An important book that takes seriously the Roman Catholic Church's engagement with the paranormal. Schwebel points out that the church doesn't readily accept reports of the miraculous as being genuine. In fact, much of the book involves ordinary supernatural events such as faith healing and "Marian" apparitions. There is quite a bit of wisdom in this little book. For further remarks, please see my blog post on the book: Sects and Violence in the Ancient World.

The book is an excellent, objective and scholarly examination of a subject which will be of value to both believers and sceptics. Ted Harrison, Theology).

This book considers curious religious phenomena as manifestations of the paranormal. The author defines the terms used by parapsychologists -- telepathy, PK, precognition, etc -- and demonstrates how these "psi" abilities might be used to explain religious visions, faith healings and other inexplicable happenings. She also argues that a parapsychological interpretation does not invalidate the spiritual value of such phenomena.

This is all well and good, if you accept the central premise of the book: namely, that paranormal abilities actually exist. This is still very much a question of faith, despite the author's calm assurance and scientific demeanor.

If you are already convinced that psi effects are real, this book will provide food for thought. If you don't ...

This book is perfect for me as a layperson who has an interest in the subject, but had known little until reading Apparitions, Healings and Weeping Madonnas. The author's style is such that she respects the reader's intelligence, while educating and informing, expanding our perspectives. This is a book that sheds light on the paranormal, no matter what one's faith. I highly recommend this book.

This rambling discourse spends a third of the book defining the
terminolgy of the field of parapsychology. It is all downhill for
the remaing two thirds.The author jumps around and is never able
to do more than make bizarre scenaros that are used to discredit
long held beliefs.The appendix contains charts that are so useless that the reader is reminded of the college freshman trick
of filling the term paper with double spaced pages and anything that would thicken a weak report.
The author makes many timeline errors and I had the feeling that
she had not researched and verified much of the data.

Much has been written about visitations/appearances from the Virgin Mary but none as innovative and well researched as this. The material is treated in a balanced and insightful manner but remains extremely readable.
Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in parapsychology.
