"I am the happiest man in the world because God entrusted me with this mission." InJohn of God: The Brazilian Healer Who's Touched the Lives of Millions, a seemingly average rancher from Abadiânia, Brazil, offers a powerful message of love, compassion, and hope for humanity. João Teixeira de Faria, the healer and medium known as John of God, allows "spirit doctors" to take over his body three times a week to miraculously treat the thousands of people from all over the world who come in need of remedy. John of God has fulfilled his mission as a medium for more than forty-eight years, making numerous pilgrimages around the world. Drawn by the hope of instantaneous healing, over eight million believers have proceeded in front of him throughout his life, as tens of thousands journey to Brazil each year to see John of God and his home, the Casa de Dom Inácio de Loyola, which is designed to accommodate hundreds of visitors each day. Despite all the media attention paid to this inter-nationally praised healer, little has been revealed about his personal life. Translator Heather Cumming and photographer Karen Leffler have traveled with John of God and chronicled his life and work. What began as an endeavor to document the testimonials of his remarkable healings has now become the first complete, authorized portrait of his world. Stirring words and vivid photographs -- many of which capture the haunting spiritual energy that surrounds John of God and the Casa -- take us on an affecting and deeply personal journey with the humble medium who offers hope for people with none. The result is an intimate portrait of an ordinary individual in extraordinary circumstances and a reading experience that will bring readers of every persuasion closer to their faith. To learn more about John of God and his mission, go to www.beyondword.com and www.friendsofthecasa.org.

Karen Leffler is a published freelance photographer and a "daughter of the Casa." Her many trips to the Casa de Dom In�cio have resulted in wonderful light-filled images of the healing energy and sacred space. She is a Buddhist, Qigong practitioner, and "spirit photographer" and lives in Weston, Connecticut. Visit her website at www.spiritfotos.com and www.worthathousandwords.info.

Heather Cumming is one of the official translators for John of God, a "daughter of the Casa," and shamanic practitioner. She grew up in Brazil riding with the wranglers, whose foreman was the local shaman. As a translator, she assists John of God and the Spirit Guides to see up to two thousand people a day. As a Reiki master in the United States, she offers healing practices and leads tours to visit John of God in Brazil. She lives in Westport, Connecticut, as well as Abadi#226;nia, Brazil.
