4 Books to Read When You’re Hungry for Miracles

4 Books to Read When You're Hungry for Miracles - AmyLu-Riley.comMiracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts

by Craig S. Keener (Baker Academic, 2011)

This was very faith-building. I flipped directly past the scholarly chapters and went straight to the miracle accounts, which are very readable. It was hard to put down. Keener reports on miracles from all over the world, with careful notes about the perceived credibility of the eyewitnesses and availability of medical documentation. (Then I went back to the scholarly chapters!) Get ready for something new.

Miracle for Jen

by Linda Barrick (Tyndale House Publishers, 2012)

When Jen was 15, she sustained catastrophic brain injuries sustained in a car accident in 2006. Doctors did not expect Jen to live through the first night, but she did live and received a very unusual healing miracle. The way God chose to heal Jen—when he could have chosen any way—made me closely consider his choice. I found it to be a strong indicator of how much God wants to rescue all of his children. Jen’s story reminded me of the power of miracles to extend beyond the person to whom they are given—and that they seem to be inherently designed to work that way.

Anointed to Heal

by Randy Clark and Bill Johnson (Chosen Books, 2017)

Faith-building and eye opening, as I listened to this book in its original audio interview format, I realized something new: I am hungry for miracles because there are miracles. Today. In the country in which I live.

Eyewitness to Miracles

by Randy Clark (Thomas Nelson, 2018)

I appreciated the case this book makes for the scientific research and record-keeping of modern miracles that scholars have begun to undertake. The book also gives eyewitness accounts of many miracles, and makes practical suggestions for the reader.
