Book Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of Where Angels Walk and In the Arms of Angels

Miracles are not simply occurrences found in the Bible or in the lives of the saints. They continually bless the lives of many people in our world today.
As beloved author Joan Wester Anderson’s best-selling books so movingly testify, God’s touch is always
but a heartbeat away.

Now, for the first time in paperback, Anderson brings together her most glorious and remarkable accounts—stories of mysterious rescues, celestial visions, unexpected healings, inexplicable protection, and many other signs and wonders: mysterious forces save a mountain climber lost in a blizzard; in God’s service an illiterate carpenter finds himself able to read; a band of angels frees a little girl from her violent father; an eloquent preacher, his vocal chords rendered useless by scar tissue, suddenly—in the presence of a large congregation—regains his full voice.

In The Power of Miracles, Anderson inspires readers to be conscious of God’s work in their everyday lives. These wonderful and true stories light up the pages, bringing comfort and renewed faith to everyone who reads them.

This book is one of Joan Webster Anderson's more dynamic, and spiritually beautiful tales. The stories are quite believable, and the demonstrations of God's hand at work during trying times is amazing! Try it - not only the book but God! I have, and the results are exemplary. The stories in this book are not only unbelievable and mysterious, even though she writes from a largely Catholic perspective; the truths spoken are not solely from a Catholic perspective. Thy are from a God perspective, who knows no religion.

If you are thinking "I don't believe in that stuff", I would say try it once - you will!

Highly recommended!

Angels help us whether we realize it or not. The Earth can be negative and painful at times, so it is good to know that we are not alone here. God helps us in many ways. Good reading at bedtime or anytime. I have had several experiences of angel help, so I believe all this is possible.

Bought this as a gift for my 86 year old mother for Mother's day. She loved it, and so has every other person in her Sunday School class. I hope to purchase others by this author in this series for future gifts.

I've been a fan of Joan Wester Anderson for years her books are inspiring. Joan's a great writer I have a collection of her books and now that Amazon is carrying them it is so easy to purchase them. If you like Angels and true stories you will love this book and others of Joan's books of short stories.

I have enjoyed every book by Joan Wester Anderson. Her stories are warm, uplifting and inspiring. A nice read in these difficult times. Good reminder that God and His love are always with us in this journey to Him.

This is a pleasant book of inspiring short stories- however in many of them I feel too much
is made of "angelic" intervention, either that, or a sort of agenda for "accepting jesus" and then
"things worked out". I personally find that about half of these stories involved basic good old
human intuition, which all of us have deep stores of, and can develop further.

Bought this for my mother, who's a "Holy Roller". I think it was a Christmas gift. Anyway, she said she enjoyed it, although I'm her first born son and she says that about everything I give her, regardless of whether it's jewelry or a dead possum. I didn't give it more than 3 stars because I'm doubting my Mother's sincerity this time around.
