Introduction: Cancer is funny -- I thought I had cancer -- Tumor baby -- Chemo sissy -- Side effects -- Amazing dis-grace -- Nadir -- The last straw -- The joke's on you.
Methodist pastor Jason Micheli writes honestly about being stricken with stage-serious cancer in the midst of a promising career and raising young children. He struggles with his commitment to the God who may or may not be doing this to him. Because figuring this out for himself-not to mention explaining it to his congregation and his children-is so important, theology is now a matter of life and death. This is a funny, no-holds-barred, irreverent-yet-faithful take on the disease that is the leading cause of death in the world.
