Miracles: what they are, why they happen, and how they can change your life
What are miracles, and why do we believe in them? Is it for comfort, to explain the inexplicable, or do we simply long for a connection with something larger than ourselves? And why do some people dismiss them out of hand, as if they can never happen?
What Heaven is for Real did for near-death experiences, Miracles does for the miraculous--provides undeniably compelling evidence that there's something realto be reckoned with, whatever one has thought of this topic before. It provides a wide range of real stories of the miraculous and will engage the reader in the seriousdiscussion that this fascinating and rich subject deserves.
Miracles is in some ways a more personal, anecdotal, and updated version of C. S. Lewis's 1947 book on the subject. Metaxas's Miracles is an exploration and anexhortation to view miracles as not only possible, but as far more widespread than most of us had ever imagined.
Eric Metaxas says it is not a question of whether miracles happen--the evidence that they do is overwhelming in this book alone--but rather, what exactly aremiracles, why do they happen, and how can we to understand them in our own lives?
