20 Answers: Miracles
More to the World than Meets the Eye
What are miracles, and why does God work them?
How can I believe in miracles if I have never experienced one?
Aren’t miracles just something pre-scientific people made up to explain what they couldn’t understand?
How can we discern whether a phenomenon is truly a miracle and not a hallucination, a hoax, or the work of a demon?
In this booklet you’ll find smart, solid answers to these questions and many more. The rare and wonderful supernatural events we call miracles are a gift from God, testifying to a skeptical world of his existence and his power. 20 Answers: Miracles unpacks the nature of miracles, their appearances in Scripture and history, how the Church evaluates them, and ways to answer doubters who say they’re mere superstition. Most of all, it shows that miracles are never an end in themselves, but instead are meant to lead us to greater faith in, and gratitude for, God’s providence.
The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.
