This was the first book I ever read on Marian apparitions. It almost turned me off to the real message of Mary. The book spends almost all its pages outlining horrible visions, i. e. destruction of the earth, three days of darkness with demons swirling all over the place, the Antichrist, and on and on and on until you're scared half out of your mind. Some of this stuff is so disheartening that I wondered, what exactly is the point they're trying to make? They spent too much time on these fatalistic visions and a lot of negativity instead of focusing on the real point: turn back to God and pray often. Read the Wayne Weible books on Medjugorje if you want to understand the true meaning behind Marian apparitions. His books were truly uplifting. These authors do nothing more than scare you and make you feel powerless to stop these nightmarish events. That's not the point of Mary coming here.
Having studied with real visionareys I can say from the bottom of my heart that this is the one and only strictley truth based book of visions I have ever read. The Authors appeared to be concerned with the truth for what it is and put their and the readers opinions and wishes asside. They tell the truth for what it is and I can assure you that you are going to find some areas that disagree with you so if you are alady set on standerds based on your wishes and assume yourself right before opening the book ( speeking especialey to comon Catholics ) you might as well not open it. If you are sincear and want to see things for what they are, this is the book. Might I also note that some of the predictions in this book have actually happened exactley how they said it would and alot of the "far fetched un-Catholic" things mentioned are WELL known about and highley acted on among the practices of the church up in the depth area ( highley devout and educated ) and are surrouded with evidence from the other side to conferm the validity. Their just not brodcasted all over the Catholic comunity. This is the Apocalypse based book for anyone who realey wants the truth for what it is un-adulturated and is seariues about their spirituael life and relationship with their heavenley father.
