His primary question for the disciple of Jesus considering medicine or any other intensive graduate program or career is "who will you follow"? Tsai threads the needle well in his first publication by getting to the core by first assessing our identity: whether we are in Christ I deeply appreciate Dr. Tsai threads the needle well in his first publication by getting to the core by first assessing our identity: whether we are in Christ or not. All else will not have eternal and substantive significance otherwise.

That then sets up the application of discipleship in the context of medicine - giving you a glimpse into the practical realities of the mind of a practitioner that is ultimately a disciple.

Worth the Cost?: Becoming a Doctor Without Forfeiting Your Soul by Jack Tsai

He shares his experiences in light of Jesus' call to discipleship - which can be radically different or opposing to the invisible scripts we easily accept and believe when we give ourselves to our "calling" rather than Jesus, the one who has called us to himself. From start to finish, this book is about gospel fluency - living life with Jesus at the core and addressing one of its implications as you consider becoming a medical practitioner.

Mar 13, Ben Watt rated it it was amazing. Tsai is a young physician in California who practices family medicine for poor patients, as well as ministering in his church, and in his case, becoming a doctor has been worth the cost. He weaves his own story, along with a good measure of sly humor, into his advice for medical students, pre-medical students, or pre-pre-meds like me. Medical training not only comes with a frightening financial cost and encyclopedic studying, but Worth the Cost?

Medical training not only comes with a frightening financial cost and encyclopedic studying, but with emotional exhaustion and sometimes burnout and in an alarmingly high number of cases, suicide and the tempting possibility of getting rich. It would be no consolation to pay the high price to become a doctor, only to realize with the farsightedness of old age that I had wasted my life.

In the end, determining the answer to the title of Dr. Feb 08, Dahm Nu-win rated it it was amazing. I also posted this to amazon, but if anyone in the medical field is looking for a great book to determine if they are going into the medical field for the right reasons, this book is for you. I read this book as someone who is applying to medical school and was pleasantly surprised on how much insight I was given into my own life goals. The way Dr. Tsai writes the book makes it very easy to connect with what he is saying. And even though the book is based around the teachings of the bible, quoti I also posted this to amazon, but if anyone in the medical field is looking for a great book to determine if they are going into the medical field for the right reasons, this book is for you.

And even though the book is based around the teachings of the bible, quoting numerous passages and using Jesus as the prime example of the ideals that should be present in a physician, do not be turned away if you are not Christian. Anyone can relate to the ideas presented in this book. I highly recommend it to any hopeful and current doctors who look to serve the community in the best way possible.

While the importance of prioritizing God in the pursuit of one's professional calling, whether that be a medical calling or otherwise, is heavily emphasized throughout, all Christians should find Dr. Tsai's poignant warning that the things we choose not to prioritize now will be the same things we fail to prioritize in the future to be undeniably relevant.

Prioritizing God in the present is not a professional dilemma; it is a continual life choice, Dr. Tsai reminds us. Moreover, Dr. Tsai express While the importance of prioritizing God in the pursuit of one's professional calling, whether that be a medical calling or otherwise, is heavily emphasized throughout, all Christians should find Dr. Tsai expresses his wisdom with such simplicity and sincerity of diction that the image of genuine child-like faith is inevitably conjured up within readers' minds.

Such an accomplishment is difficult for even the most practiced Christian writer to achieve. Jan 16, John Feng rated it it was amazing. As a Christian medical student at a major university, I found this book to be immensely practical in re-centering myself on the Gospel. This book provides excellent insights into the emotional and spiritual challenges uniquely faced by medical providers while giving practical application of the Gospel into every area of life. Tsai gives a refreshing reminder that the biggest battles we face are not against our circumstances but rather our sin that separates us from our Creator.
