From the ghettos of Detroit to the surgery rooms of the renowned John Hopkins hospital, "Gifted Hands" succinctly chronicles Ben Carson's remarkable life and career. Firmly believing that God had gifted his hands with the capacity to bring about healing, Dr. Carson saved hundreds of lives and successfully performed complicated neurosurgeries that no one thought possible. Fully crediting his single mom with her consistent mantra of encouragement and dedication to his education, Carson worked hard, studied hard, and prayed hard to become the man that he remains today.
This book is a "must read!" I wish Dr. Carson Gods richest blessings as he continues to keep Him
first in his life. As many with that talent totally forget where the blessings come from and give themselves the credit instead of God where it belongs. My solute to Ben's Mom! She is an amazing woman of strength. I myself buried my head in studying in school to avoid the mocking that continued all through the grades. And its still hard to face some of the fellow students today. They try so hard to be nice, but they never made their wrongs right.
Such an inspiring story of the life of this amazing man. It makes you laugh and makes you cry as Dr Carson's life story unfolds. It just put another stamp of confirmation on the high esteem with which I regard this man who shares his faith as easily as he shares his vast medical knowledge. He binds it all together with a rare dose of common sense thinking and always is quick to give credit to others who influenced his life as well as thanks to God for his "gifted hands." A very special read!
