Publisher's Summary

"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this."

This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.

Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics, and deists on their own grounds and provides a poetic and joyous affirmation that miracles really do occur in our everyday lives.

sound, shrewd, well articulated, and well read.

Lewis politely and patiently builds a sound case for the reality of the Christian miracles. Along the way he corrects common misconceptions and errors including those made by regular people and even philosophers like David Hume. His shrewd insight and wealth of knowledge and excellent literary abilities make this one of my favorite books. In addition, the narrator read it very well.

Inspiring

Takes great concentration and focusing only on the book and nothing else, because the narrator is English and many difficult words and ideas are presented. It is very worth the effort.

Brilliant, but...

Though the caliber of the work is every bit worthy of its author, it is, at times, too dense for an audiobook. Perhaps better to purchase in print.

Beautiful book by the ultimate wordsmith

Miracles is simply lovely. From the first 2 min until the inspired epilogue, I loved this book. The reading was really good also.

Lewis at his Best, Brilliant

The intellectual agnostic will find themselves in a bar fight with a Navy SEAL, or in a viper pit wearing flip-flops. He knows the Skeptic because he was a brilliant one, a burned out wounded War vet, and then... the most unlikely convert, you will need to think about each chapter, worth the study.

Realistic presentation to support miracles.

Actually, I struggled to stay engaged. This book is one that demands to be read. It doesn't lend itself to a story line; it definitely needs to be studied a lot. Unless you plan to pause and rewind; I would recommend getting the hard copy instead. My five star story rating is for the quality of the information presented. CS Lewis is simply incredible.

CJB

This is a very philosophical book on the difference between naturalism and Christianity. There are many occasions where C.S. Lewis is very technical and the book requires your undivided attention in order to keep up. With that in mind, I would still recommend it for anyone wanting to view the world objectively and not anecdotely. He makes a multitude of great points to support the existence of miracles and the world that harbors them.
