With pastoral sensitivity, compassion, and strength, Piper gently but firmly acknowledges that we can indeed waste an unusual opportunity when we don’t see how cancer fits into God’s good plan for us and for the kingdom of God.

Written on the eve of Piper’s own cancer surgery, Don’t Waste Your Cancer is for anyone touched by a life-threatening illness. It is a hope-giving resource for healthcare workers and counselors, pastors and church communities, as well as friends and families.
