Raising The Dead by Chauncey W. Crandall IV, MD Review/Giveaway

On October 20, 2006, a middle-aged auto mechanic, Jeff Markin, walked into the emergency room at the Palm BeachGardensHospital and collapsed from a massive heart attack. Forty minutes later he was declared dead. After filling out his final report, the supervising cardiologist, Dr. Chauncey Crandall, started out of the room. "Before I crossed its threshold, however, I sensed God was telling me to turn around and pray for the patient," Crandall explained.

With that prayer and Dr. Crandall's instruction to give the man what seemed one more useless shock from the defibrillator, Jeff Markin came back to life--and remains alive and well today.

But how did a Yale-educated cardiologist whose Palm Beach practice includes some of the most powerful people in American society, including several billionaires, come to believe in supernatural healing?

The answers to these questions compose a story and a spiritual journey that transformed Chauncey Crandall.

What a fabulous book! I have to say, after very recently losing my father, this book really hit close to home for me.  I know God's love for us is with us in life and in death.  His love we take with us everywhere and to see how strong the faith is for some and how this doctor inspires people is beyond words.    This book is far more than a collection of miracle stories -- it's a faith builder and one of the best books out there I've read that do that.  I highly recommend this book!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
