Book Summary:

The object of this book is to collect instances of ghosts, apparitions, and messages from the other twilight world which have come under Catholic cognizance or suggest Catholic interpretations.

This small collection is intended to illustrate occasions between the Catholic Church and the ghostly. They are not necessarily spiritual and even less spiritualistic. Religion colours most of these stories, but some merely have occurred to Catholics or in Catholic surroundings. Whatever prohibitions mark Catholic life, the faithful are not forbidden to see ghosts or to believe in them!

"Shane Leslie's Ghost Book provides what so many of us for so long have been looking for: a book of true ghost stories and supernatural experiences in accord with Catholic orthodoxy." - T.F. Sloan,

"This is a fantastic book to read... just don't read it at night!" - Christine Niles, Church Militant

5 Stars Real Ghost Stories from the Catholic Perspective
on August 24, 2017
Ghosts are big business today - in radio, on television, and all over the internet. They always have been, from the Bible's account of Samuel's ghost to the present. But what is a Catholic to make of all this? How do ghosts fit in with Heaven, hell, and Purgatory? Famous author and Catholic convert of the Chesterton/Belloc era (he was friends with both), Shane Leslie not only guides us authoritatively through the Church's teaching on ghosts and the afterlife, he tells some pretty chilling - and true - tales of hauntings; not even priests are immune to the eruption of the unseen. Quite simply the best book in English from the Catholic perspective!

5 Stars Hauntings in the Rectory
on August 28, 2017
In one particularly memorable ghost story, Shane Leslie recounts the unusual haunting of a parish rectory, which began subsequent to the death of the previous pastor. The new priest was seemingly directed by strange tappings and rappings to go investigate a piece of furniture, wherein he discovered a list of names for whom it had been intended that Mass be said, having been left unfinished by the former pastor's untimely death. When Masses had finally been said for each of those souls, the haunting abruptly stopped. Shane Leslie brings a solidly Catholic perspective and sensibility to the consideration of a phenomenon that has been believed all but universally across cultures and millennia.

on August 28, 2017
"Ghost Book" at first contains a discussion on ghosts and the attitude of the Catholic Church towards the phenomenon and then quickly dives into the Catholic ghost stories themselves. A wonderful little book that isn't just for a dark and stormy night (even if that's when I read most of it).
