A reason I believe true for why God lets certain people die, is because He was saving them from something worse. It wasn't her time to go. For she was to be a walking talking testimony of God's powers and love. God favors none. Once it's your time to go, you will fully understand everything. Like in the Power of Positive Thinking, when the child was in the hospital when her aunt had died. No one told her about the aunts death, yet when the child was passing, she said aloud, "Aunt May*, what are you..." She paused, then stated, "Now I understand," and passed. *I couldn't remember the name of the aunt. May God's Glory touch you and your loved ones today and everyday. God Bless

It's funny how god saves heiresses from dangers but lets those in concentration camps die, along with saints, sailors, president Lincoln, the crew of spaceships, whole armies of soldiers and, most importantly of all, my cat. Why doesn't she explain gods system of favoring heiresses!

Dear cynic, Your view is earthy and legitamite and limited. I personally met two other people raised from the dead. One is a short term missionary to India. He died of food poisoning on a high mountain road far from a hospital and the people in the car with him circled him and prayed with fervancy and desparation to God to bring this spiritually powerful man back to life because they needed him and his deep love for God to lead and strengthen them. This man lives in western PA and he and his wife are long-time friends of mine both before and after this occurrence. The other man is a missionary to Central and South America. He lives in Texas. He trains and leads people in missions work. So why would God choose these people over any others? This is our perspective, but not God's. God's perspective is this. "All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:16 NIV God has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. Our jealous comparing of personal worth based on money or outward grand success is not God's view of us. He rejoices over each one of us with singing and He quiets us with His love. Zephaniah 3:17 God takes deep delight in each and every one of us. We need to take God at his word about ourselves. It will set us free to rejoice with God at the positive outcomes He brings into other people's lives. Little do we know what horrors other people have experienced in the secrete places in their lives before this goodness of God occurred. Of this, I speak from experience. If you are one of those with horrors in your life, then you are a prime candidate for God to show up in His abundant glory to bring greatness and goodness into your life through his hand and his plan for you to be more than blessed, but also to be overflowing so that others are blessed with the excess flowing off of you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give unto you. Not as the world gives, give I unto you. With Him, Joyce

I am almost done with this book and it is absolutely amazing what she went through! I got on here to see what others say. And knew there would be cynical people. All I know is that He says ALL things are possible with God. He can move any mountain. Sure, I have wondered before why some can audibly hear His voice and others (like me), haven't. But isn't it really about faith? I like how the author spoke of blind faith! Who knows what He may have in store for me..or for anyone who posted on here! He works in mysterious ways and He does not think like we do either! I cannot imagine why someone would 'make-up' a story like this. I think these things happen to build others faith. We will always have scoffers. Satan doesn't want us to believe...and he is the deceiver. I will put my trust in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Yes, yes, and YES!! Praise God!

Joyce, the word you are looking for is "sceptic", not cynic. The only evidence that the Bible is the word of God is that some people say it is. People say and believe all kinds of crazy stuff, so I don't think that's good enough. There are other religions than Christianity after all, and their adherents seem just as convinced, just as sincere, just as filled with spiritual insight. So, who can possibly say which is right? The simplest, and to me most sane answer, is that they are all equally wrong.

Well, was your cat rich? Obviously, god loves rich people. He needs their money for more televangelists. You want your cat to get its nine lives? Get out there and hustle, baby! Make some money! God needs a new steeple!!

Why did you not believe her? Do you think the God that did miracles in the Bible accounts is dead? I urge you to seek the face of the God Who saved this woman's life. Don't make fun of Dr. Wagner. Just be glad God didn't think you worthy of such a blessing as having been raised from the dead. Signed, Born again and so very thankful.

I've read this book over and over again. Dr.Wagner's prior life and her accounts of her abduction and death at the hands of her perpetuators are all precisely true.
If you can't fully and completely believe you will never be the person God created you to be. You're missing an amazing life.

No, no, no. None of this is even remotely true. God does not exist, he/she/it is a fairytale creature, and just because someone once said the Jesus is the son of God does not make it true. I'm really sorry, I genuinely want to respect people's faith, but when someone insists on perpetuating superstition, I kind of bristle. "The bible is true because it is the word of God" is probably the most easily falsified and refuted statement ever. The bible is what a small group of men decided that the word of God should be, because it best suited their theologies at the time. By alle means, by religious and be happy with it, but admit that it is your personal truth and not everybody else's.Peace and love, most sincerely meant. Cheers from Denmark.

I know it's been over a year since you posted this. I am just today seeing it as I was having fond memories of meeting Dr. Petti Wagner. She was a real person and a very spunky lady I might add. Like you, she did not believe in the Bible as being God's word, at first. She was a member of the Palmolive family and they bought Colgate. In the college lab she invented the first cold-wave hair permanent. I heard her tell her story and I am convinced that it is every bit true. She finally found out that it was her children that plotted to have her murdered. I saw the sadness in her eyes, which was no act. I also saw how her black hair turned snow white after the shock treatments she endured. Her story is true and so is the Bible. May God open your eyes.

I read this book and also saw the author not long after. I am always amazed at what God can do for anyone that believes in him. I hope she is alive and doing well .

I believe it! We have a teacher who distinguishes the difference in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit's voices. It is absolutely amazing that God dealt with her as He did. Whoever anonymous of 8/18 is needs to realize that Jesus can do anything He wants and is not limited by unbelief such as hers. Who are you that you should doubt the word of the psychiatrists that examined her? And how DID she get out if she wasn't telling the truth? ML Colorado Springs

It sounds as if you have the misfortune of not having read, nor believed "the good book" either, eh? The eye witness reports of Christ and his story are the most documented events in human history. That speaks for itself. "Ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven lest ye become as little children." That Kingdom is a place of sincerity, kindness, gentleness and trust. I pray that you find your way in to that sanctuary and that you realize that precisely no human can overrule the opinion God wrote into the case of Jesus Christ when his death penalty was overruled by his resurrection. May you become a living witness, blessed and full of faith and love.

Even if I did believe in your "good" book (which, as you correctly deduce, I don't) it wouldn't make any difference to the credibility or otherwise of Petti Wagner's. It sounds as though you have the misfortune of not having any capacity for critical thinking.

I really feel sorry for doubters like you! It is sceptics like you that despite documented proof that need a total renewing of the mind.

It is amazing how just because SOMETHING DOESN'T HAPPEN TO SOMEONE, they automatically THINK THEY have all the answers in the universe, and are the final SAY on what could possibly happen to someone ELSE!!!! I never say "this or that" did or didn't happen to SOMEONE ELSE, because it is just complete ARROGANCE to think YOU have the final say in what happened to SOMEONE ELSE!!! Just because it didn't happen to YOU, who do you think YOU are to say it COULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED to SOMEONE ELSE!!! U are not them...... U don't know what happened to them....

The point, as so often in such matters, is that extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. There's a big difference between a claim to have a 9-foot sunflower in ones garden and one of a 9-foot Bigfoot.

I personally would not be surprised if there were some truth in Wagner's account, but the more astonishing aspects of it need backing up by supporting facts.

There's a reason for scepticism. People do tell lies and they are often simply mistaken. It doesn't matter if they are talking about flowers in thie garden, but on bigger issues, it does.

I read this book. Was Blessed by it. I believe in the release and help God gave her. I am sorry you fail to see the value of this book. It changed my life. I pray you will experience a change in Jesus name.
