Reviews

Skiff, an award-winning investigative journalist and correspondent for CNN, compiles an inspiring if uneven assortment of real-life accounts of meeting with the divine. Whether readers are actively religious or die-hard skeptics, the stories recounted will reaffirm God's existence and intervention in human affairs. Skiff draws upon such themes as listening to God's voice, answers to prayer, healing and confirmation of an afterlife. While less spiritually inclined readers may find some stories more attributable to coincidence than divine intervention, other tales are beyond rational explanation. In one account, a woman who had irreparable brain and organ damage was completely healed and discharged from the hospital after prayer. A man felt an urgent caution against taking an airline flight on which nine people were subsequently killed. In a similar tale of miraculous warnings about danger, a woman heard an audible voice tell her to stop right before she stepped in front of a seven-foot Australian snake's mouth. Mysterious and faith-inspiring, these stories are valuable even if some don't conform to readers' particular religious beliefs. (Nov. 11) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

"Whatever your personal beliefs, this book is a perfect way to explore and discuss your own relationship with the spiritual."
--Redbook

"God Stories arrives at a perfect time. With each of us struggling to find our personal missions and how to manage the madness of everyday life, this book reminds us that clues, signs, and moments can be found everyday showing us that God is here. God Stories is a book filled with fabulous true stories. With the increasing hunger to find peace, spirituality, and personal mission, this book shows us we're not alone in that journey. God Stories arrives at a perfect time recounting those almost unbelievable moments when others were touched and moved in the right direction."
--Carole Tomko, Executive Vice President, Discovery Networks "Faith can't necessarily be explained no matter what religion you are but there are examples where faith has moved mountains for people. This book helps people to understand, from whatever religious perspective they have, that there is someone watching over you."
--Alan Bond, America's Cup Winning Yachtsman "Just when you thought life's journey was the solitary plodding of one day unconnected to the next; God Stories reveals the golden threads that link lives and loves and give us strength to weave a beautiful tapestry."
--Carolyn O'Neil, Former Executive Producer & Senior Correspondent CNN Television "God Stories is proof positive that God - whatever else He or She may be- is one helluva storyteller. Transcendent reading."
--Susan Maushart, author of The Mask of Motherhood, Wifework, and What Women Want Next "Here's one thoughtful, readable and thoroughly engaging approach to understanding the phenomenon of faith and inspiration, the existence of which we cannot dispute, but the sources of which are a constant wonder."
--Becky Madeira, Vice President, Pepsico "I'm not a believer - so God Stories and spiritual experiences I usually take as proof of people's willingness to believe anything, no matter how nonsensical and silly. These tales bought to us by Jennifer Skiff are not silly. If you abstract the religious elements you are left with people at a point in their lives where they discover optimism and joy. There is not enough of either in the world and we need more people to affirm 'Yes life is worth living'. These stories do just that."
--Guy Brooke, The Earl of Warwick "God Stories are the stuff of life and living. Reading this book is a touching and soul penetrating experience."
--Mark Victor Hansen, Co-creator, #1 New York Times best selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul (R) and co-author, Cracking the Millionaire Code and The One Minute Millionaire "At the beginning of the twentieth century William James wrote an important book on the varieties of religious experience. Now, a century later, Jennifer Skiff has collected a variety of early twenty- first century accounts of religious experience, all helpfully organized in themes. These give us some direct insight into the ways in which different people interpret their human experiences, particularly unexpected and unusual experiences, and how they do this religiously. If a miracle is defined as any unusual or unexpected occurrence that brings a person to a heightened awareness in time of the presence of the eternal God and of the ultimate mystery of life, then the clear conclusion is that 'miracles do happen!' Those whose trade is in abstract theology will be inspired and impressed by the degree of religious conviction that can be triggered by concrete religiously interpreted experience."
--Peter Carnley, Co-Chair of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission "My eyes filled with tears and my heart lifted as I read God Stories. Jennifer Skiff has presented us with a wide range of heavenly touches, everything from quiet hugs to stunning out-of-body experiences, and readers of all faiths will be moved. As the praise song goes, "Our God is an awesome God!" Each page of this beautiful book attests to that."
--Joan Wester Anderson, author of Where Angels Walk and Angels and Wonders

"A bouquet of inspiring stories...for the believer and nonbeliever alike."
--Julia Cameron, bestselling author of The Artist's Way
