The history of miracles from 1650 to 1750 is a story of waves. Jane Shaw does a great job showing that history seldom moves in straight lines. If you are interested in Charles II's 92,000 miracles or George Fox's 150 Quaker miracles, this is a great introduction. My only complaint is that 1700-1750 does not get the same in depth coverage as 1650-1700.
