$6.99

Paperback
Florence Nightingale never questioned the day God called her into His service. But determiningjust what that service would be was another matter. "Decent"young women of the nineteenth century weren't expected to work - especially not in the foul, disease-ridden medical camps of the Britishmilitary.But that's where the "Lady with the Lamp"found her calling: comforting sick, wounded, and dying soldiers, and fighting for their rights within an apathetic establishment. From Scutari Hospital in the Crimean War, she turned the medical world upside down.Florence Nightingale's efforts revolutionized the care of hospital patients and elevated nursing to the noble rank it holds today. Most importantly, it clearly demonstrated Jesus'teaching of service "unto the least of these my brethren."

- Publisher For Florence Nightingale (1820--1910), following Christ's example of service meant tending to the medical needs of the sick and injured. The famous 'Lady with the Lamp,' one of the most influential women of nineteenth-century England, is generally considered the founder of modern nursing. The best-known aspect of her life--nursing wounded soldiers at Scutari Hospital in Turkey during the Crimean War--comprised, in fact, a very small part of her fifty-year career, but provided the springboard from which it all began. Her good deeds to 'the least of these' helped elevate nursing to the respectable profession it is today.
