Publisher's Summary

The definitive book on miracles from the New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas.

What are miracles, and why do we believe in them? Is it for comfort, to explain the inexplicable, or do we simply long for a connection with something larger than ourselves? And why do some people dismiss them out of hand, as if they can never happen?

What Heaven is for Real did for near-death experiences, Miracles does for the miraculous - provides undeniably compelling evidence that there's something real to be reckoned with, whatever one has thought of this topic before. It provides a wide range of real stories of the miraculous and will engage the listener in the serious discussion that this fascinating and rich subject deserves.

Miracles is in some ways a more personal, anecdotal, and updated version of C. S. Lewis's 1947 book on the subject. Metaxas's Miracles is an exploration and an exhortation to view miracles as not only possible, but as far more widespread than most of us had ever imagined.

Eric Metaxas says it is not a question of whether miracles happen - the evidence that they do is overwhelming in this audiobook alone - but rather, what exactly are miracles, why do they happen, and how can we to understand them in our own lives?

Great book

Surprisingly, my favorite part of the book was early on: all the details of the way our earth came to be. I am now overwhelmed by the day and night sky and realize what a miracle of incomparable, innumerable aligned details this life-sustaining planet is. There are a greater number of miracle stories than I anticipated would be in this book. I was quite pleased with the extent of coverage. I think Eric Metaxas shared aspects of the Gospel in new ways that may help bring a non-believer to Christ. I thought the reader did a very nice job of bringing the author's personality to the work, though he missed the nuances of a line or two of three that should have had some ironic or comedic effect. I also think the marriage story went on WAY too long. I felt like the reader was even bored with it and wished the couple would divorce already. I wonder if the story in hard copy book would feel so drawn out. But overall, this is one of my all-time favorite books.

Miracles

Loved this book, great miraculous stories! But I didn't like how it portrayed being Catholics as basically a bad thing. Catholicism is very deep rooted and a great religion if you are willing to take the time and effort that it takes to be Catholic. The author has clearly never taken the time to understand the Catholic faith. Almost everyone who isn't Catholic thinks that Catholics don't know the bible because some cannot quote it verse for verse, that is not the point of the bible though, the bible is meant to be a tool to grow in faith and create a relationship with God. Practicing Catholics know the bible very well and use it as a tool to allow God to grow within us and be portrayed through us. That being said, there are a lot of Catholics and Christians that are not true Christians, they go through life to get "graces" for heaven by being good and obeying the bible, but they're missing the point of it all, if we only do things to get "graces", then we're not doing it because we want to, but because we feel we have to to achieve more graces... God wants us to WANT him. Being a true Christian is putting God first in every aspect of your life, listening to what he has to say and allowing him to work through you.

Good, I recommend it!

Not great, but pretty good! Surprisingly I liked the first half better, when he made a rationale case for the existence of Miracles. The second half of the book with the miracle stories dragged on a little, but not enough for me to not finish it. I also would love to do this book and then discuss it with him and/or others. The reader was a little slow as well. For the first time I actually listened to part of this at 1.25X normal speed - never have done that before.

Well conceived logical argument on miracles

Whether you believe in God or not, this work challenges us to think rationally about faith from every angle. Scientifically, philosophically and logically.

I purchased this after a linguistics professor at UNCG recommended it. It drew him back to his faith.

Great Book!

I found the material intellectually stimulating and spiritually challenging. I would recommend this book for any seeker or those who are well-established in their faith. It cuts across all lines. Thank you Eric.

Inspirational

Great stories that will inspire and encourage your faith. This book is divided into two halves. The first is a good apologetic defense of miracles in typical approachable Metaxas fashion. The second half is a collection of powerful stories of miracles.

Defines how truly GREAT a book like this can be...

I usually err to the side of being overly loquacious. For this book, I'll simply say this:

It is a truly astounding work. Beautifully researched and written, I cannot recommend it highly enough to do it justice. Get it. I got through it in three days, and I'm about to start listening to it again.
