This fast-paced, thought-provoking volume contains two insightful books powerfully narrated by longtime emergency room doctor, Robert D. Lesslie, M.D. Angels in the ER and Angels on Call will forever change your idea of the people in an urgent care center, revealing many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be angels in their own right. Not the celestial messengers sent from God, but Christ-like good Samaritans who work through Him to comfort and heals.
Angels in the ER:
Twenty-five years in the ER could rattle even the most faithful soul, but for Dr. Robert D. Lesslie, it’s

Angels on Call:
“Who’s going to help me?” in our moments of helplessness and fear, each of us asks for an angel of care and compassion. In Angels on Call, Dr. Lesslie shows us that God does not forsake the hurting. In these hard-to-put-down stories, he focuses on what his patients have taught him, and he shares those lessons with us.
