Angels on Call
Inspiring True Stories from the ER
Robert Lesslie’s story collection Angels in the ER was called “a chronicle of mankind at its best” by actor Richard Thomas. Readers have agreed—the book has sold over 125,000 copies! Now, in Angels on Call, Dr. Lesslie chronicles more incidents and people from his 25 years in the ER.
This fast-paced, inspiring, and thought-provoking volume reveals many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be “angels” in their own way. Readers will be captivated as they meet…
- patients who choose life despite difficult circumstances
- people whose condition of body—or soul—demands split-second action
- fathers, mothers, and children as they triumph over difficulty
- individuals who embrace hope—for themselves and others
Woven throughout is a question: Are we “on call”—are we available—to help others? Readers will be inspired to consider this question as they share intimate joys and struggles of people just like them.
“Angels on Call is a fascinating book…”
—CBA Retailers + Resources
“A wonderful book that will make you laugh one minute and cry the next, with stories and people you won’t soon forget.”
“These stories in Angels on Call are written with passion and love. Dr. Lesslie writes with clarity and enthusiasm. His stories will make you cry, laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat.”
“Angels are everywhere, they come in all forms, and I am pretty sure that Dr. Lesslie has received his wings.”
"My 22-year-old CNA daughter loaned me her copy of Angels on Call, suggesting it would be a good read for her 59-year-old assistant principal dad. I have reflected on my own life's work with adolescent students as I read each account. In turn I have loaned the book to several teachers at my school. I am writing to share how very much I enjoyed your book, especially the inspiring scriptural references accompanying each story."
