Marissa Henley. Loving Your Friend through Cancer.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, May 31st 2018. 264 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is tremendously helpful book on a very difficult topic of what to do when one’s friend is going through cancer.  The book is written by Marissa Henley who herself is a cancer survivor.  It took me a long time to finish the book but I am glad I read through this book slowly. It was extremely helpful and I took pages after pages of notes along the way.  In God’s providence I read this book as a pastor who at first was curious about ministering to those who have cancer as a hypothetical scenario and therefore it wasn’t a priority but then it turned out I really did needed this book in ministering to someone who really had cancer a few months after I first began this book.  I am glad this book was written as I found it immensely helpful for pastors though it was written for lay Christians in the church.  I recommend this book and rate it five out of five.
