New Bible study focuses on cancer communitycomment (0)

After struggling through her own battle with cancer, Karen Allen, a member of First Baptist Church, Birmingham, in Birmingham Baptist Association, knew her faith-filled victory had to be shared.
And what better way to make that happen than through a self-published six-week Bible study about “Confronting Cancer With Faith.”
Interlacing Scripture and biblical parallels with personal insight and stories, Allen said she hopes the book is an opportunity “to reach out to the cancer community and bring encouragement, comfort and hope.”
“We are all, in some way, affected by this devastating disease,” said Allen, who had worked in cancer research for nearly 15 years before being diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago. “This book addresses that problem head on in the form of a Bible study.”
Allen said she hopes the study offers readers an outlet to develop and grow in their faith during a difficult time.“This study ... pertains not only to cancer patients but also to loved ones and medical personnel — to give them insight into what’s going on through the process and to provide a way to help channel the focus to be on God and to grow in faith.”
