Overview
Do miracles still happen today? Did they ever happen? Dr. Henry Morris combines his scientific understanding of the world with the signature of a Creator God. Melding his own personal experience with observation about the world at large, he offers advice on knowing what constitues a "real" miracle. He divides miracles into "A", "B", or "C" grades: those involving interference with the laws of nature, providential miracles and normal answers to normal prayers. Find answers with this small and easy-to-read book.

Publishers Description
Do miracles happen in our time? Did they ever happen? And if the answer is yes, is any explanation possible? The key might lie in the fact that miracles are in the world, but not of the world. Leading Bible scholar Henry Morris reflects his deep love for the Bible by exploring recorded miracles, and shedding some light on miracles that occur today. From the feeding of many with just a few fish, to a discussion of today's healing miracles, Morris examines the following: Why many scientists dismiss miracles People who are convinced miracles happened to them The truth about "modern" miracles Can prayer bring about miracles?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I expected better  Sep 6, 2005
In Henry Morris' newest book, he writes more of a personal testimony rather than an exhaustive critique on miracles. Unlike Morris' other books, this one is one that could be seen in the inspirational section in the Christian bookstore. Rather than explain away all of the critic's objections to miracles, he shows how in his own life and the lives of others God performed miraculous signs that were most likely not due to chance. For this reason, I would not recommend this book to skeptics. Instead, I would recommend it to believers who don't know where to start when investigating miracles. Dr. Morris breaks down miracles into 3 different kinds; Grade A, Grade B, and Grade C. This way you can determine what kind of miracles might be happening today. I really wish Dr. Morris would have spent more time investigating recent miracle issues, like physical healing, speaking in tongues, etc. On the same note, I wish Dr. Morris would have spent less time dealing with evolution. Although I agree with most of Dr. Morris' opinions on evolution, I just don't how it was relevant to the issue. In many other cases, I felt like evolution was just a "rabbit trail" that didn't need to be mentioned. Other than that, I thought the book was a descent approach to miracles, but I expected something better from a coming from a scientist.
 
Disappointing: mostly anecdotal, not detailed  May 7, 2005
In all this was a light reading book that attempts to provide a general framework for the miracles of the Bible. By Morris's stratification, miracles can be divided into two main categories: those that break the laws of nature and those that do not. By the laws of nature, the author refers to the first two laws of thermodynamics, which is about as secure of a natural law as you can get. Generally, laws that create (such as the creation) are in the first class of miracles whereas the fall of Jericho (which could have been from a timely earthquake) might be considered a miracle in the second class.

There are a lot of nuggets in here. For example, the section on false miracles was actually quite good, and a solid reminder to the believer that not all seemingly miraculous things are in reality performed by God. For those not familiar with thermodynamics, you will get a refresher course here in layman's terms. It was also somewhat interesting to hear about some testimonies that are laced throughout the book.

But this was not a book to be anecdotal: I was expecting some hard-core science and philosophy and it just never materialized. Coming from a man of the stature of Henry Morris I expected a lot more. Don't get me wrong: the categorization of miracles in terms of the laws of thermodynamics was useful, but it wasn't enough.

The book is pretty simple to read and does have Scriptural support. The author seems to constantly repeat himself, so the book in content is actually quite a bit shorter than the length suggests. I was also disappointed in that the recommended reading list is essentially from books in the 1950's; surely something more modern must exist? His hermeneutical description of the gifts of the Spirit is tenuous at best.

This is an OK book to thumb through, but it is not the sort of scholarship you might expect or desire from Henry Morris. There is enough to keep some marginal interest, but Ill keep looking for a better text on the miracles of the Bible.
 
Essential ingredients for a convincing view on miracles  Mar 31, 2005
Dr. Morris did a fine job in this book. I have read numerous books and articles about miracles, but I think this is one of the more useful. However, this opinion needs some explanation. This book is a non-technical, rather popular work. So, I do not say this book is useful because it answers all problems and solves all questions and objections raised in the age-old debates about miracles. But this book contains just that selection of facts and views that is in my opinion most clarifying and decisive.
This qualification respects three things. First of all dr. Morris clarifies our thinking about miracles by distinguishing miracles of nature from miracles of providence. Second, he then sets forth his argument about miracles of nature based on the classic definition of miracles as violations of laws of nature. This definition however has one peculiar problem. Does not this definition require a perfect knowledge of all laws of nature, before one can justify the claim that a violation of one or more laws of nature did actually happen? Dr. Morris answers: No. And he points out that the first and second laws of thermodynamics are universally applicable and therefore provide the required standards that enable us to apply the definition. Thirdly, Morris recounts a number of actual miracles. He does so with appropriate prudence, but he does. That's important, because we must keep in mind that the question whether miracles do or did happen is actually a question of facts. Although logic does play an important part in historical investigation, it must be stressed that historical questions require historical evidence, and cannot be answered by mere logic. So, after dr. Morris did provide the conceptual framework to interpret alleged miracles, it is appropriate that he proceeds to recount a few historical facts that seem to qualify as miracles.
Another important feature of this book is the connection with theology. This is necessary to make sense of miracles. Although his theological remarks are at times a bit (too) speculative, especially with regard to the supposed relation between (the dimensions of) time, space and matter, and the Trinity, his link between the laws of thermodynamics and the doctrines of creation and sin are very helpful.
Having said that, I recall that this is not a very technical or sophisticated treatment of the subject, from which you may expect answers to all and every question. In fact, it does raise a number of questions, especially about the miraculous nature of miracles of providence. But I recommend this book because it provides in a comprehensive way some essential ingredients, both theological and scientific, for a convincing view on miracles. Especially valuable in this respect, and as far as I know unique in the discussions, is dr. Morris' proposal about the role of the laws of thermodynamics in identifying a miracle.
Readers that look for more sophisticated arguments can proceed with books like that of Warfield (Counterfeit Miracles), Burns (The Great Debate on Miracles), Houston (Reported Miracles), or the more recent treatments of Geivett & Habermas, Johnson, or Earman (to name a few). But, because in the discussion about miracles the thing that's actually at stake is one's worldview, I would first of all strongly recommend The Divine Challenge of John Byl.
