Why We’re Writing


I’m Dean.  I learned a lot of science in order to practice medicine, mostly neurosurgery, in the hope that I could perform some healing.  Over the last forty-some years, my patients and my family taught me that science was not the only tool a healer needs.  These are some of my stories about the intersection of faith.



And I’m Adam, the son of a neurosurgeon with a degree in theology. I’m a dyslexic, a cancer survivor, and an epileptic.  I have been a hospital chaplain and a minister to the homeless. I have experienced a great deal of suffering, and I’ve ministered to a great deal of suffering. These stories share what I’ve learned about God’s place in our suffering and our healing.

Together we think our stories can help both those who are acquainted with suffering and those who are called to be healers.
