What Can Jesus' Miracles Teach Us Today?
It lies at the heart of our Christian faith—the profound but simple truth that the same power that can turn water into wine can also breathe life into a long-dead corpse.
These are the miracles of Jesus, evidence that he is the son of God. It is in the gospel accounts of his ministry that we discover his never-failing mastery over the forces of sickness and sin, nature and Satan, life and death.
The facts about each of the 35 recorded miracles of Jesus—complemented by Charles C. Ryrie's biblical research and personal insights—continue to carry a faith-strengthening message to the Lord's followers today.
Charles C. Ryrie (A.B., Harverford College; Th.D., Dallas Theological Seminary; Ph.D., University of Edinburgh; Litt.D., Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary) is the editor of the popular Ryrie Study Bible and author of many best-selling books including The Basis of the Premillennial Faith,The Miracles of Our Lord, and Biblical Theology of the New Testament.

This book is an up-market introduction to the 35 miracles attributed to our Lord. It is fast-moving and keeps the reader on his toes as he comes face to face with each graphically portrayed incident. The explanations are sounded and Biblical and genuinely draw the reader's attention to focus on Christ. Well outline, it would be a proverbial 'paradise' for preachers and bible-Class teachers - but, having said that all will profit from perusing its pages. Why not treat yourself to a copy and feel the strings of the Spirit within as you realize afresh that He is a God of Miracles!
