Walking on water. Multiplying the fish and the loaves. Raising Lazarus from the dead. The miracles of Jesus may be well known, but they're often misunderstood. In The Wonder-Working God, pastor Jared Wilson wants to help us see that there's more than meets the eye when it comes to the miraculous events recorded in the Gospels.
From the humble wonder of the incarnation to the blinding glory of the transfiguration, this book shows how Jesus's miracles reveal his divinity, authority, and ultimate mission: restoring us and this world to a right relationship with God.

The Journey, St. Louis, Missouri
Could it be that Jesus's miracles were not the paranormal, but actually the true normal breaking into our world of paranormal sin corruption? Wilson gets to the biblical heart of why Jesus performed miracles - these harbingers of God's mission to set right all that has gone so terribly wrong. Along the way, Wilson helps us hear what Jesus has to say to enlightened postmoderns, skeptics demanding apologetic proofs, and the paranormally fascinated. A soul-refreshing, gospel-drenched read.

Jesus walked on water and healed the sick. He turned water into wine and raised men from the dead. How often we skim over these familiar stories, but as Jared Wilson writes, 'Miraculous events in the Bible are God putting an exclamation point where he normally puts a period.' The Wonder-Working God teaches us that these miracles aren't meant only to amaze us, they are to point us to Jesus Christ himself. I'm convinced I will never read about Jesus's life the same way again. Read it and think deeply about it as you glimpse the glory of Jesus - our Savior.
Jared Wilson brings his characteristic wit and careful exegesis to the often-misunderstood passages on God's miracles in a fresh and insightful way. The Wonder-Working God is a timely and necessary work for the church if we are going to better understand the workings of our great God in the present age.

Finally, a treatment of Jesus's miracles that presents them more as a 'preview of coming attractions' and less as God's attempt to convince skeptics of his existence - as though God has ever 'attempted' to do anything. As Jared shows us, Jesus's miracles are more normal than we realize - an indicator of the way things used to be, before sin and death invaded Gods story, and a precursor of the way things will be one day, when Jesus returns to finish making all things new.
West End Community Church, Nashville, Tennessee
Into a world where naturalism is the prevailing philosophy, Jared Wilson casts a fresh vision for the wonder-working power of the God-man, Jesus of Nazareth. This biblically engaging, Christ-exalting, and never-boring book deserves your close and attentive reading.
