    – Patricia Heaton, Emmy-award-winning actress, Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle

Miracles is the sort of book that–once you’ve read it–you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life.”
    – Kathie Lee Gifford, Emmy-award-winning host, The Today Show

“[Metaxas] has taken a difficult and often controversial topic and presented it with clarity. Both erudite and intimate, Metaxas invites even the scoffer to wonder.” – Kirkus Reviews

“VERDICT: An alluring read…” – Library Journal

“The realm of miracles is the ultimate no-go-area for tough-minded writers. I can’t think of any author but Eric Metaxas to enter this unknown territory and come back with a book that is a miracle in itself: A dense, edgy and awe-inspiring report on the possibility of the impossible.”
     — Dr. Markus Spieker, Reporter for German National Television and best-selling author of Hollywood Cinema in Nazi Germany

“If you’re a skeptic, read this book with an open mind and you might just discover that miracles are real. If you’re already a believer, be ready to be inspired. My friend Eric Metaxas combines deeply-compelling reasoning with some of the most encouraging true stories of miracles you will ever read.”
    – Kirsten Powers, columnist for USA Today and The Daily Beast

“I can’t think of a greater compliment then to say this is a book C.S. Lewis would have been jealous he didn’t write!
    – Brad StineActor, Author, Comedian, Spy.

“He wears a killer pocket square and horn-rimmed glasses, but Kierkegaard yet lives. In a world painted gray by materialism, neo-paganism, and steely secularity, Eric Metaxas’s shrewd and stirring musings splash the canvas with the brilliant colors of faith, hope, and the possibility of reality-beyond-reality. Read this book to confront your doubt. Read this book to face down your fear of the afterlife. Read this book to reenchant your humanity…”
    – Owen Strachan, Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History, Southern Seminary & Boyce College; Author, Risky Gospel

“As a secular reader, I come to such books with a certain resistance. Metaxas won me over instantly by meeting me where I live. His intellectual honesty, coupled with an open-hearted wonder at the sheer breadth of human experience, is irresistible.”
    – Christopher Noel, author, Impossible Visits, Producer/Director, “Woven Lou”

“With this beautiful and moving and thoughtful new book, Eric Metaxas proves yet again to be a writer of the first order. He is a storyteller, this book at once humble and exuberant, honest and astonishing, filled with awesome proof of how God works in our lives here, now. In a culture that daily celebrates the parched ground of cynicism, Miracles is a cool rain of intelligent and loving and God-fearing truth.”
    – Bret Lott, Best-selling author of Jewel; Non-fiction editor, Crazyhorse

“Metaxas has done it again. In these colourful and varied stories from his friends, and his own trenchant commentary, he challenges the mind-forged manacles of much current thinking. In doing so, he presents hope for the tone deaf who cannot hear the splendour of the music of the spheres, and he brings in sunlight for modern cave dwellers who have become accustomed to only shadows on the wall of our increasingly windowless world.”
    – Os Guinness, Author of The Call

“As Metaxas himself says, feel free to gulp.  Reading Miracles is one of those life altering experiences.  It gives you gratitude for the molecular composition of water, the distance of the earth from the sun, and even the exact placement of Jupiter.  You will laugh, and you will cry, and after being immersed in Metaxas’ clear, rational analysis, you just might find yourself looking for your own miracle at any moment. I loved it.”
    – Caroline Coleman, author of Loving Soren and the blog “A Chapter A Day”

“In Miracles, Eric Metaxas tackles the question of the supernatural like a chess master: anticipating and outmaneuvering the skeptics at every turn. With irresistible logic — and great empathy — he shows why we can believe in “God acting from beyond this world.”No Christian thinker today combines reason and wit, argument and imagination, to greater effect. Believers will find their faith strengthened and their love for God deepened. Doubters may find their fortress of objections withering away. If a single volume could scatter the disciples of scientism into doleful exile, this is it. An immensely provocative and rewarding book.”
    – Joseph Loconte, Assoc. Professor of History at the King’s College, NYC and author, The Searchers: The Search for Meaning in the Valley of Doubt and God, Locke, and Liberty: The Struggle for Religious Freedom in the West.

Miracles is a clarion call to any who, like Dante, have lost la speranza dell altezza.”
   – Dame Alice von Hildebrand, author, Memoirs of a Happy Failure and The Privilege of Being a Woman

“Get ready to change the way you see reality forever.”
     — Erwin Raphael McManus, Founder of MOSAIC and author of The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art

“Eric Metaxas is like C.S. Lewis but with jokes: intelligent, spiritually profound, and full of wit.”
    – Susan E. Isaacs, author Angry Conversations with God: A Snarky but Authentic Spiritual Memoir
