Knowing of many miracles that happened within my extended family and friends, I began reading this book knowing that “Miracles are For Real.” I found that miracles are more widespread than I thought. Many others have also seen miracles all of their lives.

Many people, especially non-Christians, do not believe that miracles have ever happened. Even some Christians believe that miracles have not happened since Biblical times. Wrong, they still happen. God is still all powerful. We just have to open

Very interesting and well researched book about miracles and whether they truly exist. Many first hand examples of miracles that have happened in peoples lives. It was good that this book also talked about people who truly have the gift of healing and those who faked it. Showing both sides of the coin is always a good idea. This book goes in depth about miracles of all kinds including stories about near death experiences which interest me because I had a near death experience shortly after my ol ...more
Yes, miracles still happen everyday in this age, yet there are some who need to see a miracle or the aftermath of one to truly believe.
This informative and fascinating book pulls together miracles from history and intermingles creatively with the present, causing the reader to grasp a clear understanding of miracles and how they touch and heal lives. Some of the points addressed in the book include:
What kind of miracle are you seeking, different types of miracles, false prophets, miracles and
According to the authors of this book, a miracle is defined as "a phenomenon performed or prompted by God, which science cannot explain, at a special time when God is making his will or his love known to an individual or many individuals". This book explains miracles from a Biblical perspective. What determines whether something is miraculous or not? An answer to simple prayer can be miraculous. A physical healing can be miraculous. The Hebrews considered everything to be a miracle. The "miracle ...more
I know personally that miracles really happen. I have experienced a few of my own in my lifetime and have heard the stories from my grandmother of miracles that she experienced. You might even say that my family has had a legacy of miracles. Even as I make that claim, I am still waiting for some miracles that I have sought from God for several years now.

I guess that is why I was interested in reading this book. I thought it would be good for building up my faith and I was right. In this volume,

Recommends it for: People who like examples.
I guess maybe I've been reading too much fiction lately, but this book took me forever to read (quite literally) because, well, it bored me to death. I guess this book would be good for someone who doesn't really know a whole lot about miracles or needs a lot of convincing.

Every chapter had example after example after example--I felt like the majority of the chapters were examples. Don't get me wrong, examples are important. It just felt like this book went a little overkill on the examples.

What a wonderful book!!! I will be re-reading this one for sure. This book was so hard to put down. Even when going abut my daily life, I found myself thinking about this book. and couldn't wait to get reading some more!

This is a well thought out book, and I recommend it for everyone. I remember thinking how big God is!!!

Miracles are real.

I found this book very interesting. I liked the way the authors intertwined stories of different kinds of miracles with their thoughts. It is always uplifting to hear that God is still in the business of miracles. I pray that they experience their own miracles. It is a good read. I know that God still gives us miracles, I also believe we can walk in His blessings.

Great read!

I really enjoyed "Miracles Are For Real". Amazing the miracles that were listed. The greatest part was the great faith and love of God that was presented throughout the book.
Phyllis A Rickabaugh
Very good ......

easy to follow and a good way to recognize the difference between a real miracle or not. I would recommend for anyone to read.
Susan Weber
A great book to get you thinking of the miracles in your life, and giving hope to those who need a miracle. Inspiring real stories of miracles, and some stories that leave you asking miracle or coincidence.
The authors are quite thorough regarding miracles. They even answer the question of why God says no sometimes. This is not a "pie in the sky, get yourself a miracle" book, but a carefully laid out, scriptural based treatis.
I read this book because a friend's story of healing was included and I knew it was real. I thought the book was balanced in the way the topic of miracles was discussed.
Mark A.
This is an amazing account of unexplainable miracles in the lives of others. It's both enjoyable to read and inspiring in its message.
Nicholas Bernard
