At 38 years old, Vernon Brewer had a wonderful wife, three amazing daughters, and a career he loved. He also had cancer. When Vernon was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his world fell apart. Why is the story of how his battle with cancer drew him closer to God and helped him find his calling.

But Why is about more than Vernon’s story. It’s about how you can endure the “why” moments in your own life. As you read through this book, you will be inspired, comforted, and challenged. You will travel on a journey from pain to healing … from questions to answers … from emptiness to purpose.

When a trial comes your way, I cannot tell you that you will have all your questions answered. What I can tell you is that you will have good days, bad days, painful days, strong days, weak days, and encouraging days. But you will never have days alone.
— Vernon Brewer, Why?
