Reviews

"Dr. Scott Morris is the kind of person who, given a shovel and a mountain to move, would say, 'Now, where exactly would you like it to go?' In Memphis he pioneered a new way to address the health needs of the working poor. He models holistic medicine in all its dimensions, and this book shows how."
--Philip Yancey, author of Where the Light Fell and What's So Amazing about Grace?

"Leonard Cohen sings, 'There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in, ' and Scott Morris tells the inspiring story of how we can enable the light of God's love to shine through the cracks of our broken health-care system. Scott helps us see the light through stories of unconditional love and challenges us to learn to love as Christ loves and let the light shine through to change our own communities."
--Brian K. Milford, president and publisher of The United Methodist Publishing House

Publishers Weekly
"This is a powerful indictment of America's profit-obsessed, red-tape-riddled healthcare industry."
