In his new book, Living in Bonus Time (InterVarsity Press, 2020), two-time cancer survivor Alec Hill grapples with profound questions related to loss of control, disappointment, God’s presence on dark days, and the role (and burdens) of caregivers.
A man of faith and former president of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, Alec does not dodge tough questions or the emotions brought on by battling through a bone marrow transplant. 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.”
Alec Hill is president emeritus of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA.
