I read this book after attending a church group/meeting that consisted of a rosary and message with Ivan one of the visionaries. After witnessing him converse with the Blessed Mother, I became very curious about Medjugorje & picked up a few books on the topic & this wad one of them. It really is a good book to get a general feel for what Medjugorje is or maybe what to expect. It is the authors calling to Medjugorje & what he went through to get there. It is a very good read, I loved ...more

I've read many books on the subject of Medjugorje, but this is the first one written by a non-Catholic. Its wonderful, insightful and very well written. I'll let you know if he converts or not when I get to the end. But, he has found that the world saw Mary before it saw Jesus.

Okay, today I finished the book. He hadn't changed religions yet, but he has been converted. He and his wife and kids now pray the Rosary daily, attend Mass now and then(mostly when they are in Medjugorje), but the real c

Summary: Wayne Weible was a happy protestant, oblivious to what all the hype was about the Blessed Virgin, until a friend came to speak at his Church. He was called to go to Medjugorje and to spread her message. He wrote a few small articles for a local free newspaper and had such overwhelming response that he realized he was meant to dedicate his life to spreading Our Lady's Message at Medjugorje, though his book and speaking.

Review: This book was a well-written, journalistic account, of the ap

Just a great book. Wayne is a tremendous, engaging author. I think this book is most-appropriate for those who have felt a calling to learn more about Medjugorje, and especially for those whom Medjugorje has become central in their lives. Our Lady of Medjugorje's messages are so important to me now and I found many common threads between my story of learning about the messages and Wayne's.

This book was loaned to me when I most needed it, but didn't realize it. Weible's story truly opened my eyes and helped me renew my faith. Its message is not easy to follow at times, but I now understand that everything worth living for is worth fighting for. Thank you, Mr. Weible, for helping me grow closer to God, Jesus, and Mary the Blessed Mother. This sincerely is a life-changing book.

I was excited to get this book, having heard so much about it. It just wasn't exactly what I expected. I wanted to know every detail about the miracle that is happening in my time, but as it applies to all of us, not just to one person. This book is one person's personal story. It is well written, and an easy read.

This book portrays a significant aspect of Catholicism--the messages of the Virgin Mary. It is geared mainly towards those who believe in the faith but since it is told from a Protestant's perspective, it could be said that it is an objective telling.

This was a fabulous book. Wayne Weible writes in such a way as to pull you personally into Medjugorje & to allow the reader to practically "feel" Our Blessed Mother's love for us.
I can't wait to read his next book.

I love this book. It not only gives historical account of what when on in Medjugorje during the early years of the apparitions but also tells a wonderful story of the author's own conversion.

While I enjoyed the book, I intended to read about Medjugorge to determine what exactly has been occurring there over the past 20-some years. This book doesn't serve that purpose at all, as Wayne Weible is an advocate and a convert because of his experiences with the people and the place. I finished the book but realized I would have to continue my research elsewhere to make up my own mind about the apparitions. The Internet has many different sites dedicated to Medjugorge and the people to whom ...more

I enjoyed this book very much because as a Catholic who is a believer in apparitions, it provided a different perspective of Marian apparitions from a non-Catholic point of view. He is a journalist, somewhat religious but had no familiarity with apparitions and was not a devotee to the Blessed Mother which made him skeptical of the phenomena. His journey, and his wife's were interesting and thought provoking. I liked learning about the the facts, the people associated with this miracle and the m ...more

A lady at my church gave me this book. It's her way of spreading the message of Medjugorje, a small, obscure village in what used to be central Yugoslavia. I had heard of it but knew very little about it. After reading this book, I feel informed about how Medjugorje came to be a famous spiritual place where pilgrims from all over the world seek out the Holy Spirit to lead them in faith.

Wayne Weible is a wonderful Christian writer, journalist, husband, father, and speaker who has experienced Medj

I enjoyed this book, but it got a little bit repetitive because the author kept on repeating most of the same information over and over. Overall, I enjoyed the book and I recommend it for anybody who wants to read a religious book.

So, it took me 6 months to read this book. But I did enjoy it! My love and devotion for Our Blessed Mother has been growing, especially within the last few years. I have always had an affection for her, and the seeds were certainly planted when I was a child, but that flower of love is truly blossoming in my life right now. I love reading about Mary, because it allows me to get to know her a bit better as a true mother of us all. What is happening in Medjugorje is truly amazing, and I enjoyed re ...more

I enjoyed the beginning of the book but towards the end it seemed to become egocentric and the narrative was difficult to follow. The author seemed to jump from different times, places, and people. It was difficult to keep straight what he was talking about. It would be a decent book to introduce someone to the idea of Medjugorje and for a Catholic, it gives a little bit of an inside look into Protestant religious beliefs. Particularly as these beliefs pertain to the Catholic church.

My rating is in reference to the quality of the writing and is not meant in any way to suggest a lack of belief in "The Message". I am convinced that the skeptics will remain skeptical and the believers will continue to believe. The primary message is one of peace and love of our fellow man.

A real look into the Blessed Mother, Medjugorje, and the rosary. There are everyday miracles. Brings to mind many things I remember about being Catholic and watching my grandmother pray the rosary.

It was interesting, but after I got halfway, I got tired of just reading about Wayne Weible's experiences and rah-rah's and wanted more about the visionaries' experiences.

These messages from Our Lady have been occurring since the early 80's til the present. Why isn't this on the front line of every newspaper?!?

would rate the writing 3.5 but the subject a 5. I believe that as a society we are too fast to write miracles off as crazy or unbelievable.
