Does God really exist? Is there really any evidence for that? Can science prove that the Communion wine and bread actually turn into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ? Does the Shroud of Turin validate the mystical resurrection of Christ through careful expert scrutiny? How can statues weep real human tears? How can the bodies of deceased holy persons not decay for centuries? What are angels – and what roles do they play? Want to hear how Heaven and Hell are described? And, historically, hundreds of people worldwide have documented appearances by the Virgin Mary! This just cannot be real ... or is it? Psychiatric therapist John Carpenter takes you where few researchers have gone before. Like a logical detective amassing the supernatural evidence for your consideration, he presents historical accounts and miraculous events along with recent medical and scientific research to develop a credible and stunning conclusion. His evidence may bring you to a refreshing new spiritual awareness at a time when doubt, distraction, materialism, violence, and self-indulgence seem prevalent. The implications are both joyful and chilling as Carpenter slowly seduces the reader into following him through the labyrinth of divine mysteries created by those "footprints from heaven." Be not afraid to take this journey and discover the Truth that could change your life!

About the Author
John S. Carpenter, MSW, LCSW Raised in Evansville, Indiana, as the son of a Methodist minister, John loved the nurturing home his parents provided. He has fond memories of vacation trips to the family’s rustic log cabin on a wilderness lake in Northern Michigan every summer. He loved the meditative beauty of calm waters, glowing sunsets, adventuresome trails, and mystical northern lights. These beautiful moments enhanced his interest in photography, music, poetry, and writing. Carpenter received a degree in psychology from DePauw University in Indiana, followed by a Master in Psychiatric Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. For the past thirty-seven years, he has served Southwest Missouri in the field of psychiatry providing psychological assessments, individual, group, and family therapy, marriage counseling, and clinical hypnotherapy. While performing those services, he also lectured and trained other healthcare professionals from Hawaii to Maine and Alaska to Key West on various disorders and forms of psychological treatment. His first book was entitled Effective Strategies for Helping Couples and Families (2002). Having listened to details of thousands of people’s life experiences, he has always been intrigued by some of their paranormal encounters and supernatural occurrences. Like a good detective, he has always approached those questionable events with a nonjudgmental, logical, and open-minded attitude along with investigative curiosity. After his father retired, he drifted away from the church for years until his beloved Ruthie gently introduced him to Catholicism in 2006. He became Catholic in 2010 and then found fascination with documented, alleged appearances of the Virgin Mary. He delved deeply into this research, going well beyond what most Catholics had been taught. By 2012, he was sending out a free e-mail newsletter every weekend on Marian Apparitions. In 2013, he became the codirector of the Marian Association for the diocese of Springfield, Cape Girardeau, Missouri. By 2014, he was serving as the president of the Bishop’s Diocesan Pastoral Council as well as on the parish council of Our Lady of the Lake in Branson. That same year, he was invited to broadcast an on-going, weekly, international radio show, Journey with Mary, through the Internet. Today, he continues to provide enthusiastic presentations on the evidence-based reality of God. He can be contacted at: or visit his website: “Divine M
