A Step Beyond Fear: Spiritual Strategies For Fighting Cancer
Those staring down cancer can learn from Bill Huff’s experience.
In his words: “The poems and vignettes are written to help you
create strategies to motivate your soul and spirit as you take on
this mighty battle.”
This sounds practical, and it is, but as you read you will discover a
message much more primal. You will experience the voice of one
who is writing from the depths of pain and struggle, of one who
is boldly stepping into the arena to do battle with “the beast.”
Bill chooses the language of “battle,” because for him “the word
journey is just too wimpy.”
And there is nothing wimpy about the message you will find.
Right from the opening words, Bill makes it clear what you are
up against and the strength you not only will need but already
have to face the uncertain future that comes from having cancer.
His words point to an expansive openness to the presence of
God from whom the powers of hope, humanity, love, goodness,
and mercy emanate.
Bill kept the chapters short and sharp, knowing from his almost
eleven-year battle that time and focus are limited when it comes
to facing such adversity.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to A Breath of Hope Lung
Foundation for lung cancer research.
"Bill Huff has penned a small book with a big message. Cancer does not have the final word! Through poetry and prose with some humor sprinkled throughout, A Step Beyond Fear offers practical wisdom and healing words for those facing cancer. This book is also a must read for those family members, friends, and clergy who are accompanying those battling cancer."
