A wonderfully written and easy to read book that once again shows the awesome power of God! Not only did I enjoy the various miraculous stories that Crandall relays, but I loved watching his own faith journey and realized that he asks a lot of the same questions I have, and do! A very real and raw look at a faith journey, with the reader seeing anger, joy, frustration, doubt, confidence and all other human emotion - all in one man!
One thing that really impressed me with Dr. Crandall is that yes, he is a Christian and very aware of the supernatural healing that comes from faith in Jesus, however he does not toss out the importance of medicine. He sees it as the two intermingling. This is a much different stance than many "faith-healers" of late, that say "you only need to pray, not take medicine, see a doctor, etc". I also appreciate that Crandall explains that not everyone is "miraculously healed and ultimately healing is decided upon God and His will for that particular person".
A very inspirational read for anyone who needs a "faith-lift" and wants to be encouraged. I highly recommend this book.
