Almost everyone diagnosed with cancer will endeavor to fight it. As a cancer survivor, Earl Blackburn encourages everyone diagnosed with cancer to fight it. Although he thinks medical treatment is important, the fight he is primarily interested in is spiritual. In How Can I Honor Christ in Fighting Cancer?, Blackburn shows how this spiritual fight, conducted in a manner that honors Christ the Creator and Lord, will aid the cancer patient’s medical fight tremendously. Through Blackburn’s experience, a series of practical lessons derived from it, and from Scripture, you can better understand what a godly fight against cancer looks like.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that what the church needs to do most all is “to begin herself to live the Christian life. If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings. They would say, ‘What is the secret of this?’” As Christians, one of our greatest needs is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the beauty of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of the triune God. With this goal in mind, this series of booklets treats matters vital to Christian experience at a basic level. Each booklet addresses a specific question in order to inform the mind, warm the affections, and transform the whole person by the Spirit’s grace, so that the church may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

“Most of us either have had cancer or have had a close family member or friend who was diagnosed with cancer. In light of this, Christians need to be prepared to face cancer and to cope in a biblical manner. Pastor Blackburn’s book is a useful pastoral tool to help us chart these waters. If you have cancer or the opportunity to minister to someone who does, this book is an invaluable resource.” — Joseph A. Pipa Jr., president, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
