Publisher's Description

From the pages of his bestselling book Gifted Hands, Dr. Ben Carson comes to life in this even more inspiring DVD. Instead of having to imagine the man and his world, you can actually see and hear Ben Carson at home with his family and watch his gifted hands during surgery. You can observe him encouraging school children to try to be all that they can be. And you can accompany him on his professional rounds at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. In 1987, Dr. Carson gained worldwide recognition and was featured on ABC’s 20/20for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head—an extremely complex and delicate operation that was five months in planning and twenty-two hours of actual surgery, involving a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. In this DVD you will meet these twins and other former patients along with members of their families. Previously in VHS, now in DVD format.

He and his wife, Candy, cofounded the Carson Scholars Fund (www.carsonscholars.org), a 501(c)3 established to counteract America's crisis in education by identifying and rewarding academic role models in the fourth through eleventh grades, regardless of race, creed, religion and socio-economic status, who also demonstrate humanitarian qualities.

Cecil Murphey, author of 112 books, has also assisted well-known personalities in writing their biographies.

    All African-Americans should get to know about this man. This is a Christian story as much as it is a story about a remarkable man.

    I volunteer at the Buffalo City Mission and was looking for a story that might inspire some of the homeless men that come to lunch on any given day. Although, most summer days, they don't hang around but during the colder months they are allowed to sit in the lounge after their meal and watch TV. This made me think that an inspirational DVD would be good for the soul.

    This was an interesting commentary about a truly remarkable man and his amazing story, BUT I accidentaly ordered this (from another online source)expecting to buy the actual movie. The Zondervna product is not the 90 minute movie.

    This is an excellent video! Since I have a grandson who may need brain surgery, I have special interest in Dr Ben Carson. This video brought many tears to my eyes.

    If this had a rating of TEN, that would be my choice. I've watched this 4 times in the last 4 days. It is thrilling, encouraging, heartwarming, wonderful! And it is about a real person, a doctor as far from arrogant as you can get! A believing, praying doctor growing up in a poor neighborhood, and his single mother who loved and believed him to uncommon courage and success. At a young age, he became the first neurosurgeon to ever surgically separate conjoined twins. Exciting! You will love it.
