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.

Author Bio

John Piper (b. 1946) is a widely respected theologian and bestselling author who served as Pastor for Preaching and Vision of Bethlehem Baptist Church for 33 years. He still serves as chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary. Logos has collected his sermons in the John Piper Sermon Archive (1980–2014).

Piper attended Wheaton College where he majored in literature and minored in philosophy. He completed his Bachelor of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he studied under Dr. Daniel Fuller. Piper received his Doctorate in Theology from the University of Munich and taught biblical studies for six years at Bethel College.

In 1994, Piper founded Desiring God Ministries, which provides Piper’s sermons, articles, and information on titles he has authored. One of his bestsellers, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, prompted the name of the ministry.
