    – Christopher Noel
    author, Impossible Visits
  • “Eric Metaxas is like C.S. Lewis but with jokes: intelligent, spiritually profound, and full of wit. In Miracles, Metaxas himself is a testament that genius and religious faith are not mutually exclusive.”
    – Susan E. Isaacs
    author Angry Conversations with God: A Snarky but Authentic Spiritual Memoir

    – Luis Palau
    International Evangelist

    – Kirsten Powers
    columnist for USA Today and The Daily Beast

Are you next?”
    – Emerson Eggerichs
    author of 2007 ECPA Book of the Year, Love and Respect.

    – Owen Strachan,
    Author, Risky Gospel

    – Dame Alice von Hildebrand
    author, Memoirs of a Happy Failure and The Privilege of Being a Woman

    – Os Guinness
    author Long Journey Home
  • “In his inimitably entertaining way, Eric Metaxas shows us that it is okay to believe in a world in which God still speaks and shows up in the cosmos and the lives of people just like you. By opening this book, you'll embark upon a divine conspiracy. Are you ready?”
    – Gregory Alan Thornbury

    – Erwin Raphael McManus
    Founder of MOSAIC and author, The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art

What are miracles, and why do so many people believe in them? What do they tell us about ourselves?  And what do we do with experiences that we cannot explain?

In Miracles, now a New York Times Bestseller, Eric Metaxas offers compelling — sometimes electrifying — evidence that there’s something real to be reckoned with, whatever one has thought of the topic before. Miracles is also a timely, thoughtful, and civil answer to the books of the "New Atheists" — Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris — who have passionately asserted not just the impossibility of miracles and the supernatural, but the outright harmfulness of belief in them.

Metaxas — whom ABC News has called a "witty ambassador for faith" — provides the measured and wide-ranging treatment the subject deserves, from serious discussion of the compatibility between faith and science to astonishing but well-documented stories of actual miracles from people he knows.

A more current, anecdotal, and personal version of C. S. Lewis’s 1947 book on the subject, Miracles is a powerfully winsome challenge that miracles are not only possible but are far more widespread than most of us ever might have imagined.

Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving Thomas Nelson (1999)

This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian, but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a 12-year old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims land in a strange new world.
