by Eric Metaxas
What are miracles, exactly? And what do they tell us about God, and about ourselves? Eric Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer, masterfully tackles these questions and more in his latest book, Miracles—What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life. In the book’s first section, Metaxas — whom ABC News has called a “witty ambassador for faith” — offers compelling evidence that there’s something real to be reckoned with and discusses the compatibility of faith with science. “What if science points us beyond science?” he asks. Thoughtful discourse of the miracle of life itself —“ Marveling at this is not inappropriate” — the existence of the universe, and the biblical miracles invites skeptics to reconsider and provides plenty of fodder for thought and conversation.
In the second section, Metaxas presents well-documented stories of miracles, offering evidence that they not only are possible, but more widespread than we imagine. As one reviewer said, “Get it, read it, discuss.”
