This is the autobiography of an English orthopaedic surgeon, but presented as an evangelical testimony; we received it via a family connection with the church where Porter worshipped until his death in 2005. Porter seems to have made some genuinely important steps forward in the treatment of lower back pain, and clearly found great strength in his faith and in his own success at bringing other people into it. I was a bit dismayed, though, by his animus against liberal Methodists (practically the only group of people for whom he has a bad word) and even more so by his embrace of Creationism towards the end of his life.

Creationism among the medical professions is something I find utterly jaw-dropping.
