In this inspiring story of his fifty-year career as a healer, Dr. Brand probes the mystery of pain and reveals its importance. As an indicator that lets us know something is wrong, pain has a value that becomes clearest in its absence.The Gift of Pain looks at what pain is and why we need it. Together, the renowned surgeon and award-winning writer Philip Yancey shed fresh light on a gift that none of us want and none of us can do without.

From the Publisher:

Pain is nothing that most of us would count as a blessing. But his fifty-year career working with leprosy patients in India and the U.S. convinced Dr. Paul Brand that pain is one of God's great gifts to us. As an indicator that tells us something is wrong, pain has a value that becomes clearest in its absence. Those who feel no pain reap terrible consequences. In The Gift Nobody Wants, Philip Yancey and Dr. Brand look at pain--what it is, and why we need it if we're to live life fully. "This is no dry-as-dust philosophical discussion of pain; rather, it's a vital, flesh-and-blood accountfine reading for anyone."

From the Author:

Philip Yancey has a knack for tackling the tough questions—for articulating the knotty issues of faith, the nitty-gritty realities of being Christian. These five Gold Medallion Award-winning books are vintage Yancey, exploring topics common to us all
