WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Ernie Steury's life was filled with hard work and faithfulness to his calling – a full-time missionary doctor in Kenya. Miracle at Tenwek: The Life of Dr.Ernie Steury, by Gregg Lewis, published by the Christian Medical and Dental Associations, captures his commitment to improving the lives of everyone he touched. This book will inspire, encourage, and intrigue you as you walk alongside one of the greatest medical missionaries of the last century.

A mentor to Dr. David Stevens for over 30 years, Dr. Steury is an extraordinary example of how a faithful servant of God uses medicine as a tool to introduce people to Christ. His love for Christ and medical expertise forever changed healthcare in the highlands of Kenya. He assembled one of the most successful medical mission facilities in the world. Dr. Steury's testimony of what God can do through one life - totally committed to Him - is portrayed throughout the book.

Nicknamed "Mosonik'" ("left-handed one") by the grateful Kipsigis tribe, Dr. Ernie Steury's remarkable story is outlined in this biography. He went from living in a small rural town in Indiana, to selflessly changing the lives of thousands without formal training as a surgeon - all without adequate instruments and without a constant electrical supply.

This compelling biography illustrates real-life experiences from the Tenwek Hospital, founded and medically directed by Dr. Steury, located in a small community outside of Bomet, Kenya. This book includes humorous and poignant stories exhibiting what it was like to serve God in a difficult place. He was a kindhearted doctor who never turned anyone away, and he never let a patient go before telling them about Jesus.

"Ernie's is a compelling story with themes that grip your heart," said David Stevens, MD, CEO of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations. "His humility, faithfulness and dedication to evangelism inspire and convict. His story shows how God uses and honors those that are faithful."

Dr. Steury was one of God's special servants. In this book, he sheds a new light on the dedication of a Christian missionary doctor, and the power of humbleness in the lives of others.
