August 19, 2008 (Chicago) - As a woman flees an abusive boyfriend, her gas tank on empty, money materializes in her empty purse. Millions of fireflies suddenly appear and offer guiding light to desperate refugees trying to find a path through a mountain storm. Two women strongly sense that a missionary priest, far away, needs a prayer at the exact moment when he faces catastrophe. These are just a few of the more than thirty true stories recounted in Angels and Wonders: True Stories of Heaven on Earth (Loyola Press).
In Angels and Wonders, Joan Wester Anderson points readers to the spiritual realm for answers to otherwise inexplicable occurrences. For anyone inclined toward spirituality, each amazing story provides further proof of God's heavenly care in difficult times; for those who aren't sure if Heaven really does intervene on earth, this book provides plenty of reasons for them to doubt their disbelief.
