After reading "Amazing Grace" and "Bonhoeffer" (two books which deeply affected me), I was very much looking forward to his new book "Miracles." In the first half of the book, Metaxas does an excellent job introducing the reader to what IS a miracle, and does a great job addressing miracles in the realm of science and the universe: "What if science points us beyond science" the author asks. He cites Bonhoeffer: "We are to find God in what we know, not in what we don't know." Metaxas does an excellent job defending miracles and also the Christian faith in these early chapters.
The 2nd half of the book tell the "miracle stories": conversion, healing, angelic and variety. Reading through each one (some only a couple pages, some longer), deepened my faith. I will continue to recall these miracles in the years ahead and applaud Mr. Metaxas in writing such a great book. I hope the "mainstream" of American culture takes note of this book and its message. It is desperately needed.
