A Wonderful and Powerful Spiritual Book Apr 28, 2010
I found this book to be written very well. There was a "realness" to the Characters and a pertinent message for all of us. I found myself becoming friends with the Characters and feeling their emotions and becoming drawn into their lives. I also found that the spiritual message was a deep message and one that can be contemplated in our own lives.
This book definitely falls into the category of one of those books that once you begin to read it, you become captured and cannot set it down. I have told may people about the book and the message that it contains and all have enjoyed it tremendously.
You will not be disappointed with this wonderful Book.

This book is a treasure trove of wit and wisdom! The author's faith shines through on every page and I fell in love with the character of Father Ignatius. I first read about Father Ignatius on Victor S. E. Moubarak's site [...] and quickly grew fond of the author's faith-filled priest. I highly recommend visiting the blog and purchasing Visions!
A Must Read Apr 27, 2010
I have read Visions and found it to be a book of faith, love and trust. Father Ignatius believed in the children, trusted his parishioners and respected his superiors. As a former catechism teacher I kept thinking what a wonderful book this would be for students. My niece loved the story, this book provided the opportunity for her to ask questions which her mother and I could answer making her journey of faith a little bit easier to understand. I recommend this book to all those who want to read a wholesome story with many lessons that any age could benefit from. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Father Ignatius and his parish and certainly look forward to more stories of this wonderful priest written by Victor S.E. Moubarak, who has become a favorite author of mine.
