9781470812362: Miracles

[Read by Simon Vance -aka- Robert Whitfield]

''The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.''

This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C.S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in His creation.

Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics and deists on their own grounds and makes out an impressive case for the irrationality of their assumptions by positing: ''Those who assume that miracles cannot happen are merely wasting their time by looking into the texts: we know in advance what results they will find for they have begun by begging the question.''

About the Author:

C. S. LEWIS (1898-1963), born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim and continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.

Review:

''...a brilliant book, abounding in lucid exposition and illuminating metaphor.'' --Observer

''This is Dr Lewis's most substantial and persuasive essay in Christian apologetics, and it is all the more impressive because it is the work of a poet as well as a philosopher.'' --Church Times

''[A] brilliant book, abounding in lucid exposition and illuminating metaphor.'' --Observer

''The erudite Miracles deftly develops the thesis of Christian beliefs and determinedly counters nonbelievers. (Audiobook narrator) Whitfield's (-aka- Vance's) authoritative delivery cushions the credence of miracles.'' --Booklist
