More About the Book
America has a modern mystic and perhaps future saint in a stigmatic and convert from Mormonism who—swept into ecstasy hours at a time—fell into what she was told to call “divine” slumber” during which she allegedly was shown various poignant, vivid segments of Jesus’ life and death. The mystic, Cora Evans, originally of Utah, spelled out such details in a moving, often mesmerizing book, Refugee from Heaven: the Mystical Life of Christ—a book that has been flying off the shelves.
“Cora used rolls of shelf paper cut to the width of the typewriter; at the end of a day’s work, her output was twenty or thirty feet long! Cora’s words, written or spoken, are a feast for the inquiring mind.”
“The Refugee from Heaven is an account of the life of Jesus as presented to Cora Evans, a modern day mystic and stigmatic. While in deep states of ecstasy, Cora witnessed and recorded Jesus’ life in minute detail. Once you read it, you will want to read it again and again. And I think you will be moved to a renewed interest in scripture, insights into prayer and contemplation, and a more personal relationship with Jesus.”
“Simply the most insightful and intense reading on the humanity and divinity of Jesus, this easy to read book makes contemplation of our Lord easy and brings the mind closer to the life of Jesus and his message of love for each of us. The Eucharist is presented in a beautiful and intimate way. I recommend this book as a must read for all Catholics and non-Catholics.”
“This story will touch your heart. It provides so much insight into the relationship between Jesus and his mother Mary. Personalities come alive as you read about John the Baptist, the apostles, Mary Magdalene and many others.”
“While researching at the University of Notre Dame, I have discovered the work of Cora Evans. I have happily been able to obtain The Refugee from Heaven from our library. I have found this book very spiritually edifying, especially as I am making an act of Consecration, following the Montfort model. Cora Evans’ work has been a wonderful means of spiritual meditation and edification.”
