Publisher's Description

2012 Christy Award finalist, Contemporary series category.
Andrew Jones was once one of the few surgeons in the world to have that rare, God-given ability called The Touch. But after failing to save his young fiancée, Faith, at the scene of a car accident, Jones abandons his gift and shuns the operating room.

Lara Blair owns a Chicago-based biomedical engineering company developing a surgical tool that will duplicate precisely the movement of a surgeon’s hands, reducing or eliminating failed surgical procedures. Lara has pursued the best surgeons in the world to test this surgical tool, and all of them have failed.

As Lara pursues Jones’s skill for her project, Jones’s stubborn resistance cracks, and he begins to open up to her about the wounds that still haunt him. But when Jones discovers the urgency behind Lara’s work, he must choose to move beyond his past. As each is forced to surrender secret fears, they are bonded together through the lives of the people Jones serves and by the healing secret that Faith left behind.

Randall Wallace's The Touch is a well-written romantic novella filled with action and focused on the theme of getting in touch with God. Andrew Jones, a young surgeon, is known for his skills in the operating room. Some even say he has "the touch." Tragedy strikes and Dr. Jones tries to forget about his God-given gift. However, this becomes very difficult when he meets Lara Blair, a biomedical engineer who wants him to test a surgical device that her company has developed to eliminate human error in the operating room. Dr. Jones must find out the real reason for Lara’s relentless efforts to convince him, but at the same time he must also find the connection with the "divine touch."

As the characters interact with each other through the story, we watch them change into completely different people from what they were in the beginning. Wallace puts emphasis on the theme of connecting with God as described in 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18. He also uses a third-person objective point of view to grab our attention and draw us into the book. This book is unpredictable. Just when you think you know what's going to happen next, the author throws a surprise, compelling you to keep reading. Overall, this is a solid book. I enjoyed reading it and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an entertaining story but at the same time wants to learn a moral lesson. I promise you, once you start reading it you will not want to stop. – Djamina Esperance, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I think it was the fact that this this is the author of Braveheart which made me approach this book the wrong way. I expected a compelling, fast-paced story from the get-go. It took me while to realize this was a different story. Once I decided to let this story stand alone and allowed it to lead me gently through the storyline it was telling, I was captivated. I love Appalachia and the setting of this expert high-tech doctor in this back-woods poor country was intriguing and a great way to develop the tension. I didn't get the twist and won't give that jewel away in this review. Safe it to say, this is a story worth reading. But read it for the story it is...a story with a pace and message all its own.

    The Touch by Randall Wallace. What a great book. This book is about a surgeon who has wonderful God given talent but is dealing with the loss of his fiance. It also is about a woman at the forefront of medical research. How their lives intersect and what unfolds is wonderful. Sometimes this book moves a little slowly but the author paints the scenery of Applachia beautifully.

    Doctor Andrew loses a loved one and refuses to do surgery again. Lara owns a research company that is developing a surgical tool and needs a surgeon to test the tool. When she hears about Andrew's surgical skill, she wants to work with him at her company, but he refuses.

    I thought this book was interesting. Medical research has come quite far in recent years, and this book shows how one tool can help save lives.
