Publisher's Summary

This gripping, inspirational memoir grapples with the tension between faith and science - and between death and hope - as a seasoned neurosurgeon faces insurmountable odds and grief both in the office and at home.

Winner of the Christian Book Award

"Beautiful, haunting, powerful..." (Daniel G. Amen, MD)

Dr. W. Lee Warren, a practicing brain surgeon, assumed he knew most outcomes for people with glioblastoma, head injuries, and other health-care problems. Yet even as he tried to give patients hope, his own heart would sink as he realized, I've seen the end of you.

But it became far more personal when the acclaimed doctor experienced an unimaginable family tragedy. That's when he reached the end of himself.

Gripping medical stories serve as the backdrop for a raw, honest look at how we can remain on solid ground when everything goes wrong and how we can find light in the darkest hours of life.

I've Seen the End of You is the rare audiobook that offers tender empathy and tangible hope for those who are suffering. No matter what you're facing, this doesn't have to be the end. Even when nothing seems to makes sense, God can transform your circumstances and your life. And he can offer a new beginning.

Critic Reviews

"Dr. Lee Warren has a rarified vantage point, for he makes a living by entering the most secluded - and most sacred - part of a person: the human brain. The patients in this book have stories worthy of a novel, and Dr. Warren does them justice, describing their medical crises in gripping prose while also facing the questions that emerge to test his faith." (Philip Yancey, author of such books as What’s So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew)

"Is this book worth your time? A few questions will help you decide: Do you appreciate fine writing? Are you willing to have your faith stirred? Would you like to eavesdrop on the thoughts of a brilliant surgeon? Could you benefit from some warm, vibrant, incisive contemplations about this difficult, untidy, wonderful thing called human life? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you are holding the right book. Enjoy it. I certainly did." (Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling inspirational author)

"In beautiful, haunting, powerful prose, I’ve Seen the End of You will inspire you, make you cry, and ultimately help you see God and suffering in a new way." (Daniel G. Amen, MD, physician, psychiatrist, best-selling author, and founder of Amen Clinics)

One of the best books I’ve heard

This is not a book I was looking for and am not even sure why I purchased it, but it has spoken to my spirit & soul in a way I was not expecting. I haven’t suffered incredible loss in my life or had to fight for the survival of myself or my family so I wasn’t sure this was a book for me. But I quickly learned this isn’t what this book was about.
I have doubted. I have worked to reconcile my faith & understand how we find peace in the statement “God is Good.” when little around us & inside us is truly at peace. Dr. Warren’s stories are raw & difficult, but everyone demonstrates how & why we can confidently serve a faithful & good God who sees all, knows all & loves all.
Thank you Dr. Warren!

great listen

Really enjoyed the entire book. Well worth the time invested. Make great takeaways especially the map doesn't match the ground. And the epilog is fantastic. Thanks for your service to others and sharing your experiences.

Medicine and faith

I decided to read this book because I’ve lost a child myself. I am a nurse and a person of faith. It is a quandary when the unthinkable happens and rocks your world.
The author tells his heartfelt story of being a human person of faith who also practices medicine and struggles to understand the whys of child loss and Gods sovereignty in disease.
I found many tidbits of healing within the story. It was like I was hearing my own story. I thank the author for his frankness and honesty. Gut wrenching. Most of all I thank God for the hope of eternity.
If you struggle with faith you are fine you are not alone. That doesn’t mean lack of faith but just how to carry faith in the reality of Gods sovereignty.

Amazing

My mom told me about this book. She read it after my dad passed from a quick and aggressive cancer only four months ago. This book reminded me of God's faithfulness in the times when it seems like he's not there. For someone who didn't know how to write, you've done a great job of learning. I was right there with you as you relayed the stories of your patients, their struggles, their triumphs, their failures. I listened to this book as I drove a long distance and would like to offer some advice... pull over when the tears impede your vision.

Thought provoked and faith examined

Absolutely loved this book! Dr. Lee Warren's story, perspective, and ability to weave in his personal experiences to draw out biblical, gospel truth was both thought provoking and heart warming. Although he and I have very different lives and professional paths, his honesty, vulnerability and raw but gentle approach really had me thinking through the very question he addressed - Will I lean into what I THINK I know, or will I lean into my faith and trust the God I know? The entire book was beautifully written and delivered, I especially loved how the epilog tied it all together and harnessed all that he had learned. Thank you Dr. Lee Warren for sharing this - I am now examining my faith and feel convicted to look through the faith prism in my current state so that the light and bigger picture can be revealed as I persevere and walk down this shadowy path.
