Overview

      Psychic medium B. Anne Gehman gave her first spirit readings to her teddy bears at age five. Raised in the Mennonite tradition, she left home at age 14 to finish her schooling. A life-changing near-death experience led Anne to develop her natural gifts, including an uncanny ability to predict future events. She has gained international attention for her help in solving crimes, locating oil and missing persons, healing illnesses, and connecting family members with their loved ones in spirit. She has worked with top government agencies and officials, police departments, judges, and corporate CEOs.

      While remarkable for her spiritual gifts and experiences, Anne’s life is all the more fascinating due to an unusual twist: she is married to Wayne Knoll, Ph.D., a former Jesuit priest. A brilliant student devoted to his faith, Wayne also left home at 14 to join a Roman Catholic seminary. Even while pursuing his life’s dream as a professor of literature at Georgetown University, Wayne felt an emptiness that only a woman could fill. After more than a decade of religious training, he made the wrenching decision to leave the priesthood, not knowing if he would find the love he sought. The Priest and the Medium shares the remarkable story of two soul mates on parallel paths with divergent beliefs, yet united in their love for God and each other.

Having met Anne many years ago when she was married to Bob, I was anxious to read what happened to her. I loved reading that she is doing so well. The first time I met her she was doing readings at a radio station in Daytona Beach. My husband worked there, so I was there to see and listen to her. We went to a Christmas party at her home. I was so in awe of her beautiful home in pastel colors. Thank you for a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down.

This book was written about my Uncle Wayne and my Aunt Anne Gehman. Wayne is the oldest son from my father's family of nine. I have been fortunate to be able to spent some time with both of them over the years so I know from experience that the incredible inspiring stories from this book are all fact and not fiction. Trust me when I say this book is hard to put down since it was written so beautifully and since the characters, Wayne and Anne, are so unique and one of kind. Their life experiences are something movies are made out of and these true stories about them will definitely touch you in a way that will be positive and life changing. I could go on, but just trust me...get the book, read it and thank me later. Corbin Knoll

I just loved this book! It was an easy read that was hard to put down. The fact that the book is about current people made it all the better...and the writing gives great clarity as to who the main character truly are and what they stand for.

Giesemann is a good author, and has written a true story about two people. She goes back and forth between the two through their lives, and you get a good sense of these individual's lives and belief systems. I have enjoyed her books and would recommend them. I won't spoil the ending...

This is a truly lovely story about two individuals who live seemingly disparate lives but eventually find each other. Is it the will of God? Is it orchestrated by Spirit? These and many other questions will dance around your head and your heart as you join medium B. Anne Gehman and her husband, former Jesuit priest Wayne Knoll, PhD. on their spiritual journeys. The book tells each person’s story—altering between Anne and Wayne—in a linear fashion from the 1930’s through the early 2000’s. Their lives are so different and yet so similar, it is fascinating to watch them develop and unfold side by side in this book. As the book progressed, I could not imagine what would bring these two extraordinary people together. Although my desire to know how Anne and Wayne met and fell in love was an impetus to keep me reading, it was not the only one. It is the determination and faith of each of these characters that kept me invested in their stories and their growth. Initially, I was most intrigued by Anne’s special gifts as a medium, but I became equally fascinated with Wayne’s journey into the priesthood. Both Anne and Wayne are so confident and passionate about their paths and purposes, it is inspiring. A treat at the end of the book is an interview the author did with Wayne and Anne. It is honest and thoughtful and really gives you a sense of what they mean to one another and how their mutual respect for the others faith only brings them closer—to each other, to God, and to Spirit. My favorite quote from the interview comes from Wayne when discussing an irreconcilable intellectual difference between Anne and him: “…If we cannot—not just Anne and me, but humankind—if we cannot maintain mutual respect when there are intellectual differences, then all civilization is tribal….Then the only people that matter are those in our tribe. And this is why we have such problems in the world today. We don’t all have to be Spiritualists or Catholics, but we do need mutual respect, while maintaining the integrity of one’s personal identity.” Amen.
