Publisher's Summary

The definitive book on miracles from the New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas.
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 listener 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 audiobook alone - but rather, what exactly are miracles, why do they happen, and how can we to understand them in our own lives?

Well conceived logical argument on miracles

Whether you believe in God or not, this work challenges us to think rationally about faith from every angle. Scientifically, philosophically and logically.

I purchased this after a linguistics professor at UNCG recommended it. It drew him back to his faith.

Great book

Surprisingly, my favorite part of the book was early on: all the details of the way our earth came to be. I am now overwhelmed by the day and night sky and realize what a miracle of incomparable, innumerable aligned details this life-sustaining planet is. There are a greater number of miracle stories than I anticipated would be in this book. I was quite pleased with the extent of coverage. I think Eric Metaxas shared aspects of the Gospel in new ways that may help bring a non-believer to Christ. I thought the reader did a very nice job of bringing the author's personality to the work, though he missed the nuances of a line or two of three that should have had some ironic or comedic effect. I also think the marriage story went on WAY too long. I felt like the reader was even bored with it and wished the couple would divorce already. I wonder if the story in hard copy book would feel so drawn out. But overall, this is one of my all-time favorite books.
