In this fascinating book, Rev. Dr. Douglas E. Busby describes remarkable experiences that he had in his careers in medicine, theology, and along the way. These experiences began as a pioneer in space clinical medicine and ended as an explorer of spiritual healing. Meanwhile, he held many clinical, research, administrative, and teaching positions in aerospace and occupational medicine, and then became an interim minister and academic theologian. Dr. Busby believes that as spiritual beings, we are on Earth to have a learning experience to help us along our paths to God. Perhaps this book will be in some ways a learning experience for its readers as it has been for him.
