Dr. Lester Savage faced life and death every day of his 33 years he spent as a cardiovascular surgeon.He pioneered the first coronary bypass surgery. He has provided sacrificial care for each and every patient. With the lives of his patients in his hands, he discovered that his skill as a surgeon was only as successful as his patients will to live. For him surgery was more than a scientific exercise - it was a powerful spiritual experience hat brought patient and surgeon face to face with God.
IN this book he and 10 of his patients intimately share the raw emotion they experienced as they faced life and death.
Dr. SAvage challenged them to think about what they would do when they recovered from surgery. Each one discovered their true values and priorities by opening their hearts to God. You will learn thru them the 3 eternal truths that lead to true happiness.
A very moving book, inspiring and will make you really look at what your true values are. You may have never been faced with life or death but you can experience thru each of the patients in the book and decide what is really important to you.
