Whether you or a loved one has been or is currently being treated for cancer, or suffering from any other affliction or temptation, these reflections from a cancer surgeon were written with someone like you in mind. God shines His face upon those who are afflicted, comforts and upholds them by His mighty and loving hand. For patients and physicians, this book is a must read! The Face of God contains the personal reflections of a busy cancer surgeon intimately involved in life and death decisions that could have devastating results for patient, family, and doctor alike. At one point during a practice spanning over forty-five years, he came to the realization that caring only for a patient's body was just not enough. William A. Nahhas, BSc, MD, FACOG, FACS, is a board-certified Gynecologic Oncologist, a specialist in the treatment of cancer of the female reproductive organs. In spite of sponsoring an active patient support group and numerous social activities, it was apparent that cancer treatment, whether successful or not, left an emptiness in the soul that only the Spirit of God could fill. However, working in a secular institution made it nearly impossible to communicate God's love and direct involvement in every aspect of patient care. These articles, which were distributed to patients over many years, became the vehicles through which God became a living, active participant in that care. In our otherwise secular world where trust in the sovereignty, love, and mercy of God is often ridiculed, not many physicians have had the courage to communicate these essential truths to patients in such an honest and heart-felt manner.
