Surprised by God [Paperback]

With Pancreatic Cancer







Paperback: Non-fiction, Autobiographic, 221 pages, for Young Adults and Up

"Don't tell me about a God who can't. Let me tell you about a God who can! He has, and He will!" —Susan D. Smith

This is the story of how God carried Susan through cancer to total remission. This is not a preachy self-help book or a tidy little novel. You are about to read the honest blogs of a regular believer who lived through some gut-wrenching tribulations. These journal entries reveal the good, the bad, and the ugly. Above it all, the unifying thread is the amazing grace and wonderful help of our great Savior and God-the Lord Jesus Christ.

Non-fiction, Autobiographic, 221 pages, for Young Adults and Up
