Product Description

Part of the debate over God's existence centers on questions about the possibility and "provability" of miracles. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. C. John Collins provides a thorough exegetical foundation for discussing God's action in the world within the framework of biblical Christian theology. He begins by presenting and contrasting the options within traditional Christian theism. He then explores the biblical passages that support a classically theistic foundation and relates these results to the philosophical theological, scientific, and apologetic questions that this rises. In so doing, he effectively takes on the God-of-the-gaps position and answers with a persuasive "yes" the crucial question of whether it is intellectually responsible to embrace the biblical view of God's action in the world.

    In this book, Dr. Collins (currently Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis) provides an overview and an exegetical study of the theology of Miracles. The book begins with a summary of the various views of God and His ongoing work in the creation. Both Christian and non-Christian views are presented, with a primary focus on three traditional Christian perspectives: providentialism, supernaturalism, and occasionalism. In the Biblical exegesis portion of the text, Collinsdemonstrates that the supernaturalist view is most consistent with a variety of Biblical texts. Finally, the relevance of this material to the scientific study or origins is presented. In particular, the Intelligent Design approach to the science of origins found to be consistent with the supernaturalist view of God's work in His creation.This book is concise and well written, and summarizes opposing views in a fair fashion even while holding forth a particular position. It's contribution to the field is unique both in terms ofBiblical exegesis and in the breadth of rival views covered. The book's subject is clearly relevant to "science and faith"kissues, and is recommended as background for anyone studying in that arena.
