book review: everything happens for a reason and other lies I've loved

title: everything happens for a reason and other lies I've loved
author: Kate Bowler
publisher: Random House
date: 2018

Kate Bowler is an assistant professor at Duke Divinity School, a researcher of the "prosperity gospel", and grew up in Manitoba near Mennonite communities.

And then she was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer.

"Everything Happens For A Reason And Other Lies I've Loved" is her story. A story of pain, disappointment, humour, joy, friendship, sickness, dying and living.

"Everything Happens For A Reason And Other Lies I've Loved" is well worth reading. The appendices at the end are must reading for anyone who has someone with friends or family that are dying - i.e. all of us: 

  1. Absolutely never say this to people experiencing terrible times: a short list 
  2. Give this a go, see how it works: a short list
