JoelB5 Stars Out Of 5Miracles by C. S. LewisSeptember 6, 2018JoelBQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This masterfully-written book addresses whether miracles occur and what they are. The author goes to great pains to define words and examine beliefs both modern and ancient. Lewis defines Miracle "to mean an interference with Nature by supernatural power." That requires a good deal of definition as to what is meant by the terms Nature and supernatural. Lewis discusses the beliefs of Naturalists and Supernaturalists and the logic involved with holding either viewpoint.
Lewis writes "The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man."
Lewis, of course, is a Supernaturalist and believes that miracles do occur, but his view of miracles is far from simplistic. Lewis' views on the afterlife as reflected in the appearances of the resurrected Christ make for interesting reading as do his discussions regarding prayer.
This book is not light reading, but it has something of the conversational tone of Mere Christianity and other writings by Lewis. I found it useful to underline and make notes in the margins. If one is familiar with the Chronicles of Narnia, you might see some of the ideas presented in this book played out in the various stories.
While a rigorous intellectual understanding of the Gospel is not necessary to be a Christian, this book may be very helpful in promoting clarity and assurance when reading the Bible and discussing the Gospel with non-believers.
