Jewish Book of Comfort

Cancer was regarded as a disease to which “the psychically defeated, the
inexpressive, the repressed” are particularly prone. As I reflect on the book, I find
it fascinating to see how saturated this society is with the need to blame, to find
fault. It is as if ... Moreover, Judaism does not encourage me to pray for a
suspension or modification of the laws of nature. Iudaism's ... prayers. Jewish
faith is not magic.

This book explores how Jesus taught us to pray when we need an answer from God right now. There’s a bold way to pray that receives today what God was intending to do tomorrow. All you need is a close friendship with God. When you have relational equity with God, you can pray with such audacity that others are like, “You shouldn’t talk to God like that!” But it’s precisely to this kind of illegal praying that Jesus surprisingly invites us. You’re a friend of God—so ditch propriety, forget the rules, throw caution to the wind, and pray illegal prayers.

Startled by the unexpected diagnosis of a rare and often-terminal cancer, JoAnn A. Post chronicles the course of her treatment in Songs in My Head, a journal written both for her own sake, and for friends, family, and colleagues. Each of her twelve chemotherapy treatments is presented as a verse of the songs that hummed in her heart during and at the close of treatment. Inspiration and encouragement come through simple events like the return of a lost dog ("Chasing Maggie") and complicated events like allergic reactions to chemotherapy ("A False Summit"). The journal closes with an ancient Jewish ritual of thanksgiving, the Birkat HaGomel, which places the author's suffering in the context of the suffering and healing of God's people through the centuries. While writing from the perspective of faith, the author neither offers easy solutions, nor glosses over the difficult questions posed by illness and disability. During a difficult time she writes with hope, humor, and honesty. This journal is written for those living with cancer, and for those who love and care for them.

There has recently been much interest in the relationship between science and religion, and how they combine to give us a 'binocular' perspective on things. One important phenomenon which has been neglected in recent work is the concept of spiritual healing. This edited collection explores a variety of approaches to spiritual healing from different religious points of view, identifying both what it is and how it works. The authors also explore the biological and psychological processes, open to scientific enquiry, through which healing may be mediated. As such, this book indicates the central proposition that religious and scientific perspectives answer different questions about healing, and there is not necessarily any conflict between them.
