A personal invitation to Christ
4 stars By Hoa, Nov 07 2016
Australian pastor David McDonald relates his deeply moving and personal experience of his diagnosis and treatment for cancer. He shares the physical, emotional and spiritual turmoil it caused him, including as a minister. Avoiding the trap of becoming self-absorbed, this autobiographical work moves quickly to point readers to the true source of hope - Christ. McDonald demonstrates the hopelessness of alternative sources of hope, argues for the truth of the Christian faith, and spurs readers on towards Jesus. A valuable read for those who are Christians and those who are not.

hope beyond cure indeed
5 stars By Steve N, Aug 21 2016
I had been reading this book to help me come to grips with cancer and grief, and providentially, I met David McDonald (the author) at a conference. The book has blessed me deeply. David's care for me in person blessed me doubly. I plan to buy a stack of these books and pass them round to friends and family - because it is honest, gospel-centred, pastorally wise, and so clear where our hope must (and can) lie.

A must Read Book for everyone-even those without Cancer!
5 stars By Angel, Apr 29 2014
This book is a must read for anyone regardless of faith, denomination, or even whether a person is a believer or not.  And is definitely a book to read even if you haven't got cancer or don't know anyone who does.

It is a book for anyone who is going through or has gone through any form of pain, loss or suffering whether it be emotional, physical or mental-so basically any human being.  

It is a very easy book to read with not many pages, relatively big writing, and easy language to understand.

It is a straight to the point, a "no mumble jumble book" that explores how even a person of great faith (i.e.. Pastor David McDonald) questions his faith and whether God and Jesus even exists when faced with such life changing devastating news of being diagnosed with terminal incurable cancer.  The questions and doubts David goes through are ones that anyone who has gone through or seen suffering questions.  

I haven't managed to complete reading a book since my son was born 9 years ago.  Hope Beyond Cure is the first book I have started and finished in over 9 years- that is how good it is.  I now plan to buy many copies to give as gifts to people!

A deeply personal and honest look at what it's like to be a Christian living with cancer. I couldn't put it down. It's a must read for anyone on a cancer journey.
