The book is sincere and well documented as to the source of the images. Now whether or not they are as miraculous as the various pieces of chicken, paper towels, rocks and grilled cheese sandwiches in which the messiah appears... the authors wisely leave that to the belief of the reader.
Some of my favorites are pierogi Jesus, lava lamp Mary, and Cheesus (Jesus made from a Cheeto). I'm not trying to make fun of the people who apparantly believe what they have seen, and some of the pictures do appear to show, at least in part, an image of Jesus. Some, however, really challenge the mind, and you have to kind of squint in order to even get a vague idea of what is being shown. Look, if these people want to believe, it's their right and I won't challenge that.
This book reminds me that several years ago in the town where I live, the newspaper announced that the face of Jesus was seen on the tabernacle cloth of the local Episcopal church, and people were flocking to see it. One lunchtime my father-in-law and I went to the church to observe this cloth. When we came out he said he thought that he saw Jesus' image, but I said nothing. I didn't want to upset him by saying I'd seen an image also, but it looked to me like George Carlin!
Enticed by its hologram-like cover, I was delighted to find that this small book is chock-full of incredible, amazing
and sometimes downright funny images of Jesus, Mary, the Pope and Buddha.
It's ordinary people like you and me who have not only recognized these extraordinary visions, but have also taken the time to document these sightings, all discovered during the course of their everyday lives.
From grilled cheese to chicken, on baseballs, in rotting grapes, grease stains on driveways to shadows on umbrellas and oysters, these images are indeed both mysterious and humorous.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have it in our family room where it has started more then a few lively discussions among my friends. If you like a bit of irreverent humor this can be that perfect little gift for any number of occasions.
