Miracles: A Journalist Looks at Modern Day Experiences of God's Power

FREE BOOK: Miracles    
By Tim Stafford  


Award-Winning Journalist Takes a Close Look at Modern-Day Miracles   

You Believe God Can Still Do Miracles, But How Do You Know Which Stories Are True?

A blind man suddenly sees. A lame man gets up and walks. A little boy is raised from the dead. You believe the biblical accounts that these miracles happened, but do you believe eye-witness reports that miracles still happen today?

Between shady faith-healers, weeping madonnas, and gimmicks like holy land water, it's difficult--even foolish--to believe every miracle account we hear. So how do we discount the fakes without missing out on the real miracles in the process?

Award-winning journalist Tim Stafford shares captivating stories of modern-day miracles, wrestling over what is credible and what isn't.

But more than that, he offers wisdom and insight to help you figure out the role miracles should play in your faith. Should you expect miracles? Ignore them? Pray for them? How active is God in the world today? And could he be more active in your own life?

Learn how to explore these questions with wisdom and honesty, growing your faith and hope along the way.

Miracles give us hope. But while readers are fascinated by stories of miracles, they aren't always sure which ones to believe.

Stafford takes a careful look at miraculous events in our modern world--some hard to accept and others hard to deny--then places them in a historical and biblical context.

Along the way he explores questions about where and under what circumstances miracles occur today, and what role they should play in the lives of Christians.

"Tim Stafford puts the right person at the center of miracle stories: not the charismatic leader through whom miracles come, nor the person who is healed, but God himself."
--David Neff, editor in chief, Christianity Today

"Veteran journalist Tim Stafford does best what good journalists do best: reports on the world of miracles with neither skepticism nor naivete but with clarity and reverent honesty. A remarkable achievement."
--Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
