Celebrated Cardiologist's Personal Spiritual Quest . . .
First, He Brought a Dead Man Back to Life
— Not With Medicine, But With Prayer
Yet That Was Just the Beginning of the Story . . .
Now, His Candid, True Account Will
Help Bring You More Fully to Life, Too . . .
Jeff Markin was a dead man.
In fact, he was officially declared dead at 8:05 a.m. in a Florida hospital emergency room.
The date was Oct. 20, 2006.
Only 53 years old, Markin was a big, burly, ordinary guy, a mechanic by trade.
And not a religious man by any means.
Heart specialist Dr. Chauncey Crandall was attending to his patients when he was summoned to the ER, but he knew his presence on the scene was not only a last resort — but also most likely a lost cause.
Jeff Markin's heart rhythm had flat lined with cardiac arrest from a massive heart attack. A full 40 minutes had come and gone since his heart beat last. His pupils were fixed and dilated — he'd been "down" too long.
By the time Dr. Crandall arrived at the emergency room, Markin's heart had already been shocked six times with the defibrillator. Just to make sure, his non-beating heart received a seventh shock, also to no avail. Rounds of medications and other efforts had all failed to revive the patient.
Markin's lips, fingers, and toes had literally turned black with death from a lack of oxygen.
There was no doubt — he was dead.
After Markin died, nearly everyone left the room. Nobody wants to remain around the smells and specter of death.
While a nurse prepared Jeff Markin's lifeless body for the morgue, Crandall remained in the room to write up his final report.
Then, once he completed his paperwork, Dr. Crandall headed toward the door to return to his own patients.
Standing in the door's threshold, however, he was overcome with a strong feeling.
A deep-seated sense that God wanted him to turn around and pray for Markin.
At first, Dr. Crandall — a man of science — was somewhat reluctant, even embarrassed. He felt foolish.
But the request from God came to Crandall again, even more compelling this time.
So he felt called to heed the message. As Dr. Crandall put it, he felt like "God's intercom."
And even though the words Crandall said came through him, he had no sense of devising them — they poured from him of their own accord.
"Father God," Crandall prayed, "I cry out for this man's soul. If he does not know You as his Lord and Savior, raise him from the dead now, in Jesus' name."
Then another strange thing happened.
Involuntarily, Crandall's right arm shot up in a gesture of prayer and praise.
At that moment, the ER doctor came back into the room and Crandall ordered him to give Markin what seemed like one more useless shock from the defibrillator.
At first reluctant, the doctor finally did as Crandall asked, and applied the defibrillator.
Immediately, the machine registered a perfect heartbeat.
Jeff Markin started breathing on his own; his black, cyanotic toes and fingers twitched. Soon, he began to mumble.
Jeff Markin had returned from the dead.
And Dr. Chauncey Crandall would never be the same again.
This Story Will Transform Your Life, Too
Dr. Crandall's story doesn't end with Markin's second chance at life. It's actually what happened earlier that proves even more compelling.
Historically, Crandall kept his conventional Christian faith and his medical practice separate.
Until June 2000, when he was confronted with the worst nightmare a parent can face — his son Chad's life-threatening illness.
Eleven-year-old Chad and his twin brother, Christian, were happy and athletic all-American boys born to Crandall and his gorgeous high-school sweetheart wife, Deborah.
Chad's diagnosis of a deadly form of leukemia hit like a bombshell.
"Lord, If You Are Real,
You Have to Heal My Son"
After the diagnosis, Dr. Crandall cut down his medical duties so he could learn more about the treatment of leukemia — and research what the Bible says about healing.
He sought like-minded Christians in his area but was disappointed to find that most of them did not truly believe in the power of prayer to heal.
So Crandall had to travel the world and take some unusual paths in his quest for supernatural healing through Christ.
Surely there were those who still believed in God's power to heal through prayer.
One Man's Quest for Christ
Of course, Dr. Crandall did not neglect modern medicine for Chad.
"I believe completely in supernatural healing, and I'm clear about God being the healer, not me."
— Chauncey Crandall, M.D.
He sought out the best doctors, the best medicine, and the best facilities in the country. Yet it wasn't enough.
So he became bold in his spiritual enthusiasm.
In Raising the Dead, you'll walk a while in Dr. Chauncey Crandall's shoes and discover:
- How the grace of God can help you overcome disease . . .
- Spiritual interference that can come from innocuous-looking objects or books,
even leading to seemingly unrelated health problems . . .
- The problems with and causes of "why-me" thinking when something
bad happens to you or a loved one . . .
- How prayer, praise, and thanks-giving can do wonders for stress, and even
eliminate the need for medications . . .
- Using the ancient principle of exchange to benefit your life . . .
You'll also hear about multiple instances of modern supernatural healing and divine influence:
- A crippled woman delivered by wheelbarrow who walked away from
a Mexican mission post after a healing ceremony . . .
- God's protection from a modern-day stoning attack . . .
- Mysterious prayers that appeared on the wall of his son's hospital room . . .
- Dr. Crandall's own experience of being blown 15 feet backward, unhurt, when
prayed over by a modern-day John the Baptist . . .
- Crandall's uncanny ability to heal others through prayer and the laying
on of hands during his stint as a lay minister . . .
Dr. Crandall found that Chad's illness taught him how to fight the spiritual battle every Christian faces. And that there is a certain privilege in desperation.
And as Dr. Crandall will tell you: "The physical and the spiritual go together."
First, the Healing of the Soul —
Then the Healing of the Body
During his son's illness, Crandall realized how important it is to stay in shape and take care of yourself. God has work for you to do — and illness will only present a roadblock to your spiritual growth.
As Dr. Crandall puts it: "It's important as God's servants to honor the body as God's temple. Otherwise, we give the devil an easy opportunity to shorten our service to God . . ."
Additionally, Chauncey Crandall came to realize just how much the physical and spiritual are intertwined.
The Lord told him, "I've given you a platform as a physician to win the lost for Christ." Chauncey knows he still has much work to do as the Christian physician.
