Overview

Twenty–five years in the ER could become a resume for despair, but for Dr. Robert D. Lesslie it’s a foundation for inspiring tales of angels who are friends, nurses, doctors, patients, strangers, or those unseen but clearly present “others” in the midst of trial.

“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 captivating stories about:

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

For anyone who enjoys stories of the miraculous, this gathering is a reminder that hope turns emergencies into opportunities and each trial into a demonstration of God’s grace.

I just finished this book today, and I found it very hard to put down. It was very enlightening and also heartwrenching. Dr. Lesslie has an interesting way of drawing the reader in. I already bought another one of his books and I can't wait to read it.

I have had the privilege to work with Dr. Lesslie during the summer at Camp Joy many times and the same care and compassion that he has for special needs campers is shown here is this GREAT book. The more I read it the less I want to put it down. I plan on passing this book around to many of my fellow teachers.

Working in an Emergency Room is stressful, but also rewarding. Robert Lesslie, MD is an ER doctor in South Carolina. In his book, Angels In the ER, he shares the many stories he has witnessed. Among the many stories, the reader will discover victims of gunshot wounds, vacationers¿ side-tracked by a brain tumor, and those that come in on a regular basis hoping for a warm meal. Each will bring a smile to your lips and tears to your eyes. The people that work in the ER are unique. Virginia has the appearance of a heart of steel, but underneath that exterior lays a heart of compassion. Dr. Lesslie has a humble demeanor, caring for his patients and getting to know the real angels of the ER. Dr. Lesslie writes in an easy-to-read conversational style. He drew me into this book from the first story and held me captive until the last. He combines wit and drama to describe what really happens in the ER. He begins each story with a scripture. This book could be used as a devotional, but I read it in one sitting, I couldn¿t lay it down. Each story led me to the next one. There are many angels that are unrecognized. Thank you, Dr. Lesslie, for telling us about a few of them.
