Reviews - What do customers think about Prayers & Promises When Facing A Life-Threatening?
Just what was needed. Mar 28, 2010
I just bought this book for my parents after my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Each day has refreshing truths dealing with circumstances and emotions revolving around a life-threatening illness. I appreciate Dobson's honesty. I just ordered two more copies, one for a sibling and one for me to keep at home. Great book for the one suffering from the disease and for those surrounding that person to understand what is going on emotionally.
great devotional Dec 14, 2008
This is an excellent book and I would recommend it for anyone dealing with a terminal illness. I recommend it even if you aren't dealing with a terminal illness. It helps me to understand some of the struggles of those who are going through difficult times. The author is very transparent.
Comforting Dec 28, 2007
This wonderfully spiritual book, written by a much-beloved pastor in my home town who is dying due to ALS, has helped a number of my friends and their families as death approaches. It provides comfort and the promise of God's Grace when needed the most.
