Anthony Maranise, two-time CBU alum (Religion & Philosophy ’11, MACS ’17), instructor at the University of Memphis, and 20-year cancer survivor, has been on a local press tour to promote his newest book, Cross of a Different Kind: Cancer & Christian Spirituality. The book draws upon the richness of Christian spiritual theology with the aim of rejuvenating hope within and imparting eternal Truth to all persons who have been “touched” by cancer in any of its wicked forms. In an act of great generosity, Anthony has pledged that 100% of all proceeds from sales of the book will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
