A book club discussion of the book, "The Late Great Planet Earth", leads a woman to become a Christian, but she is afraid to tell her husband. A discouraged volunteer decides to continue her volunteer work after hearing the Virgin Mary's voice giving her direction. And a parish church is transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
These stories and many more demonstrate the love of God for His children. The people in this book have related their experiences to the author who affirms the accuracy of the things that have happened to them. From accounts of miraculous healings to timely visions and dreams, these testimonies will strengthen your faith and remind you that God never stops caring about the lives of those He has created and sustained.
The stories in this book will appeal to Catholics, other Christians, and anyone curious about divine intervention. Some stories feature lifelong believers while others focus on people who have recently heard God calling them back to Him. But all these different accounts are united by a focus on divine love and grace. In a world that looks for coincidence, it's time to look for God Incidents.
"Thomas describes well the intimate and transforming stories of men and women who have had a special encounter with our loving God."
Most Rev. Richard J. Garcia, D.D. Bishop of the Diocese of Monterey.
"Tom has written a book everyone should write; an account of the many times God has visited us with his power and mercy. These "God incidences" increase our faith, and we would do well to write them down to remember and cherish them." Rev. Francis "Rocky" J. Hoffman, Executive Director of Relevant Radio.
"These encouraging stories, from many different walks of life, remind us that it's possible to discover our gracious God in every moment of our lives." Rev. Matthew Spenser, OSJ, Host of St. Joseph's Workshop on Relevant Radio.

About the Author
Thomas R. Lukes is a lifelong Catholic and a retired architect. He worked on many church related and school projects. When he was thirty, he had a special encounter with God that motivated him to live his life for God while serving his church. Today, he serves as lector and Eucharistic minister at his parish.
For five years, he served as "lay director" of the Cursillo movement in Monterey, California, and was editor of the Cursillo newsletter, which he named Rekindle. In 2011, Lukes was part of Bishop Richard Garcia's committee to bring Immaculate Heart Radio to the Monterey bay area. Proceeds from this book go to support Catholic education for the diocese.
Lukes and his wife have three sons and six grandchildren. In his retirement, Lukes enjoys daily Mass, weekly Bible studies, reading, and, of course, golf.
