Mark Davis wants others to know that God is still in the healing business

Mark Davis didn’t understand when faced with chronic ulcerative colitis as a child. He puzzled over why he was forced to battle an always lethal and rare liver disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis in his 20’s. He questioned his life’s plan when he received a terminal diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma in his 50’s.

Medical complications and trips to May Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota were a constant in Davis’ life, but so was God. Now, Davis recounts how the Lord was the healing medicine he always needed in “Healing: Faith and Medicine - A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness.”

“Healing: Faith and Medicine” chronicles the complicated life and medical challenges paired with questions of faith Davis faced. The memoir showcases his professional experiences as he navigates multiple life-threatening illness and their complications. Told from a faith-based perspective, “Healing: Faith and Medicine” highlights Davis’ unfaltering faith in God and builds on the belief that God is good, the Bible is true and God is the same today as He was 2000 years ago.

The captivating narrative features common questions about healing, both in the soul and the body. Additionally, Davis sheds light on God’s love for society, shows how he is present and active in our lives, and also believes that many times coincidences are actually the hand of God moving in our lives.

“I am alive thanks to a combination of good medical treatment paired with the supernatural hand of God,” Dr. Davis said. “Healing: Faith and Medicine is meant to aid those that face a similar struggle. Trust in the medical process and the doctors, but most importantly, trust in God and his plan for you.”
