Everything Happens For a Reason - Kate Bowler

Kate Bowler is just 35 when weight loss and stabbing stomach pains lead to a stage 4 cancer diagnosis.  A professor and a young wife and mother to a young son, she has to face the horrible prognosis, and in this small book teaches us about what it is to live one day at a time, and treasure the time with our loved ones.

I did enjoy her insights into living and love, but felt a lot of the book was about her studies looking at different religions, and mainly those who used their religious teaching for monetary gain to live in big houses and drive flash cars.  3/5

It's disturbing that cancer is afflicting even the young these days. This is a terrible sign of the wrecked environment, I fear. The book sounds like it wanted to be two different things.
