Inspiring story
5 stars By Racheal, Jan 16 2017
I love reading people's life stories, and Ben Carson's is particularly inspirational. It's a beautiful example of how God has a plan for each and every life, and we don't need to let our perceived circumstances get in the way of that. The encouragement from his mother throughout the story was also very encouraging. She never let them believe they were limited in what they could achieve.

Inspirational story
5 stars By jude, Dec 08 2016
I was greatly inspired by this book and went ahead and bought the DVD. I have used both in Scripture classes where children have thoroughly enjoyed the story of this man's life.
I recently loaned it to an acquaintance who is now asking questions about christian living.
I've just found out that Ben has written a more recent book directed towards youth. That'll be my next buy!

Inspirational reading
5 stars By Jenny, Sep 09 2016
Gifted Hands by Ben Carson is indeed a very good biography! Dr Carson's story is very inspiring. He was born and lived in a very disadvantaged environment but he didn't let that define who he was or what he could become. Through believing the Truth and who Jesus was, he simply trusted God and let Him be his guide in life and direct him to become all that God wants him to be - a neurosurgeon. I would recommend this book to anyone as I think it is a very encouraging story and how God can make a difference in our lives when we gave our full trust and love in response to His unfailing love towards us!!

Captivating Journey
5 stars By KE, Dec 22 2015
Ben Carson certainly has a story worth telling. His amazing mother was a wonderful catalyst in encouraging her underprivileged son to be all he could be.  By the grace of God, Ben Carson rose above his circumstances and has never looked back. A stunning story, and a must-read!
