I've Seen the End of You: A Neurosurgeon's Look at Faith, Doubt, and the Things We Think We Know

SKU: C04266B


This gripping inspirational memoir grapples with the tension between faith and science—and between death and hope—as a seasoned neurosurgeon faces insurmountable odds and grief both in the office and at home.

Dr. W. Lee Warren, a practicing brain surgeon, assumed he knew most outcomes for people with glioblastoma, head injuries, and other health-care problems. Yet even as he tried to give patients hope, his own heart would sink as he realized, I've seen the end of you.

But it became far more personal when the acclaimed doctor experienced an unimaginable family tragedy. That's when he reached the end of himself.

Page-turning medical stories serve as the backdrop for a raw, honest look at how we can remain on solid ground when everything goes wrong and how we can find light in the darkest hours of life.

I've Seen the End of You is the rare book that offers tender empathy and tangible hope for those who are suffering. No matter what you're facing, this doesn't have to be the end. Even when nothing seems to makes sense, God can transform your circumstances and your life. And he can offer a new beginning.

Getting Real!

My own faith was built up as the author shared the answers he found while processing his doubts, feelings of anger and helplessness, etc. in his professional context. I appreciated that he was honest and real about the struggle to keep the faith!

Great book

I really loved this book. It was fascinating to see this believing surgeon integrate his faith, his home life and his work life, and how he integrated them. He persevered in seeking God for perspective on deep personal and professional experiences. I bought it for my daughter who is a nurse but you don't need a background in the health field to understand it and benefit from it.

I s God just?

This book is an excellent and intriguing investigation of the role of prayer when we already know God’s answer is NO! The author, having earned the right, leads the reader to sobering and reflective journeys and helps the reader grapple with the reader’s own doubts and thesis of prayer. This book should be read by anyone who has trouble justifying a good God who allows bad things to happen to good people — even tough we pray.
