This comprehensive, ground-breaking title presents, in simplifying style, the driving and organizing principles of cancer, making this multidimensional, highly complex disease easily understandable for readers. Developed out of the renowned author’s many years of teaching a widely popular, several-hundred-student college course, this 12-chapter book begins with an account of the history of cancer as a medical and public health problem, as well as the major milestones and setbacks in the ongoing quest to understand the wide variety of cancers that continue to impact the world. Subsequent chapters then address pathogenesis, incidence and mortality statistics, risk factors, causal factors, screening challenges and victories, treatment strategies, and disease prevention approaches. This wealth of clinical information is further supplemented with socioeconomic discussions on the financial, social, ethical, technological, regulatory, political, and logistical challenges that limit progress in cancer research. A soon to be gold-standard text that thoroughly and expertly describes cancer as a composite, adaptive system, Cancer: The Enemy from Within equips and empowers all undergraduate students and graduate students to better understand this continually perplexing disease. Clinicians across all disciplines may also find this work of great interest.

This book is the continuation of my book series from my blog which is based on more than 365 references in the Bible to fear, and dread and our response to them. St Pope John Paul II knew that our God encourages us to "Be Not Afraid" and told us so. To do this we must actively seek holiness and be in the presence of our Lord and talk to Him. I recommend you develop the habit of spending 10 to 15 minutes a day with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or if that is not available some other quiet place where you can be in the company of our Lord. Read the daily entry and reflect on it asking our Lord and His mother to talk to your heart and reveal to you the will of the Father and then DO IT.

This book celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the UK’s Science and Religion Forum by bringing together leading scientific and theological thinkers to reflect on the last four decades of the science-theology conversation and to chart new directions for its future. Through an engagement with some of the most recent developments in the sciences as diverse as quantum holism, theories of emergence, technology studies, and the sociology of religion, the book explores a broad range of pressing theological questions, such as: What is religion? What does it mean to be human? How can theology best respond to the ecological crisis? In addressing these questions, and many more, the contributors to this volume forge innovative models for the interrelation of science and religion, making this book a timely and valuable resource for all those interested in the future of the science-theology conversation.
