Hoping for More:
Having Cancer, Talking Faith, and Accepting Grace
a story of a young religion professor with a stage IV cancer diagnosis
and a lousy prognosis for the future. Amid the grief and the grace of
her fractured life, this theologian -- who is also a wife, a mother,

arise when faith and suffering collide.
