Overview

Years ago we might have assumed that miracles were possible, but surely not for ordinary folk like us. Today we are learning that such a philosophy is too limited. God has not abandoned His people. He continues to call uswith little signs or awesome wonders--every day of our lives.
Is there anyone who does not long for signs of God's loving presence, some token of guidance and protection? Joan Wester Anderson's cherished books testify to that deep human longing and to the miracles that God has wrought in answer to His children's needs.
In Where Wonders Prevail, the author gathers dozens of true stories that tell of safe passage through the very heart of trouble and danger. The missionary priest in the Nicaraguan jungle whose life was saved by the prayer of friends in Michigan. The New York City cop who went about his dangerous work protected by heavenly bodyguards. Teenaged best friends Patty and Joni, whose closeness not even death could erase. Two-year-old Erin's last-second reprieve from disease. The lonely Seattle man whose life was transformed by a mysterious little messenger. Another young man who was literally wrapped in angel wings on a Georgia highway and the author's own sign from heaven, glowing on her front lawn.
In Joan Wester Anderson's simple and moving narrative, we find many such glimpses of heaven--wondrous rescues and answers to prayer, visions of life hereafter, and inspirational healings. It reminds us that God is always near, every step of our way.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although Anderson's (Where Angels Walk, Ballantine, 1992) readers and the widespread readership of angel books in general will provide an audience for this book about the miraculous intervention of angels in human affairs, this is a less substantive treatment of the subject than Sophy Burnham's Book of Angels (Ballantine, 1990). Anderson's anecdotal accounts also lack the credibility of Burnham's Angel Letters (Ballantine, 1991) because the narrative and dialog provide a sense of embellished drama rather than a forum for those involved to share their own sense of these sacred events. A marginal purchase. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/96.]
