Editorial Reviews for this title:
So many of us yearn for proof that the divine is present here on Earth. Divine Interventions: True Stories of Mystery and Miracles That Change Lives offers moving testimonials from one of the world's best-read spiritual writers-- a stirring collection of stories of divine guidance, healing, and miracles received by people past and present as well as the extraordinary outcomes of these sacred interventions.
Touched early in his life by an experience with the divine, Dan Millman has gone on to write some of the most important spiritual books of recent times, including Way of the Peaceful Warrior (more than one million copies sold) and Everyday Enlightenment. Now, Millman and coauthor Doug Childers bring their devoted readers extraordinary, detailed accounts of actual miraculous events-- some well-known, others known only to a few. This book shows once and for all that miracles exist for all to see, if only we open our eyes. Here are 50 true stories of mystery and miracles.
What does "divine intervention" mean to you? Authors Dan Millman and Doug Childers define it as "a form of extraordinary guidance, revelation, or grace that transforms human lives by leading to a higher path, courageous choice, inspired creation, or call to service in the world." Millman, a world-class athlete and author of the bestselling Way of the Peaceful Warrior
, was first touched by the divine in an unlikely way--a serious collision with a white Cadillac. The accident disrupted his athletic career and during his recovery he began to question his life's purpose, leading him to understand his athletic accomplishments as preparation for another path of "teaching, writing, and service." Doug Childers had an extraordinary experience with the power of love in the face of an attack by two thugs, one armed with a steel pipe.
In Divine Interventions: True Stories of Mysteries and Miracles That Change Lives, the authors have collected stories detailing disparate encounters with the divine, from the story of how a camel herder named Muhammad became a prophet, to the birth of mysticism in the writings of Carl Jung and Walt Whitman, to Bill Wilson's journey through alcoholism and the beginnings of Alcoholics Anonymous. The stories are short and easily readable, and while Millman and Childers are careful to address issues of historical accuracy, they are not out to prove anything, letting the stories speak for themselves. There are a variety of truths in this collection of miracle and mystery, bound together by the power of the divine to change ordinary lives into extraordinary ones. --Jodie Buller
