Item Description...
A detailed collection of the Virgin Mary's accredited appearances Collecting the 34 known and accredited apparitions of the Virgin Mary, this study applies an intellectual clarity, precise scholarship, and overall rigor so often absent from Marian studies. Offering detailed evidence, supported by thorough theological and scientific investigation-including the circumstances of each apparition and their legacy-this entertaining and provocative resource gives validation to each event, while connecting their significance to civilizations past, present, and future. Marveling at each phenomenon deemed most holy-often calling on to humanity to pray, do penance, or predicting cataclysmic events-mainstream Catholics and seasoned Theologians alike will find reassurance and guidance in each account of real life miracles. Also included are a chronology of the officially sanctioned apparitions and the exact text of the words spoken by the Virgin to the mystic or seer who bore witness.

Publishers Description
This major study of the recurring phenomenon of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary shows how these appearances have stood up to scientific and theological inquiry. With full-color illustrations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Becuase our Mother loves us  Dec 31, 2002
In this book you can read the many messages from our Mother in heaven. She begs us repeatly to pray. She insist that we say the rosary and meditate on the life of Christ. She tells us to fast frequently on bread and water. She reminds us that the graces from the Mass and the Eucharist are heaven sent and our presence is required. She commands our full attention by her persistant appartitions throughout the world and through time. She tells us that we must decide for God. She desires that we turn away from the world and towards the light that she brings us from heaven. Her presence has been seen and experienced by thousands of people of various faiths. She has given signs and left signs behind of her presence. She has increasingly appeared during the last 100 years. She is warning us of the consequences to our world of our sinful behavior. Read this book and pass it on quickly to other people that you care about. Ask them to prayfully consider it's contents and to spread the word. Start your own personal daily pray routine. Ask others to join you or join other people in prayer. Pray for God's love and mercy on us all. Thank God for sending us our Mother to guide us.
Finally, Marian Devotions Presented as Universal Phenomena  Aug 24, 2002
Growing up Roman Catholic, especially during the 1950s, the church teaching about Marian apparitions were focused on a few well publicized "approved" phenomena. The apparitions themselves are mezmerizing stories and another way of bonding the faithful to their Catholicism. Of course, the apparations receiving the most favorable publicity are Guadalupe, Mexico; Fatima, Portugal; and Lourdes, France. "God Sent" is a book that lives up to its title. It's actually "God Sent" to read about the miraculous Marian apparitions in the context of the history of Christianity (especially in the Roman Catholic tradition, but not exclusively) and to also realize how the Marian phenomena are universal, even more prevelent than reported by the mainstream Roman Catholic media. My faith has been positively affected by reading "God Sent". I sincerely want to thank the author, Roy Abraham Varghese for taking the time to write such an eloquent history about The Blessed Virgin Mary and her frequent calls to humanity for prayer, peace and penance. Varghese writes about the Marian apparitions almost as though he personally witnessed them. Moreover, he explains the messages in ordinary language. My husband and I traveled to Lourdes, France, after reading "God Sent" and the spiritual experience of being in this special shrine located in the French Pyrennes Mountains was more meaningful when understood in the context of nearly all Marian apparitions documented since the first century. Frankly, I wish "God Sent" was more readily available in bookstores. As a thorough history of Marian devotions, "God Sent" deserves to be a best selling book if, for no other reason, than to help ordinary readers appreciate Varghese's extraordinary research into the important history of Marian devotions in Roman Catholic spirituality.
A must for anyone with a devotion to the Blessed Virgin!  Dec 16, 2000
This book is well-researched, with beautiful color pictures of the Blessed Virgin as she appeared throughout the centuries and all over the world. An inspiring, thought-provoking book, with endless information about the Mother of God and her role in humanity and in divinity. Renewed my faith and inspired me to a more prayerful life.
An inspiring and thought-provoking history  Apr 10, 2000
Varghese's thesis, laid out in the first section of the book (and the title), is that Mary is God's messenger to the modern world. Both Varghese and the Catholic Church teach that she is more, too. In apparitions through the last 2000 years, she asks and inspires Christians to deeper faith and more spiritual lives. As the "new Eve," she crushes evil; as the "new Ark of the Covenant," she bears (in Jesus) and embodies God's new Covenant of redemption with humankind. This first section, though important to a theological understanding of Marian apparitions, is the least strong section, as Varghese at times tries too hard to justify points (piling on weak arguments) which in my estimation were well justified by his first few arguments.

The remainder (majority) of God Sent, though, chronicles the most significant apparitions of the Blessed Virgin. In descriptions of the apparitions that draw heavily on the words of the visionaries, of Mary herself (as recalled or transcribed by the visionaries), and those that have studied the apparitions, Varghese relays the Blessed Mother's inspiration, promises, warnings and great concern for humanity. This is, by far, the most important and arresting content of the book. One finds oneself alternately comforted by Mary's concern and promises, motivated by a desire to join her in prayer to ease the sufferings of Jesus and frightened by the horrors of Hell and the human-wrought anguish which she repeatedly warns we are brining upon ourself (such as in her appearances in Rwanda and Bosnia).

Definitely read this book and act upon Mary's exhortations.
