Book Review: Miracles by Eric Metaxas

Good morning Bookaholics, and a fine morning it is too. The October sun is shining brightly here in Scotland.I am sorry there hasn't been a blog for a couple of weeks but I have been really busy getting my first book ready for launch and publication. In my spare time I have been reading this fascinating book on Miracles. 

Miracles are something that have always fascinated me, and this book did not disappoint. This is not an on the surface, this is what happened to me book. It is a well thought out and in depth look at miracles. It approaches it from many different angles. Firstly it looks the miracles in the bible and why these should be held to be true. There is overwhelming evidence that these did happen. The next section of the book looks at conversion miracles and the damascus road experiences of several, often well known, people. The discussion about C.S. Lewis's conversion was, to me, particularly interesting. 

The final part of the book looks at miracles which happen today. This outlines many different miracles including, but not limit do, healing miracles. It does not gloss over the facts that some people may not be healed and God has his own purposes in this. Joni Erickson Tada is given as an example.

I was given this book as a pre order copy from the publishers. I was not at any time asked to provide a positive review. The review is based on my fully reading, and engaging with, the book.

This is a book which is well worth preordering. Links are given below

That's it for another week bookaholics. I look forward to seeing you back here soon. Until then keep reading.
