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

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

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,

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

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.

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

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.

This is an intriguing read. It is so true that one will not see miracles if they have no faith. I'm sure I've had miracles in my life that I've counted as luck or coincidence. I've also seen true miracles when God stepped in and helped in a time of need. I'm not sure the book warrants a 4* but it's better than a 3*.

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

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.

“Can you do anything to bring about a miracle? The answer: God is God, we’re not. But for reasons unknown, just as God willingly relates with us, so also he partners with us. He makes miracles happen; through our prayers we can see them happen.” 0 likes
