Here is a balanced, objective and thoroughly fascinating account of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary that are claimed to have taken place almost continuously since 1981 in Medjugorje, Yugoslavia. Each year millions of pilgrims visit the remote mountain village. The Virgin describes herself as the Queen of Peace and brings a message of reconciliation, healing and staying faithful to the gospel. But how much credence can we give to the claims of the six young visionaries? Mary Craig has written a detailed, open-ended study of these compelling events.
