When Deb confesses she has found a lump on her breast, twenty-three of her friends at Bible study are shocked. In what would become known as her trademark style, Deb states, "I think you all should feel it, so you know what it feels like in case you ever find one." With that first touch, the women are bonded in a way they could never have imagined.
In "Opus Magnificat," author Jennifer Roberts takes readers on her journey to find the miracle in her friend's cancer diagnosis. As the women pray for a miracle, they study their way through pivotal Bible study books by authors Tom Holladay, Beth Moore, David Jeremiah, and Tommy Newbury. They take to heart the words of 1 Corinthians 12:24-27 (KJV): "That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it."
"Opus Magnificat" will leave you laughing, crying, and inspired to take a close look at how you fit into the larger picture of Christianity. From the shores of Cape Cod to the lakes of upper New York, the women sojourn through stages of a terminal illness. From denial through anger to acceptance, Deb and her friends never lose hope.
