Publisher's Summary

A perfect blend of medical drama and spiritual insight, Gray Matter is a fascinating account of Dr. David Levy's decision to begin asking his patients if he could pray for them before surgery. Some are thrilled. Some are skeptical. Some are hostile, and some are quite literally transformed by the request.
Each chapter focuses on a specific case, opening with a detailed description of the patient's diagnosis and the procedure that will need to be performed, followed by the prayer request. From there, listeners follow as Dr. Levy performs the operation, and then we wait - right alongside Dr. Levy, the patients, and their families - to see the final results.
Dr. Levy's musings on what successful and unsuccessful surgical results imply about God, faith, and the power of prayer are honest and insightful. As we see him come to his ultimate conclusion that, no matter what the results of the procedure are, "God is good," we cannot help but be truly moved and inspired.

Dr. Levy's story was amazing! His manner of seeing patients as human beings, is refreshing! The love and caring that he shows by helping them reach a relationship with God is truly inspiring! As a pediatric nurse of 28 years, I also pray for my patients, for their healing and prior to procedures, even when I am performing them, say starting an IV...I always put my hands in God's hands, and then thank Him for His help and guidance! I had my never thought of praying "with" my patients and their families. This book has enlightened me of the possibility of assisting these people in finding their relationship with God. On a more personal note, I also have an opportunity to grow closer to God by forgiveness. I, too, have felt physical illnesses, that I have not been able to find medical reasons for. I will be using Dr. Levy's approach as a guide in asking for forgiveness. My eyes and heart have been opened to the possibility that therein is where my problems lie. Thank you, so much, Dr. Levy for sharing your experiences with us! May God continue blessing you in your life and work, both medically and spiritually!
