    Miracles do still happen!

    Miracles Are For Real (What Happens When Heaven Touches Earth) by James L. Garlow and Keith Wall explores that thought.

    There are true believers, people who have witnessed miracles in their own lives and they know without as doubt that blessing came from God, and there are skeptics who dissect everything. They believe there is a scientific reason for everything. This book explores both sides of the coin and gives stories and examples to back up their thoughts. It also discusses miracles from the Bible and looks at them closely.

    I have mixed feelings about this book, but I always do when it comes to scientific explanations, that always tends to turn me away. It was basically a good book; it took me a while to read it, there is a lot of information in it. I enjoyed the different accounts of people and their divine intervention. I would recommend it to other people.

    I received this book free from Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group as part of their Blogger Review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    I admit it, I was skeptical. There lurked within me the suspicion that this would be another one of those books that not only claimed miracles were real (something I agree with), but would then let you in on the "secret" of how you could get your very own miracle (something I would be predisposed to disagree with).

    The surprising reality was the discovery that this is not only an inspiring book detailing numerous miracles, both modern and historical, but a thoughtful and balanced one as well. Authors James Garlow and Keith Wall qualified the conditions of a "true" miracle, and discussed other things like "complex answers to prayer" or intriguing "coincidences" that may indeed be supernatural in origin but are not necessarily miraculous in nature. I appreciated the historical overview of a number of miracles recorded since the time of Christ, and I was relieved when the authors did not attempt to persuade readers that they were somehow missing something in their walk with Christ if they had not experienced a miracle. Indeed, James Garlow's personal testimony of his wife's battle with cancer lent legitimacy and sincerity to the book, and underscored the authors' intent; go to God with big expectations knowing that He is able to do anything, and knowing that He delights in our faith. We must be willing to accept that ultimately God knows and does what is best, but this shouldn't stop us from asking, in fact, it should encourage the Christian to think bigger and pray more. I'll conclude with what the authors claim is the most significant thing you'll read in "Miracles are for Real", as I found myself agreeing wholeheartedly - "Unbelief tends to release the power of the evil one, whereas faith in God releases the power of his Spirit."

    I received a complimentary copy of this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    Do you believe miracles still happen? In Miracles are for Real, by James L Garlow and Keith Wall, this question is explored.

    We tend to throw the statement, "It's a miracle" around quite a bit. We may be referring to something truly unexplainable by the laws of science. Or we may be speaking of an answer to prayer. Or maybe, we just mean, "Wow, I'm surprised that this event happened!"

    For the purposes of this book, the authors define a miracle as "an event that extends beyond all known scientific laws." Each chapter illustrates, with documented stories, instances of modern-day miracles, including healings, financial miracles, and even people being raised from the dead. The authors explore ideas about why miracles happen and why they don't.

    I found this book fascinating reading. I enjoyed the stories and found them faith-building. We will never know why God sometimes chooses to act supernaturally while at other times we don't see an immediate answer to our prayers, but I appreciated the reminder that this book gave me that God does hear us and He is still involved in our world today—whether he acts supernaturally in my life or whether His plan is just to be with me in my trials.

    I was provided a free review copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers. All opinions are my own.

    This is a book subtitled What Happens When Heaven Touches Earth.

    The book is about miracles and the authors are very scientific in their discussion of what constitutes a miracle as opposed to something else. I like the way they categorize the "inexplicable".

    1) Simple Answered Prayer

    2) Complex Answered Prayer

    3) Coincidence

    4) Against All Odds event

    5) A Miracle

    I was glad to read this book because it wasn't just a collection of many people telling their "miracles". The authors only included verified stories that fit their definition of a miracle. That is not to say that God is not involved in each of the other instances as well. Answering prayers is to us a "miracle" because we cannot see how the Lord can answer our prayers at times. Or the lining up of several coincidences to provide for a certain event can certainly seem like a miracle and certainly at times the hand of God may be involved in this as well. But the miracles are events that extend beyond all the scientific known laws.

    An example is of a person who had their entire eye removed due to a tumor. Later during a miraculous healing this person can now see from that eye socket ...where no eye is present. This has been proven through doctors' examinations and numerous tests such as covering the good eye and using only the socket to see things.

    This is an inspirational book for those who believe in miracles and a wonderful resource for those who are unsure whether miracles exist and tend to want to have explanations for things that happen in life.

    I was blessed by reading this book, and challenged in my thinking of miracles as well. Excellent book!

    I received a copy of this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

    According to the authors of this book, a miracle is defined as "a phenomenon performed or prompted by God, which science cannot explain, at a special time when God is making his will or his love known to an individual or many individuals". This book explains miracles from a Biblical perspective. What determines whether something is miraculous or not? An answer to simple prayer can be miraculous. A physical healing can be miraculous. The Hebrews considered everything to be a miracle. The "miracles" were described as "mighty works of God". This included both extraordinary and everyday events.

    Each chapter discussing a "type" of miracle and gives a real life story of it. Some for example, the authors discuss receiving help from an angel sent by God. Then they go on to tell the story of real people who actually believe that an angel was sent to help them in their situation.

    After reading this, you may see a lot more things in your life that truly are miracles. Miracles aren't just for people who need healed of a disease or someone who is in a desperate situation. God can perform miracles in your life.

    I enjoyed reading this book. I found myself looking forward to reading about the real-life miracles in each chapter. I know there are a lot of a hoaxes out there, but I don't feel this book is like that. I've seen miracles in my own life and/or in the lives of family, so I know they are real. The real-life miracle stories will touch your heart. If you want to learn more about miracles and feel inspired, this book is for you.

    I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
