More incredible stories of Gods intervention
Some things in life have no earthly explanation. Its just a God thing.
Miracles are not reserved for the characters in the Old and New Testaments; they happen to everyday people today, all around the world. Series creators Don Jacobson and K-LOVE Radio Network (14 million listeners) have joined together once again to produce a remarkable collection of modern-day miracles.
- A man who was mysteriously pulled from a broken truck as it sailed over a ravine
- A young boy who made a full recovery after being trapped under water for seven minutes
- A young girl who defied all medical prognoses and survived after her vehicle was hit by a train
- A mother, compelled to drive across town, who found her nine-year-old son stranded and alone at a busy intersection
Experiences like these are far more common than one may realize. From more than 1,000 occurrences, these more than 50 stories were chosen for their ability to amaze, encourage, and inspire all who live each day with both faith and doubt, victory and despair. Each day, the sunrise itself is a sign of Gods miraculous hand, and these stories prove that its only the beginning.
Don Jacobsons 28 years in publishing included serving as the president and owner of Multnomah Publishers, where he oversaw the production of more than 1,000 titles and the sale of more than 100 million books. He sold Multnomah to Random House in 2006. Don founded D.C. Jacobson & Associates, an author management company, so that he could continue working closely with authors. Don and his wife, Brenda, have four adult children.

The subtitle is "When miracles happen to everyday people." The book has 58 different stories from real people who give credit to God for the miracles that happened in their lives at these particular moments. The stories include physical recoveries or emerging unscathed from extraordinary circumstances (drowning, hit by a train, car accident, tornado), having moments of peace in the worst of circumstances (death, attack, diagnosis), and being at the right place at the right time, etc.
Overall, I liked this book but, without trying to open a can of worms, I do wonder about some of the stories and if it really was "a God thing" or someone reading too much into it. For example (not from this book), you may remember years ago when someone claimed the face of Jesus was imprinted on a grilled cheese sandwich. Was that really a God thing? Probably not. I think that the people who told the stories in this book really believe that God had a hand in their circumstances and I think that the majority of the stories really portrayed God's intervention in the lives of these ordinary people. I would just caution readers or hearers of stories like these to make sure that what is being said lines up with scripture. We have what we need in scripture to believe in the Holy God of the universe. I absolutely believe that God can and does perform miracles today but He does not need to because He has already performed the greatest miracles of all... becoming man, becoming sin on the cross, conquering death and returning to life, all so that we might be saved and live with Him in eternity!

This is a great "feel good" book. I enjoyed reading it a lot. It is about miracles that happen to all types of people in everyday situations. People came together to form this books, so it involves people of all walks of life. All the stories listed are pretty short, so you can always find an easy stopping point, if needed. The forty stories included are very encouraging, uplifting, and definitely made me thankful for what was around me. I finished reading each story thankful for God.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a little encouragement in their life.
You won't be disappointed!
