help her, and my father, to find "peace" with their future. As I walked into the bookstore, my eyes fell onto this book. After reading "When God and Cancer Meet", I know that God has led me directly to this book for a reason. My tears flowed as I eagerly read the pages, realizing that this book was exactly what my Mother needed to hear. She has not read it yet, but I have a feeling that God will bless her, and release her from worry, through this book. What an awful thing cancer is, but with God by our, there is always hope!

Format: Paperback
When my sister was diagnosed with [...] cancer, 5 years ago, this book was a good source of understanding and spiritual strength. Lynn Eib is a cancer survivor and she tells the stories of about 20 people who also faced cancer. As a pastor, I find that cancer brings many questions about faith, Jesus and healing. I have given away about 25 copies of this book to people in our congregation, both those with cancer and family members who also struggle with their faith in a time like this.

This is a witness to the presence of God in the midst of some of the darkest time of a person's life. This book can bring hope and healing to those who read it.
