Publisher's Description

A collection of inspiring stories describing the moment when people received personal proof God exists

Have you ever experienced a miracle? A prayer was answered or an accident was averted? For many, these mysterious and inspiring events are proof positive that God exists. This collection of life-changing stories celebrates the breakthrough moments when the hand of a divine power is felt: A doctor opens the chest of a dying heart patient to discover her heart is healed; Marines watch as a fellow soldier in Iraq is hit by a powerful explosion but remains uninjured; a young woman loses her boyfriend on 9/11 and receives a message that brings her peace.

Reassuring, hopeful, and unforgettable, these amazing confirmations of divine intervention will lift your spirits and leave you wondering–and even remembering–when your life was touched by a miracle.

“A wide range of heavenly touches, everything from quiet hugs to stunning out-of-body experiences.”
—Joan Wester Anderson, author of Where Angels Walk and Angels and Wonders

“Reading this book is a touching and soul-penetrating experience.”
—Mark Victor Hansen, cocreater of the #1 New York Times bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series and
coauthor of The One Minute Millionaire

“A bouquet of inspiring stories...for the believer and nonbeliever alike.”
—Julia Cameron, bestselling author of The Artist’s Way

Editorial Reviews

“Whatever your personal beliefs, this book is a perfect way to explore and discuss your own relationship with the spiritual.”
Redbook

God Stories arrives at a perfect time. With each of us struggling to find our personal missions and how to manage the madness of everyday life, this book reminds us that clues, signs, and moments can be found everyday showing us that God is here. God Stories is a book filled with fabulous true stories. With the increasing hunger to find peace, spirituality, and personal mission, this book shows us we're not alone in that journey. God Stories arrives at a perfect time recounting those almost unbelievable moments when others were touched and moved in the right direction.”
—Carole Tomko, Executive Vice President, Discovery Networks

“Faith can’t necessarily be explained no matter what religion you are but there are examples where faith has moved mountains for people. This book helps people to understand, from whatever religious perspective they have, that there is someone watching over you.”
—Alan Bond, America’s Cup Winning Yachtsman

“Just when you thought life's journey was the solitary plodding of one day unconnected to the next; God Stories reveals the golden threads that link lives and loves and give us strength to weave a beautiful tapestry.”
—Carolyn O’Neil, Former Executive Producer & Senior Correspondent CNN Television

God Stories is proof positive that God - whatever else He or She may be- is one helluva storyteller. Transcendent reading.”
—Susan Maushart, author of The Mask of Motherhood, Wifework, and What Women Want Next

“Here's one thoughtful, readable and thoroughly engaging approach to understanding the phenomenon of faith and inspiration, the existence of which we cannot dispute, but the sources of which are a constant wonder.”
—Becky Madeira, Vice President, Pepsico

“I'm not a believer - so God Stories and spiritual experiences I usually take as proof of people's willingness to believe anything, no matter how nonsensical and silly. These tales bought to us by Jennifer Skiff are not silly. If you abstract the religious elements you are left with people at a point in their lives where they discover optimism and joy. There is not enough of either in the world and we need more people to affirm ‘Yes life is worth living’. These stories do just that.”
—Guy Brooke, The Earl of Warwick

God Stories are the stuff of life and living. Reading this book is a touching and soul penetrating experience.”
—Mark Victor Hansen, Co-creator, #1 New York Times best selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul ® and co-author, Cracking the Millionaire Code and The One Minute Millionaire

“At the beginning of the twentieth century William James wrote an important book on the varieties of religious experience. Now, a century later, Jennifer Skiff has collected a variety of early twenty- first century accounts of religious experience, all helpfully organized in themes. These give us some direct insight into the ways in which different people interpret their human experiences, particularly unexpected and unusual experiences, and how they do this religiously. If a miracle is defined as any unusual or unexpected occurrence that brings a person to a heightened awareness in time of the presence of the eternal God and of the ultimate mystery of life, then the clear conclusion is that 'miracles do happen!' Those whose trade is in abstract theology will be inspired and impressed by the degree of religious conviction that can be triggered by concrete religiously interpreted experience.”
—Peter Carnley, Co-Chair of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission

“My eyes filled with tears and my heart lifted as I read God Stories. Jennifer Skiff has presented us with a wide range of heavenly touches, everything from quiet hugs to stunning out-of-body experiences, and readers of all faiths will be moved. As the praise song goes, "Our God is an awesome God!" Each page of this beautiful book attests to that.”
—Joan Wester Anderson, author of Where Angels Walk and Angels and Wonders

“A bouquet of inspiring stories...for the believer and nonbeliever alike.”
—Julia Cameron, bestselling author of The Artist’s Way
