Publisher's Summary

Dr. Dave Walker was a successful anesthesiologist with a special interest in the intensive care unit (ICU). Disillusioned with God after a series of tragedies, he was living for himself and his work. Yet he longed for more than just physical healing for his patients, which set him on a quest to find a God who cared. 

After a dramatic encounter, he started praying with his patients. Suddenly things happened beyond anything he could have imagined. Patients were healed miraculously; others experienced Jesus bringing comfort and peace; and still others felt the power of God's love in the face of tragedy.

Perhaps not for all, but I loved it!

An anecdotal history of an anesthesiologist from South Africa who also traveled to some Muslim countries, and carried his beliefs with him. For the most part, each chapter is a story of a different patient, with not all of them ending in glory or healing... But each is reassuring in its’ own way.

Excellent book.

The author narrates his own book with an awesome South African accent. Very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Inspiring, Comforting, Boosts Faith

The narrator, Dr. Walker, was excellent as he told his own story about his life and how his prayers for patients and family were answered. This book helped me understand that God doesn't always answer our prayers in the way we think they should be answered, but He is always there to comfort us and show us the good in everything. I liked his wife's positive nature during her illness, and how God blessed her. I don't reread books very often, but I will listen to this book again.

Inspirational!

Dr Walker does an excellent job of sharing his experiences, some overt and some subtle deeds of God's work.The biggest lesson this book has left with me, is that we need to have faith and trust God and His plan.

The only critique I have is that the final mix of audio isn't great. It feels like there were edits after the fact and that they were merely inserted rather than being refined for an even read at a consistent audio level. It didn't stop me from finishing the book, but did frustrate me along the way. This is a technical issue though, Dr Walker's performance was more than satisfactory.

Walking Through the Valley

Jesus walks with us through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. God is faithful. If we seek Him, we will find Him. The doctor quotes many verses, like 'Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.'.
Sometimes, God cures in a supernatural way - and Dr. Walker - relates some of the miracles and challenges of the ICU. It is an encouraging book to read and hear.

An amazing God

Dave Walker tells his story.
He shared it all, not trying to
cover up his own weaknesses as well as strengths. We don’t know how God works or why He heals some and not others. The author does not try to explain away this circumstance, but does tell of God’s deep and lasting blessings through the suffering. God’s love and compassion are real and on display here. Heart warming. Heart changing.

Beautiful Inspirational Story of Prayer & God’s Love

I very much enjoyed this book and the fact that the author read it. His life showed the before and after of a man who was living without Christ, and one full devoted to Him. So many powerful storys centered around his prayers and how God effected others through them. Many brought tears to my eyes. I’m reminded I need to pray much more than I do.

Puts You To Sleep

While there were some good stories, the author’s voice was very monotonous and unexciting. He skips from topic to topic too quickly and without good segues. And most confusing of all, Chapters 14 and 16 are exactly the same. We’re there no editors?

Excellent audio book!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. He is articulate and inspiring without being patronising. You can feel the emotion of his life experiences , which brought laughter and tears to me which very rarely happens.
I would recommend this audio book whole heartedly to anyone that is trying to look into spiritualism . It’s not pushy on religion, it’s just factually related to his own personal experiences with ‘God’ during his work as a physician .

A story which grows on you!

The story is truly inspirational!

The reader’s voice could get monotonous , but remember he is the author- not a reader specially chosen by Audible.

Better not to prepare the dinner whilst listening- at least for the first few chapters.....it could make you queasy!

As a Christian, it challenged me. As a non believer- it is early worth listening to!
