Dr. Kent and Amber Brantly moved with their children to war-torn Liberia in the fall of 2013 to provide medical care for people in great needto help replace hopelessness with hope. When, less than a year later, Kent contracted the deadly Ebola virus, hope became what he and Amber needed too.
When Kent received the diagnosis, he was already alone and in quarantine in the Brantly home in Liberia. Amber and the children had left just days earlier on a trip to the United States. Kents personal battle against the horrific Ebola began, and as thousands of people worldwide prayed for his life, a miraculous series of events unfolded.
Called for Life tells the riveting inside story of Kent and Ambers call to serve their neighbors, as well as Kents fight for life with Ebola and Ambers struggle to support him from half-a-world away. Most significantly, Called for Life reminds us of the risk, the honor, and the joy to be known when God and others are served without reservation.
Ebola threatened his life but God had other plans. The miracle story of Kent and Amber Brantly inspires everyone to serve other and make the most of life's experiences.
Dr. Kent and Amber Brantly (with David Thomas) tell of Dr. Brantly's near-death encounter with the Ebola virus in Liberia. The first American diagnosed during the 2014 outbreak, Dr. Brantly's ordeal--including his controversial evacuation to and hospitalization in the United States--received worldwide media attention. Interspersed in the account is the full story of how both Kent and his wife, Amber, sought to serve others in the name of Christ in Liberia. Then, when tragedy struck--as thousands, perhaps millions of people worldwide prayed for his life--miraculous events unfolded that resulted in Dr. Brantly's flight to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta...and an eventual clean bill of health.
him that, he smiled and said, It wasnt that great for me either! But Kent gives
God the credit for saving his life and surviving the deadly Ebola virus that infected
him while serving others in the name of Jesus. Dr. Brantly and his wife, Amber,
went obediently to Liberia to serve with Samaritans Purse as medical missionaries,
and were the recipients of prayers from around the world as they battled an attack
that threatened their future. The world watched as Kent was successfully trans ported back to the United States from Africa. International media outlets captured
his every step as he walked from the ambulance into Atlantas Emory University
Hospital, where he found physical restorationa miracle from God. You will be
riveted by this extraordinary couple who are called for life to serve the Lord Jesus
Christthe Great Physician!" Franklin Graham, president and CEO, Samaritans Purse
and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
"When hope seems dim, Called for Life reminds us of the limitless possibilities of
a God- driven life. Dr. Brantlys story inspires us to stay strong in the unexpected
crises of life, to be encouraged to recall Gods promises, to be challenged to
examine our own commitment to Gods call on our lives." Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author
"Compelling, factual, and emotional, Called for Life draws readers to reflect on their own journeys to faith in Christ and encourages them to trust God in the
crises of life." Nancy Writebol, SIM missionary to Liberia and fellow Ebola survivor
"Kent and his wife, Amber, have truly lived by the phrase When the going gets
tough, the tough go back to their calling. Their great compassion for the sick and
brokenchoosing to suffer alongside them even in the face of possible death
has touched and saved many lives. I am thrilled to see the Brantlys share their amazing story in print, and I know it will inspire and challenge you to find your place in Gods calling upon your life." Dr. Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker
"Called for Life invites all of us behind the curtain of the news stories and press
releases and into the Brantlys lives during the most trying of times. Their love
for each other, their faith and courage, as well as the strength and support they received from their network of friends, family, and caregivers is heartwarming and inspiring. When we set out to just do what is right, this behind-the-news-flash story reminds all of us that we live in a global community, that we all have a role to play, and that all of us can make a difference, wherever we are and in whatever profession."
Lisa Hensley, virologist and deputy director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, Integrated Research Facility
"As you walk alongside them on their journey, Kent and Ambers poignant story
will touch your heart, move you to tears, strengthen your faith, and cause you to
trust God more." David Stevens, MD, MA (Ethics), CEO of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations
"Called for Life tells the rest of the storywhat went before, lay behind, and follows after the iconic images of a coverall clad figure gently stepping out of an ambulance and into an international spotlight. Kent and Amber have given us a glimpse inside their previously private world to uncover the roots of their genuine humility, tender love for each other, and deep compassion for their neighbors. Not all readers will fully resonate with their interpretations, but all will surely appreciate their candor, sensitivity, and sincerity,and the beauty, and suspense of a story well told." David McRay, MD, professor at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine
"There are many books about surviving illness, but this is a one-of-a-kind story.
What happens when ordinary Christian medical missionaries are caught up in an
extraordinary world crisis? Though I know the story, I found my heart pounding
as I turned the pages. And it turns out to be a tale not of disease, primarily, but of
calling, faith, and love. It is a story of a remarkable family, their community, and
their commitment to a hurting world and to God." Randy Harris, spiritual director and instructor, Abilene Christian University
"Knowing Kent and Amber personally, I can say that Called for Life is a deep and
honest testament to Gods working in the midst of suffering and crisis. Kent and
Ambers voices come through the pages in a very authentic way, and you will experience all Kents emotions as he walks through this journey. As an Ebola survivor myself, I wholeheartedly recommend this book." Rick Sacra, MD, SIM missionary
"Refreshingly, the Brantlys never give trite answers to complex questions like How
does God work in healing? or Why is there suffering in the world? Instead, what they give us is a story their story, and its one worth reading." Jonathan Storment, preaching minister at the Highland Church of Christ and co-author of Bringing Heaven to Earth
