David Stevens, M.D., an experienced medical missionary, takes us on "rounds" with the Great Physician and uses his professionally trained eye to observe scriptural snapshots of Jesus the Healer at work. From his bedside manner to his diagnostic expertise, and from his team practice to his on-call schedule, Dr. Stevens helps us see Dr. Jesus in a fresh, new light. Woven among the biblical stories are dramatic real-life accounts from Dr. Stevens's own experiences. In the midst of performing life-saving surgery in the back of a bouncing Land Rover, removing a barbed arrow from the spine of a boy, and treating hippo bites and lion maulings, we experience the tension, risks, and awesome wonder of what God does in seemingly impossible circumstances. He uses these illustrations to reinforce biblical insights into the ministry and character of Jesus while opening our eyes to the power of God. Dr. Stevens challenges us to a deeper spiritual commitment as we hear God's call to serve him with greater eagerness and to become his partner as he goes about his "practice" of healing hearts and souls and lives.
