Why am I still here? Where is God in all this? Can anything good come out of my suffering? How should I live differently now?
In his new book, Living in Bonus Time, two-time cancer survivor, Alec Hill, grapples with profound questions related to survivor’s guilt, the role and nature of God, and what kind of life emerges after a close call with death.
A man of faith and former president of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, Alec does not dodge the tough questions or emotions brought on by battling a rare and challenging cancer. He knows what it is like to sit in the waiting room of a treatment center. He also knows that trauma can be transformative. “How we live in bonus time matters,” Alec writes. And with tender honesty, he gives vision for a life of faith, humility, and gratitude.
Whether you are a cancer survivor, caregiver, family member, organ donor, or physician—Alec speaks to our innate desire to live well, to leave a legacy, and to embrace unanticipated seasons of grace. As one reviewer stated, “Alec teaches us all how to live.”
Dessert, coffee, and tea will be provided.
