Can you really balance a dynamic career, a husband, children, and faith? You'll find that the answer is yes in the inspirational and remarkable life of Christian pioneer, Dr. Margaret Brand.

You'll be challenged as you read how she moved to India to work among the leper colonies, successfully brought up six children amidst the constant threats of tigers and malaria, all the while pioneering surgical procedures in ocular medicine.

Vision for God will uplift you to discover that a life made available to God will help others experience Jesus' care and compassion.

And all along the way, you'll get to enjoy her wonderful sense of humor and optimistic perspective on life and faith. From South Africa to England, from India to China and Turkey, join Doctor Margaret on the journey of a lifetime.

Dr. Margaret E. Brand and her late husband, Dr. Paul Brand (known to readers for his books with Philip Yancey), served on the staff of the Christian Medical College and Hospital in Vellore, South India, for eighteen years, and on the staff of Gillis W. Long National Hansen's Disease Center in Carville, Louisiana, for twenty-two years, where Dr. Margaret was Chief of Ophthalmology. She is the mother of six children, grandmother of twelve, and great-grandmother of two. Now 87, Dr. Margaret still maintains a busy schedule, speaking and traveling around the world. She makes her home in Seattle, Washington.
