Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer... One Patient at a Time by David I. LevyA perfect blend of medical drama and spiritual insight, Gray Matter is a fascinating account of Dr. David Levys 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 patients diagnosis and the procedure that will need to be performed, followed by the prayer request. From there, readers get to look over Dr. Levys shoulder as he performs the operation, and then we wait--right alongside Dr. Levy, the patients, and their families--to see the final results. Dr. Levys musings on what successful and unsuccessful surgical results imply about God, faith, and the power of prayer are honest and insightful. As we watch 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.

When highly respected neurosurgeon Dr. David Levy decided to ask his patients whether he could pray with them prior to surgery, he had no idea what to expect. What if the surgery went poorly—who would be to blame? What if it went well—would God or science get the credit? But in the end, everyone—even the good doctor himself—was transformed by the experience. His articles have been published in a variety of neurosurgical journals, and he is an accomplished and engaging speaker and presenter.
A perfect blend of medical drama and spiritual insight, Gray Matter is a fascinating account of Dr. Some are thrilled. Some are skeptical. Some are hostile, and some are quite literally transformed by the request. David Levy's Gray Matter tells the story of how Levy, a practicing neurosurgeon, boldly bridges the gap between medicine and religion by praying with patients, nurses, and fellow doctors. The title Gray Matter not only refers to the grayish hue of brain tissue, but also refers to religion's ambiguous role in modern healthcare. Most doctors view religion as admission of weakness or superstition, so they trust in the power of surgery over the power of prayer.
I enjoyed this book from start to finish! David gave the reader an opportunity to see an unmasked piece of his professional career. We see the human side of a great neurologist when the pride exposed itself, or the fear surfaces. I was thrilled to see the "real" man behind the title. As one who's first desire had been to work in the medical field, I was thrilled to learn from him as well. As an author myself, I wish to commend Dr. Levy for opening up a piece of the neuroscience world for the reader to enjoy while holding the interest of the rest of the reading world!
