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.
