Rejoicing in Lament: Wrestling with Incurable Cancer and Life in Christ
3 in stock
At the age of thirty-nine, Christian theologian Todd Billings was diagnosed with a rare form of incurable cancer. In the wake of that diagnosis, he began grappling with the hard theological questions we face in the midst of crisis: Why me? Why now? Where is God in all of this?
This eloquently written book shares Billings' journey, struggle and reflections on providence, lament and life in Christ in light of his illness, moving beyond pat answers toward hope in God's promises.
"Every chapter brims with pools of insight, pointing us beyond platitudes to the God who has met us - and keeps on meeting us - in the Suffering and Risen Servant. This is a book not just for reading but for meditation and prayer."
- Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California
"This profound and heartfelt book is for all Christians, for sooner or later we must all face the challenge of our own mortality."
- Carl R. Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania
