Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life

 
9780147516497: 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 real to 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 serious discussion 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 an exhortation 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 are miracles, why do they happen, and how can we understand them in our own lives?

Review:

Metaxas has done it again....he presents hope for the tone deaf who cannot hear the splendor of the music of the spheres, and he brings in sunlight for modern cave dwellers who have become accustomed to only shadows on the wall of our increasingly windowless world. (Os Guinness)

Both erudite and intimate, Metaxas invites even the scoffer to wonder. ( Kirkus Reviews)

No Christian thinker today combines reason and wit, argument and imagination, to greater effect. (Joseph Loconte, Associate Professor of History at the King's College, NYC)

It comes with some weighty endorsements, and attempts to navigate the middle ground between enthusiasm and scepticism. ( Together Magazine)

In some ways a more personal, anecdotal and updated version of C. S. Lewis's 1947 book on the subject, Miracles is an exploration and an exhortation to view miracles as not only possible, but as far more widespread than most of us had ever imagined. ( Edition Magazine)

Book Description:

Book Description Plume Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The #1 bestselling author of Bonhoeffer explores miracles in an inspiring response to the New Atheists Not since C. S. Lewis in 1947 has an author of Eric Metaxas s stature undertaken a major exploration of the phenomenon of miracles. In this groundbreaking work, Metaxas examines the compatibility between faith and science and provides well-documented anecdotal evidence of actual miracles. With compelling sometimes electrifying evidence that there is something real to be reckoned with, Metaxas offers a timely, civil, and thoughtful answer to recent books by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris. Already a New York Times bestseller, Miracles will be welcomed by both believers and skeptics who will find their minds opening to the possibilities. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780147516497
