Gifted hands is a chronicle of the life of Benjamin Carson as he journeyed from poverty to stardom.
Ben Carson in this book, tells us an intriguing story of his childhood struggle,
and how made himself available to be used by God through his hands to give life and hope to dying kids.
A home journal in the book had this to say about his attitude towards work.
” He frequently did surgeries that nobody else would touch”
This was a conversation between Ben Carson and a patient, when the patient got to know that Dr. Ben Carson would handle his case.
Ben Carson: It’s all in God’s hand.
Craig(patient): But we believe you let God use your hands.
Ben Carson did not leave out his failure in the story as unsuccessful surgery were also mentioned but the amazing thing about them was that relatives of diseased were always thankful to him for being willing to undertake a case that everyone else believed was impossible.
