Meet The Witnesses

John Haffert interviewed living eyewitnesses to the event which occurred on October 13, 1917. This reprint contains additional pictures, updates, information, and insights to this world-changing event. What witness would not believe in the Miracle?

Skeptical reporters were there, in force, to expose what they were sure was a fraud. Their unbiased reports amply demonstrate

The same day—October 23, 2017—I expressed frustration with another author’s disinformation about Fátima, I received this book in the mail. Coincidence? It is a reprint of a 1961 book which compiles the testimony of many actual witnesses to the October 13, 1917 ‘Miracle of the Sun’ which took place in Fátima, Portugal. It also gives a brief history of the apparition, how it was handled by Bishop José da Silva, the first Bishop assigned to Fátima in 40 years. The investigation began in 1922 and ...more

I was not all that familiar with the details of the miracle of Fatima and I won't say this book provides a lot of theological insight, but as noted by other reviewers, it does deepen the believeability of the event by reporting many individuals' eyewitness accounts. Several of these witnesses were not Christians and were armed to NOT believe, but what they saw was so shocking that they converted on the spot. But this was almost 100 years ago. What's the point of Fatima today? The book does ...more

Very interesting read. I went into this book not knowing much at all about the Fatima miracle. But this miracle intrigues me immensely. I am surprised (and I must say, also disappointed) that it is not more talked about, not just among Catholics, but one wonders how the world can ignore such a phenomenon. This book however focuses more on the testimonies of the witnesses rather than the actual miracle or its message. While I enjoyed reading it, the accounts did become a bit repetitious; though I ...more

I picked this book off a pile that had come to us after my mother in law's passing. It's an unusual religious book, that gives a factual account of the events at Fatima on Oct.13, 1917.Through eye witness accounts, from believers and atheists, we get a description of the sun spinning toward the earth that day, in what many thought was the end of the world. There is also a description of Mary's requests and predictions.

It is a book that inspires prayer and faith.

Originally published in 1961, this book relates eyewitness reports of the miracle of the sun which took place in Portugal on October 13, 1917 and was witnessed by 50-75,000 people. It has been updated with new info and I plan to buy the revised edition even though I own the older edition.

Given to a friend by a family member, the friend wanted me to read this prior to her reading it, so I was expecting to be underwhelmed by a poorly written religious something. Instead, I was quickly intrigued by eyewitness accounts to an unexplained phenomenon of sun/colored light/crowds...all with wet clothes in mud suddenly and inexplicably all clean and dry, testimony by non believers and scientifically minded interviewers who never changed their testimony nor conflicted with each other. ...more

It adds some new testimonies to the Fatima's Sun miracle. It's an attempt to describe it from rational point of view. Considering many theories. Although, it's not very elaborated. It's rather short report.

This is a good explanation of the miracle and the seers. The events surrounding the miracle are depicted very well. The rest of the book got tiresome, after a while. Witnesses are interviewed and they all say the same thing. I didn't believe, then I saw, I believe.

Easy read. Nice addition to the story of Fatima. Story was written in 1960 and thankfully capture what it did but would have liked to see better formatting to the way in which their testimonies were presented.

Good book but hard to follow at times. Very well researched.
