Written by a pastor who himself had been diagnosed with cancer twice, this series of devotions follows a journey-like process from early diagnosis through treatment to post treatment. The devotions reflect real struggles, confusion, difficulties and doubts at various stages of the journey, and also provide encouragement and advice as given by one who has actually been through the experience.
Using short one to two page devotion-style chapters, Freeman touches on familiar questions including "Why me?," "Where is God?, " "Why doesn't God heal me?," "Why does God let this happen?, "and many others. He returned frequently to the book of Job and talked honestly about his battle against the disease, depression, the challenges to his faith and the spiritual growth gained as a result.
"Rusty Freeman brings relevance that only a person who has suffered cancer can provide. The book is a collection of Freeman's devotional thoughts, advice, Scriptures, poetry, and quotes. You will come away from Freeman's insight believing that God really does understand, care, and provide His help." —Proclaim!
"Insightful meditations and prayers that . . . could only have been written by one who had walked the pathway." —Ben C. Johnson, author of Pastoral Spirituality and professor of Christian Spirituality, Columbia Theological Seminary
"These meditations were forged in the crucible of experience. This book left me profoundly impressed with how Rusty Freeman's faith had been shaken and solidified, challenged and confirmed, questioned and proclaimed. These are meditations for every church library, for the pastor's lending shelf, and for those living with cancer." —Jasper N. Keith Jr., pastor, Decatur Presbyterian Church and past president, Association for Clinical Pastoral Education
"Journey is easy to read and digest; the Scripture selections are on target, and the prayers are simple and poetic, full of praise, hope, and thanksgiving." —Angela Treadway, The Layman Online Book Reviews
