Dr. Kent Brantly is responsible for one of the worst weeks of my life. When I told him that, he smiled and said, It wasn t 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 Samaritan s 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 Atlanta s Emory University Hospital, where he found physical restoration a miracle from God. You will be riveted by this extraordinary couple who are called for life to serve the Lord Jesus Christ the Great Physician! Franklin Graham, president and CEO, Samaritan s 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. Brantly s story inspires us to stay strong in the unexpected crises of life, to be encouraged to recall God s promises, to be challenged to examine our own commitment to God s 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 broken choosing 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 God s 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 Amber s 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 "C alled for Life tells the rest of the story what 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 God s working in the midst of suffering and crisis. Kent and Amber s voices come through the pages in a very authentic way, and you will experience all Kent s 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 it s one worth reading. Jonathan Storment, preaching minister at the Highland Church of Christ and co-author of Bringing Heaven to Earth"Vom Verlag:
Ebola threatened his life but God had other plans. The miracle story of Kent and Amber Brantly inspires everyone to serve others 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 hospitalisation 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. -Publisher
