Synopsis of the book "Medjugorje after Twenty-One Years - The Definitive History" by Michael Davies

This website contains the sixth edition of his book which gives the most definitive English-language account available of the events which have been taking place since 1981 at Medjugorje in Herzegovina. Michael's wife Marija, who is Croatian, and his son Adrian, who is bi-lingual, have given him considerable help by translating material from the original Croatian, and the two bishops of the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno during the past twenty-years have made all the necessary official documentation available to him. The present bishop, Dr. Ratko Peric, wrote with regard to the fourth edition of the book:

"You write with Catholic conviction and Christian frankness is quite clear that you are driven by a desire for the truth in your investigations into the phenomenon of Medjugorje... Three episcopal commissions as well the entire Bishops' Conference have already been convinced that on the basis of the investigations that have been carried out to date it is impossible to confirm that there have been supernatural manifestations and messages in Medjugorje, but various superstitions are spreading. In your book you base yourself upon the official documents and teaching of the Church. There are far too many inaccurate versions of events spread throughout the world, above all by the efforts and the agency of those in the service of the so-called apparitions at Medjugorje."
