We should not be surprised when miraculous things happen in our midst.
Still, many of us are intimidated at the thought of miracles, and we stop short of seeking them so we won't disappoint God with our lack of faith, or--if we're being honest--so we won't be disappointed by God should he not deliver the goods.
In Miracle Work Jordan Seng reflects on the possibilities and limitations of ministry that relies on the power of God. And he helps us prepare ourselves for God to work through us in the lives of others.

"This instructional book encourages all believers to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit and become active participants in God's supernatural ministries, such as the ministries of intercession, prophecy, healing, and spiritual deliverance. . . . This book is recommended to anyone interested in religious studies, demonology, and spirituality."
"Jordan Seng has shared the principles from his book Miracle Work at our Youth With A Mission training schools all over the Pacific and has effectively equipped many of our workers to step out and pray for the sick and move in supernatural power. He doesn't write from a theological ivory tower. His teaching is backed up with practical stories and experiences from the trenches. I know that Jordan and the church he pastors are truly missional, practicing the principles laid out in Miracle Work on the streets and in the neighborhoods where real people live and hurt. Miracle Work will equip you to do the same!"
" Miracle Work should be the go-to primer for anyone who seeks to minister in the Spirit. It clearly comes from an experienced yet intelligent, humble yet biblical, level-headed yet open practitioner, and I have not read a finer, nor a more accessible, book on supernatural ministry. Read, if you dare."
"Jordan Seng suggests that 'supernatural ministry is the most countercultural thing there is.' Employing the always engaging power of anecdote he describes how he has seen God work supernaturally in countless lives, inviting his readers to discover the same for themselves. The experienced presence of God leads to his transforming power and can render ordinary believers extraordinary as they seek to take part in 'miracle work.'"
"Instantly engaging. Miracle Work is down to earth and practical, and full of great stories. Jordan's book has inspired me to seek more of the Holy Spirit's power in our youth ministry and given some very easy ways to apply these concepts."
"When people are suffering, they don't need normal. They need something different. Fortunately, God provides it through you. The great coaching in this book will explain how you can get involved in miracle work and bring God's love to the world."
"Jordan Seng's book is extraordinarily helpful because it answers the 'How?' and 'So what?' questions being asked by real people. I've seen nothing else like it. It's for everyone looking for sane, intelligent, practical instruction about the miraculous power of God in the twenty-first century."
"Regarding supernatural or miraculous events, thirty-six years in ministry and studying the history of the church have taught me this: they swell, recede and then are renewed. This pattern has happened in my own life. If you or your church are in a moment where you need some guidance on catching and riding a wave of the Spirit, you will find in Jordan Seng's Miracle Work enthusiastic, but gentle and experienced, guidance."
