Do you ever wonder about the purpose of pain? Gain fresh insight into this topic as you follow the lives of doctors Paul and Margaret Brand and their pioneering work with lepers in India. Their research has led to a whole new understanding of the important role pain plays in our lives, seeing it as a gift, a sensory warning to the body and soul. Armed with their newfound knowledge, the Brands developed innovative medical techniques that allowed those afflicted with leprosy to function in society and see themselves as having been made in the image of God.
“Dr. Brand would just marvel at the wisdom of the Designer in putting together the body. [Dr. Brand was] the first person I had ever met who marveled at the design of the pain system in the human body. But he would say, ‘Thank God for pain. If there’s only one gift that I could give my leprosy patients, it would be the gift of pain.’” —Philip Yancey, Author
