The nature miracle stories of Jesus—walking on the water or feeding thousands with a small amount of food, for example—are so spectacular that many find them a problem, whether historical, philosophical, or even theological. This is the first book to tackle this problem head on. Do the stories reflect events in the life of the historical Jesus, or are they myths or legends? Or, perhaps they grew out of parables or from more ordinary events into the incredible stories we now have. Or, again, perhaps this the wrong approach! A group of high-ranking biblical historians, philosophers, and theologians with very diverse views set out to provide possible answers. Contributors include: • James Crossley • Eric Eve • Craig S. Keener • Michael Levine • Timothy J. McGrew • Scot McKnight • Graham H. Twelftree • Ruben Zimmermann

This eye-opening book will teach you how to step back, examine important moments in your life, and recognize the miracles that are constantly occurring all around you. As part of their own spiritual quest, miracle experts, Katie Mahon and Joan Luise Hill, discovered that when we are truly awake and present, miracles abound. It started by sharing their own stories which quickly prompted an unexpected outpouring of stories from others. Stories that had never been told, stories that didn't seem to matter, and stories that had been forgotten. While some defy explanation, others invite us to take a closer look, to discover common ground with each other, and to seek meaning in a whole new way. The stories of courage, forgiveness, gratitude, faith, hope, and love from The Miracle Collectors, allow us to notice and appreciate the miracles that are available to each one of us, while opening us up to a part of the Divine mystery we can absorb and understand. By using Take a Miracle Moment challenge at the end of every chapter you open the path for your own reawakening of the spirit. Perhaps you too will become a miracle collector.

Can science, psychology, and biology explain miracles? This three-volume set attempts to answer that question, presenting the latest, as well as classic, thinking and research regarding miracles from fields that include psychology, psychiatry, theology, biology, and history. We have all heard of what seem miraculous events, which have surfaced across history. They range from stigmata and bleeding icons to deadly tumors that disappear and healers who succeed just by laying hands on the afflicted; from people who can predict unexpected events to so-called mediums and those who can allegedly see and speak with the dead. These books, led by an eminent scholar who serves as series editor for the Praeger series Psychology, Religion, and Spirituality, examine miracles of body, mind, and spirit, presenting the most recent research and writing on these uncommon events, aiming to bring hard science to some of the most persistent and peculiar phenomena associated with the human race. Can science, psychology, and biology explain miracles? This three-volume set attempts to answer that question, presenting the latest, as well as classic, thinking and research regarding miracles from fields that include psychology, psychiatry, theology, biology, and history. From news of a crippled woman who left her wheelchair and walked after an evangelist prayed over her, to stories of people who died on the operating table only to be revived to tell of bright lights and the pathway to the afterlife, we've all heard of what seem miraculous events. They have surfaced across history. They range from stigmata and bleeding icons to deadly tumors that disappear, and healers who succeed just by laying hands on the afflicted; from people who can predict unexpected events to so-called mediums and those who can allegedly see and speak with the dead. Some miracles are intricately tied to religious beliefs, but there are millions of people who ascribe to no particular religion, yet still believe that things happen that defy all laws of nature, and thus defy scientific explanation. In these books, eminent scholar J. Harold Ellens and his team of expert contributors examine miracles of body, mind, and spirit, presenting the most recent research and writing on these uncommon events as they aim to bring hard science to some of the most persistent—and peculiar—phenomena associated with the human race.

A Healer’s Guide to Miracles has three parts: theory, practice, and mediations. The first part, theory, defines what a miracle is. Next, miracles are discussed in terms of the mental, emotional, and physical. The last chapter of part one looks deeply into the role that forgiveness plays in healing. In part two, practice, there is a format similar to part one. First, the physical environment of the healer is discussed. The next chapter deals with the practical aspects of healing the mind. A chapter is devoted to the topic of love in healing. This chapter goes deeply into the roles of compassion, empathy, and faith in healing. Finally, there is a chapter titled “Healing Yourself – Divine Mind Healing.” This is a meditation that integrates the deepest principles of A Course in Miracles with the healing of specific symptoms. Part three is titled “Mediations – The Experience of Miracles.” This part contains four mediations. Each of these helps bring about the “miracle–minded” state that is necessary in order to heal and be healed.

Miracles Blossom from the Spirit Within is a mystical, supernatural, spiritual journey into the true power of miracles. While visiting Paris, France, a lifetime dream, the author experiences a revelation from the Holy Spirit that she appropriately calls a God whisper. The Holy Spirit telepathically communicates to her an outline of explicit directions for inclusive materials to be ascertained for this book on miracles. The most comprehensive, thought-provoking portion of this message was that God wanted people to know that his love was unconditional and he was still present working miracles in each of our lives. In John 4:48, Jesus said, Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders, you will never believe. God sends this book on miracles as a love offering to his earthly disciples. Read and believe in miracles!
