From the Hornby Collection series comes Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Peniel, a sensitive account of a young woman minister’s battle with cancer. This is a dramatic life experience; the cancer victim recounts every experience as it occurs. Its intimacy, its directness, and its honesty account for its tremendous impact. Peniel is an experience that requires listeners to evaluate their own life expectancy, with deep consideration for the power of religious faith. Peniel, meaning literally “the face of God,” is a program that merits a Peabody Award for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
