Kate Bowler's audiobook is a gift. She is only in her 30s--with a wonderful husband, a toddler son, and a career teaching at Duke Divinity School--when she is diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. Despite the fact that she grew up in a Christian tradition that emphasizes that faith leads to prosperity, it's clear that she neither deserves cancer nor that prayer will cure it. Joyfully exclaiming that she has "the magic cancer," Bowler recounts how she is accepted as a genetic match for a clinical trial and undergoes chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Not only is her life miraculous but so is her performance of this audiobook. She is so genuine, likable, and hilarious--she starts swearing for Lent and then stops at Easter. May Kate Bowler live long (and prosper!). A.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
