Publishers Description A book of powerful stories about cancer patients and their families who have been touched by God in miraculous ways--some in their bodies, others in their minds, all in their spirits--offers inspiring testimony that, when God and cancer meet, cancer is conquered. The author, herself a cancer survivor, gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of 18 personal encounters with God.Here's what others are saying about "When God & Cancer Meet" "Lynn has captured the essence of hope in this book; captured hope in ways that I have always taught in my professional world as well as in my spiritual community. This book is a treasure to those who struggle with the fears of cancer and I want to keep it close at hand for those reasons." --Judy Lentz, RN, MSN, OCN, NHA Executive Director, Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association "I co-lead a cancer support group at my church, and we have been looking for "just the right book" to study and discuss. Guess what? Lyn wrote it I was truly touched by all the stories; of course being a cancer-survivor myself, I saw myself in one of the stories, as if Lyn were writing my own personal story. I was truly impressed with the way she incorporated scripture, and God's viewpoint into every story. I think that is of utmost importance for anyone facing this disease. Lyn's book is "Real-Life"; some quickly are healed of the cancer, some deal with it over a prolonged period, some deal with recurrences, some, mercifully, die rather quickly. I share Lyn's belief that GOD sometimes chooses to heal in different ways: physically, emotionally and spiritually. In the process of surviving a primary brain tumor, surgery, Chemo, and radiation, I gave my life to Christ, realizing that my physical health was not GOD's main concern, my Spiritual health was the biggest victim of a disease that needed attention and this was the way He FINALLY got my attention. Lyn's book alludes to this fact in every one of her stories. In this day and age that we are living, where it is against the rules to even mention GOD ( unless we mention His name in vain) it is refreshing to have a book written, praising Him for His care and concern for us; written by a woman who has experienced the disease firsthand, and continues to minister to others with cancer, and to work for a Doctor who isn't ashamed of his Faith WOW Obviously, Lyn's book has my highest reccomendation, and my support group will be purchasing multple copies, and we plan to invite Lyn to speak with us. Lyn is a wonderful person, and I thank God for allowing our paths to cross. I'm sure this book will touch many lives, and give many a new perspective and hope with their cancer." --Chris Winand, cancer survivor

When God and Cancer Meet Feb 16, 2007
Excellent book written by someone who has been through the experience. Good for anyone just diagnosised who is looking for encouragement and understanding.
A blessing to its readers! Feb 23, 2006
When I was diagnosed with cancer, this book helped me to deal with the emotional side of the disease and led me to a place of emotional healing. The people whose stories are in this book believe the truth that cancer is personal and specific to each individual but their stories of faith cannot be kept private, they need to be shared. I am so grateful they shared their hearts and inner thoughts with the reader. I thank God for this book and His awesome word found in the pages.
A Must Read for anyone experiencing cancer Feb 9, 2006
This is a great book for anyone experiencing cancer themselves or that of a loved one. This book is filled with true stories, stories that one can relate to and see how another might deal with their diagnosis, treatments, and prognosis. While dealing with cancer myself, I found it comforting to know that someone else has felt the things I've felt and that it's not wrong to have those feelings. I love how Lynn binds God and scripture into each story as the ultimate antidote to our negative thoughts and feelings. I believe ANYONE could benefit from reading this book, even if you are so blessed as to not have cancer in your life or a loved one. I'm looking forward to more books from Lynn!
Great book for anyone with cancer or their family Feb 8, 2006
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
A great help in time of need Feb 8, 2006
This book gives encouragement to everyone fighting cancer in a strong faith based positive manner. The book was recommended to me by the chaplain at Johns Hopkins when I was being treated for Leukemia. I read all of it. True not everyone has a successful physical outcome from their treatment, but more important is the fact that everyone is a survivor!
I have since given several copies of Lynn's book to fellow patients for encouragement for their specific situation and even more for the encouragement of their Faith.
