Craig S. Keener: Miracles, reviewed by Woodrow Walton

Keener’s two volumes are replete with personal reports of miracles occurring.

Miracles is a massive work yet it is easy to read because of its narrative flow. He lets the reports speak for themselves. You will not find psychosomatic explanations of the healings that are attested to.

Keener’s two volume work is also formidable. Critics face a daunting task if they wish to take issue with the reliability of the reports. They can do so only by questioning the integrity of all of the testimonies Keener has gathered. It is the overwhelming number of reports collected and their insistence that the miraculous has occurred that has made Miracles the center of attention in both print and public discussion. Both The Pentecostal Evangel of the Assemblies of God and Christianity Today have carried full articles on Keener and the presentation he makes in Miracles for the credibility of miracles in the Bible and of the miracles testified to by people around the world.

Miracles is worth the time it takes to read, whether the reader be a preacher, evangelist, lay worker, or even a skeptic.
