About the Author

W. Lee Warren, M.D. is a brain surgeon, inventor, Iraq War veteran, and writer. His most recent book, No Place to Hide, was named to the 2015 U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff's Recommended Reading List. Dr. Warren has appeared on The 700 Club, the CBS Evening News, and his writings have been featured in Guideposts magazine. He plays the guitar and loves to make connections between faith, science, and the realities of life. Dr. Warren lives in Nebraska with his wife, Lisa.


"Dr. Lee Warren has a rarified vantage point, for he makes a living by entering the most secluded--and most sacred--part of a person: the human brain. The patients in this book have stories worthy of a novel, and Dr. Warren does them justice, describing their medical crises in gripping prose while also facing the questions that emerge to test his faith."--Philip Yancey, author of such books as What's So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew

"Is this book worth your time? A few questions will help you decide: Do you appreciate fine writing? Are you willing to have your faith stirred? Would you like to eavesdrop on the thoughts of a brilliant surgeon? Could you benefit from some warm, vibrant, incisive contemplations about this difficult, untidy, wonderful thing called human life? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you are holding the right book. Enjoy it. I certainly did."--Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling inspirational author

"In beautiful, haunting, powerful prose, I've Seen the End of You will inspire you, make you cry, and ultimately help you see God and suffering in a new way."--Daniel G. Amen, MD, physician, psychiatrist, best-selling author, and founder of Amen Clinics

"With the death rate still at 100 percent, we all will face hard conversations and experiences with ones we love. The pain will always come. But having someone who can explain the pain--physical, emotional, and spiritual--from the inside is invaluable. I've Seen the End of You gives us that kind of help. It's a difficult read at times because of Lee's honest wrestling with the questions we face at these moments--which is why we can trust him as a guide. He even helps us with the tough conversations with God because he's been there too. As a hospital chaplain who has conversations every day like the ones Lee describes, I'm grateful for what this book teaches me and those of us who face death daily."--Dr. Jon Swanson, chaplain at Parkview Regional Medical Center

"As I lay nearly lifeless on a gurney in early April 2005 in Balad, Iraq, God used Dr. Warren's expertise, tenderness, encouragement, grace, and love to save my life. And now, in this book, Dr. Warren's words are not only encouraging but also thought provoking as he helps us all understand our individual purpose on this amazing journey of life. I urge everyone to read I've Seen the End of You because your life will be forever changed."--Scotty Smiley, author of Hope Unseen and CEO of Bellator Asset Management

"Dr. Lee Warren's book is so well written that it will be hard to put down. It will challenge you and encourage you to live life to the fullest, never doubting that we have a great Creator who has a remarkable purpose for us all. A must-read!"--Tiffany Smiley, president of Hope Unseen, founder of More Than Me, and advocate for veterans and caregivers
