Overview

Arranged chronologically from the years of the ministry of Christ to the present day, this inspiring volume reviews unusual events and visions that have been extensively documented but which defy scientific explanation. Dozens of stories are told, each in the context of its time, with evocative illustrations to inspire today's readers. Nature miracles recounted include Christ walking on the water and his feeding of five thousand disciples. Healing miracles include Christ's healing of the ten lepers and his raising of Lazarus from the dead. Later miracles include the dramatic conversion of Roman Emperor Constantine to Christianity in AD 312, and the Black Madonna of Czestochowa, Poland, which for centuries has protected its monastery from sieges by outsiders. Here too are accounts of miraculous apparitions of the Virgin Mary by St. James the Apostle, Bernadette of Lourdes, and the three children at Fatima Portugal. Accounts of other miracles involve the Shroud of Turin, the works of St. Francis of Assisi, and the vision of the Italian monk, Padre Pio, who reportedly protected his church from bombing during World War II. This fascinating and inspiring book is beautifully produced, and includes more than 130 color illustrations.
