Randy Alcorn uses the Scriptures to approach this often touchy subject head-on.

Alcorn deals straightforwardly with issues of materialism, stewardship, prosperity theology, debt, and more. An excellent choice for group study as well as individual financial guidance.

Cancer: everyone has either experienced cancer or knows someone who has. It is the most feared word in the English language. I thought I was the last person who would ever get cancer, much less die from it. When cancer interrupted my life, I was a young man of 36, with a family, who was about to embark on an exciting new chapter in his life. I was preparing to go back to school to study architecture at the University of Cincinnati (fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming an architect). When I placed my faith in God many years earlier, He promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” I would find out if that promise were true. From the initial diagnosis, to the time I died on the operating room table, to being faced with a (literally) life-or-death decision regarding the bone marrow transplant procedure, God never abandoned me. The doctors said my life was over, but God said, “Not Yet!”
