Twenty-five years in the ER could become a résumé for despair, but for bestselling author Dr. Robert D. Lesslie it's a foundation for inspiring stories of everyday "angels"—friends, nurses, doctors, patients, even strangers who offer love, help, and support in the midst of trouble.

"The ER is a difficult and challenging place to be. Yet the same pressures and stresses that make this place so challenging also provide an opportunity to experience some of life's greatest wonders and mysteries." Dr. Lesslie illuminates messages of hope while sharing fast-paced, captivating stories about

  • discovering lessons from the ER frontline
  • watching everyday miracles unfold
  • holding onto faith during tragedy and triumph
  • embracing the healing balm of hope

For anyone who enjoys true stories of the wonders of the human spirit, this immensely popular book is a reminder that hope can turn emergencies into opportunities and trials into demonstrations of God's grace.

About the Author:

Bestselling author Dr. Robert Lesslie is a physician with more than 30 years of experience in fast-paced, intense ER environments. He is now the co-owner and medical director of two urgent-care facilities. He has written many books (including  Angels in the ER—over 200,000 copies sold) as well as newspaper and magazine columns and human-interest stories. He and his wife, Barbara, live in South Carolina.

Review:

"People caring for people. Compassion and lovingkindness in difficult circumstances. This is the medicine we need the most, and it is administered on every page of Angels in the ER, a chronicle of mankind at its best."
Richard Thomas, film, television, and stage actor, "John-Boy" on The Waltons and host of It's a Miracle



"Angels in the ER is hard to put down. You are right there with Dr. Lesslie in every circumstance, and each situation shows the spiritual dimension of life and death in a way most of us will never experience on our own. I can only compare the demand for moment-to-moment decision-making with my time on the basketball court. I enjoyed every story."
Bobby Jones, co-founder 2XSALT, four-time NBA All-Star, and member of the 1983 World Champion Philadelphia 76ers



"Intelligent, insightful, professional, honest, compassionate...personal stories that allow the reader to view the patient from the mind and heart of the physician...

"In an age when patients are viewed as social security numbers, Dr. Lesslie recovers the fading image of a caring doctor for whom the patient is center stage. We are left with the impression that angels belong to our lives, both in and out of emergency rooms. That is a conviction worth holding, and this is a book worth reading and rereading...If I ever land in an emergency room, I hope Dr. Lesslie is there waiting for me."
Randall T. Ruble, president, Erskine College and Seminary



"We meet an amazing cast of characters who come through the doors of a South Carolina hospital emergency room. Professional wrestlers, distraught mothers, gunshot victims, travelers from off the interstate highway...just to name a few. But Robert Lesslie is also there, a faithful, empathetic physician with a heart for compassion and a keen eye for the presence of God in the midst of human need."
Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
