Renowned cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall IV was a Christian who kept his faith and his profession mostly separate when he first encountered a man named Jeff Markin. Jeff had collapsed during a massive heart attack at the entrance of the emergency room, and forty-three minutes later he was dead. He had been shocked repeatedly several times with defibrillator paddles but his heartbeat had flatlined. As a nurse prepared Jeff’s body for the morgue, Dr. Crandall obeyed a compelling yet mysterious urge to pray for the man even though he had already been declared dead. He asked the ER physician to shock the patient one more time. The physician reluctantly obeyed and a perfect heartbeat appeared on the monitor. Jeff Markin, now a Christian, is alive and healthy today. And Dr. Crandall, who has experienced worldwide recognition because of this miracle and others, no longer keeps his faith and profession separate. He has become a man with a thriving healing ministry through prayer as well as a world-class medical practice. Dr. Crandall cares deeply not only about his patients’ physical condition, but also about their spiritual condition. He speaks nationally and internationally about his work with the suffering and the awe-inspiring ways God performs dramatic healings even in the twenty-first century.

This is a Wonderful book of love and loss. This book will make you cry and rejoice. It lets you know that God is still is the miracle working business.. I think if you purchase this book you will not be disappointed.

This is one of the few books I listened to all the way through. If you are a Christian, this book will inspire and encourage you to experience more than just attending church on Sunday and living the rest of the week as you please. The story of Jeff Markin is not the main story in this book. It is the story of the Crandall family's faith journey. The story of a man who keeps his faith separate from his daily life and how God moves in to shake up his world and change that life forever. I enjoyed the book, but I'm not one to be liberal with rating a book with 5 stars unless I find it extraordinary. Would I recommend it? Hmmm...maybe. Enjoyed the narrator. Nice, pleasant voice.
A Christian voice that was honest and amazing!
A doctor that went from a hum drum Christian belief in God to being totally transformed by God's power and faith in the holy spirit!
