Review

I've really appreciated this version since I've had it. This translation is very clear - easy to comprehend for most people. The chapters are in sections based on different ideas and events which helps a great deal with understanding what you're reading. One of the better features is that it's fairly lightweight and easy to take with you. I did find myself wishing that it was hard bound, just because it will take a lot more punishment, especially if you are carrying it with you a lot, but I guess a Bible cover would help with that also.

Lynn Eib, who wrote the introduction, side notes and pages in between each book is a cancer survivor. Her style of writing is very down to earth and she doesn't offer up any trite words of comfort. Everyone who has dealt with cancer or any other long term illness knows what I'm talking about. She offers her own personal story and encouragements that make the book much more personal. She also does an excellent job of making the passages much more understandable.

I personally have a chronic disease and I found the words of encouragement very helpful in getting through the down times. I was recently hospitalized and brought it along with me and found great comfort in it. I'll be recommending this to others in the same situation.

While the book is focused on comforting people going through an illness, and it is excellent encouragement for those with cancer and also their caregivers, the words of advice and encouragement can be applied to almost any difficult life situation.

I'd really recommend this for personal study and encouragement, and I'd also recommend this as a gift for a friend going through a difficult illness.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
