Raising the Dead A Doctor Encounters The Miraculous by Chauncey W. Crandall

Product Description

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 I Can Tell You:

In keeping with my own rule of 100% honesty on any and all reviews I participate in here is my review.

I took me a little over 5 days to read this book. It is a miraculous story, one that includes a parents worst nightmare but it was hard for me to get into.

Dr. Chauncey Crandall and his family are amazing people, the story of their faith is beautiful. Reading about how they never lost Faith and how the bible and prayer brought them through some of their darkest hours and how Dr. Crandall affects people with God's word has me considering revisiting my own bible study.

People who have faith in God's word and believe in Divine intervention will love this book. For me, it was too technical, medical and biblical. However, in reading the reviews of others who loved this book, I believe there is a calling for it and there are people who will not be able to put this book down.

I would prefer to hear Dr. Crandall's wife's side of the story.
