Mystical events that seem to defy the laws of science have fascinated people in all places and times. Miracle healings, ghostly visitations, icons that weep, hands and feet that seem to bear the wounds of Christ are not only grist for the tabloid press but have won a cautious place in mainline belief. Astonishing nummbers of people claim to have had mystical experiences. How can we judge whether their claims are authentic or not? And if they are "real" experiences, does that mean they came from God? The present volume examines a broad range of phenomena that have been put forward as direct interventions by God in the human realm. It looks at them through the lens of theology, but it also leans on recent developments in the field of parapsychology, a discipline that studies unusual psychic abilities. The two threads of inquiry complement each other, shedding new light on the processes of religious experience and inviting a new appreciation of the human yearning for the transcendent.
Is there a middle ground between miracles and tall tales? Here's a book to help believers in Christianity make sense of it all. In Apparitions, Healings, and Weeping Madonnas, Lisa Schwebel examines a broad variety of mystical experiences through the twin lenses of scientific and paranormal research. Her fascinating and important book sets out to record how religious people have described there "supernatural" experiences and then places these accounts within the wider context of the Christian mystical tradition. The author closely examines accounts of such seemingly "miraculous" phenomena as ghosts and apparitions, weeping icons, prophesy, healings, and visions. The author then examines what psychology and the physical sciences teach us about the phenomena of visions and miracles. She explores mystical accounts that have been reported throughout history-often without accompanying claims of divine intervention and investigates what such accounts reveal about the authenticity of mystical phenomena. Schwebel also demonstrates how research in parapsychology can provide a theoretical framework for analyzing visions and miracles. Taken together, the anecdotes and stories in this book provide compelling documentation of events that defy the teachings of modem science. And the author provides modem Christians with the knowledge that will help them to differentiate between tall tales and the truly inexplicable.
