Item description for My Life and My Death: A Priest Confronts His Cancer by Jeffrey T. Simmons...

"My greatest teacher has been my cancer," says Jeffrey T. Simmons in "My Life and My Death." In walking readers, step-by-step, through his story of faith as he faces death, Simmons conveys a thoughtful treatment of living with a terminal illness.

Publishers Description
"My greatest teacher has been my cancer," says the author in his story of faith as he faces death. But the author never goes too far in the direction of becoming "touchy-feely" with his illness. In fact, he refers to his cancer as being of the devil, yet he never dwells too long in this application either. There is humor but never too much. There is some "preaching" about people with grudges against God but never too much. Instead he tells us, step by step, how he learned of his cancer, how he learned that his cancer was worse than originally thought, how he came to bond with his doctor, how he came to accept the stages of disintegration of his body. The author's main work here is to find ways to bring us unbearable tidings about sickness and dying in ways that, with God, are bearable.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Life and My Death: A Priest Confronts His Cancer?

Profoundly moving and spiritually uplifting  Jan 15, 2006
Don't be put off by the sad title. This book does deal with some very painful situations, but it is beautifully written, with humor, dignity, and faith. I couldn't put it down. A copy of this book would be encouraging to anyone who must face a devastating disease (understanding, of course, that it is written from a deeply Christian perspective), and maybe to a few physically healthy friends who could benefit from simply spending some quiet time with this thoughtful,loving author. The Simmons family has honored us all by sharing this book.
