Everyone Should Read this Book Dec 15, 2006
I was drawn to this book because as a convert to Catholicism, Mary is new to me as a religious figure in the foreground. This was a book that dealt with not only a Marian apparition, but one that happened in the time of relatively more modern media.
It is absolutely an amazing story, with the final miracle being witnessed by thousands and recounted in Portaguese newspapers. The story is retold by a blood relative of one of the children.
If there is one criticism of the book, I would say it is the authors' over reliance on their one source. He is an incredible source, no question, but they limit themselves a little bit by not bring in additional sources more often.
Very interesting... Nov 16, 2006
I found this book very interesting. I have been aware of Fatima since I was a teengager (now 49). I read other books about the story. This book had some additional information...of a rather spiritual nature about the kids that I found very intersting and thought provoking.
I don't know why the other reviewer didn't like the book...I found it very good.
The story out of the History Jun 15, 2006
Yes, we can deal with Fatima events from two ways: 1) by faith and assuming that the official version of this kind of books, made by foreigners without factual basis or 2) in historical grounds searching to look on the original documents and analyse them outside the cultural interpretation of the marian apparitions kind. This is the great problem of almost books on Fatima: they are more "fatimists" than Fatima itself and use the imagination without control in a fundamentalist quest that is blind to the true documents reality. When the faith lead the writer we can do anything but see all these approaches as a story that is out of History.
