Judith MacNutt is a licensed psychotherapist and had a private practice for many years. For several decades, Judith has joined psychotherapy with healing prayer. In her book, Angels Are for Real, Judith pulls back the curtain on these intriguing beings and offers insight and stories of miraculous encounters and healing and hope that emerged from those encounters. As an infant, Brad Schmidt was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. In the aftermath of three invasive surgeries, Brad was left unable to stand or even to begin to walk. The medical team told Brad’s parents that at best Brad would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. Today Brad is a nationally ranked racquetball player and a chiropractor who works with law firms as an accident investigator. In Where Does the Fight Come From?, Brad tells of his life-long battle overcoming the effects of his fight with neuroblastoma, radiation, chemotherapy, learning how to walk, overcoming scoliosis – a side effect of the surgeries – and other related challenges. What motivates credentialed/licensed professionals to choose to write about the miraculous? What risks, if any, did they anticipate as each wrote their own book? What impact have Judith’s book and Brad’s book had on the lives of others?
