Bog: "Du har rørt mig hjerte"

Hjertevenner

Johannes Møllehave: Kan du huske den dag, vi gik tur, og du pludselig sagde til mig: “Er det ikke lidt underligt at tænke på, at jeg faktisk har rørt ved dit hjerte. Jeg har holdt dit hjerte i mine hænder”. Og så sagde du: “Det lignede alle andre hjerter”. Det var, ligesom du var lidt skuffet. Havde du troet, det måske var firkantet?

Gösta Petterson: Jeg ved snart ikke, Johannes, for du ligner jo ikke nogen anden.

Så fint starter denne nye, varme og livskloge samtalebog hvor præsten møder kirurgen, og vi møder to mænd, to mennesker, to venner – med mod på livet og noget på hjerte.

Hvad er det med dét hjerte og Møllehave? Hans eget har været ude for lidt af hvert. Når man ser bort fra, at det har givet, og også fået, i tonsvis af kærlighed, så har det også været lige ved at give op. Møllehave er selv 100 procent overbevist om, at ud over Vor Herre, så findes der én mand, der er skyld i, at det stadig banker af livets lyst. Han hedder Gösta Pettersson, og han er i dag hjertelæge på Cleveland Clinic i den amerikanske stat Ohio, hvor han i døgndrift opererer hjerter. For år tilbage opererede han Møllehave, som fik livet og livsglæden tilbage, og operationen førte til et usædvanligt og ubrydeligt venskab mellem de to mænd. Et venskab hvor de på forskellige måder har rørt ved hinandens hjerter, et venskab hvor de begge har lært hinanden noget om dem selv, og et venskab som bygger på samtale om alt det dybe i livet: Tro, håb, kærlighed og meget, meget mere.
