Top Biblical Researcher Reveals New Truths of Fatima

Leading U.S. biblical authority releases controversial new book on Fatima, on eve of 95th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady to three shepherd children in Portugal in 1917.


Arroyo Grande, CA – Could the apparition of the Virgin Mary, seen nearly a century ago by three Portuguese shepherd children, hold the key to our future? What does the Catholic bible say about the prophecies of Fatima? Is there a fourth Fatima prophecy?

Award-winning researcher and biblical authority Bob Thiel, Ph.D., answers these questions and more in Fatima Shock!, a detailed and compelling narrative on how Fatima and future apparitions could likely affect the Western, Islam, and Asian worlds in the coming years.

The shrine of the Virgin Mary has long held spiritual importance to hundreds of millions of Catholics, worldwide, and Dr. Thiel doesn’t disappoint as he reveals the impact Fatima continues to have. Discussed are the roles various popes and bishops played in Fatima, including the late Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. While John Paul had always credited the Virgin of Fatima with saving his life during his 1981 assassination attempt, Pope Benedict now believes ’the Virgin’s prophecy still hasn’t been fully realized’ – which represents a reversal of his previous views.

After nearly two years of analyzing the Fatima messages and various other prophecies, Dr. Thiel – citing primarily Catholic sources – often comes to different and controversial conclusions about the origins of the rosary and four Marian dogmas, what was actually seen in Fatima in 1917 versus what most believe happened, and why various Marian innovations were opposed by Catholic saints.

Dr. Thiel also details what has already occurred in fulfillment of Fatima’s prophecy and what will likely happen beyond 2012.
