Cancer sucks. Suffering a rare form of bone marrow cancer, pastor Jason Micheli knows that. Even the treatment of chemotherapy, bringing your body close to death, is grimly ironic. But Micheli also knows that the promise of Easter makes hope possible. And approaching cancer as fodder for some bowel-busting humor helps, too. Unlike other cancer books, Micheli's reflections are not trite. Instead, he writes honestly about being stricken with stage-serious cancer in the midst of a promising career and raising two young children. He struggles with his commitment to the God who, as he writes, 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 boys-is so important that 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.
