Miracles reverberate through history. Not merely events of the ancient world, they grace our historical moment as well. The annals of the church and Scripture are filled with extraordinary stories of God's signs and wonders. Should we take the time to listen to them, our lives can be immeasurably enriched.
In myriad ways, miracles reveal God's plans and purposes. They speak of His character and love for us. Some see history solely as a succession of dates and wars and empires--an epic without glimpses of the eternal. But history is more, far more, than this. It is a tapestry gilded by threads of redemption. To look upon them, to look upon miracles, is to be drawn to the place of faith--the realm of a great and mighty God.
For thousands of years, the hope of heaven has called to people through miracles. When we stop to consider their stories, Gods voice calls to us as well. In our age of constant innovation, technological achievement, and the sad tendency to see ourselves as the captains of our fate, we may be tempted to make little time for miracles, or give little credence to them. But to live our lives without a sense of the miraculous is to live impoverished lives. Our word for miracle comes from the Latin word mirari, to wonder. And well might we wonder when we consider the nature of miracles and their purpose. It is here that a grand conversation beckons. God has been our help in ages past. He is our hope for years to come. To learn of holy events and people supremely, to look upon the Savior is to see the power of God, and how He has always sought to draw us to Himself. He is our eternal home. Miracles point the way there. In this audiobook are scenes and lives touched by eternity, settings of almighty declaration, moments marked by deliverance, by mercy, or visionary unfoldings of Gods divine intent. Kevin Belmonte provides learned insight into the profoundly important history of miracles. Miraculous is a richly researched text of wondrous things that have taken place from ancient times to the present.
