Most modern prejudice against biblical miracle reports depends on David Hume’s argument that uniform human experience precludes miracles. Yet current research shows that human experience is far from uniform. In fact, hundreds of millions of people today claim to have experienced miracles.

Respected New Testament scholar Craig Keener argues that it is time to rethink Hume’s argument in light of the contemporary evidence available to us. This wide-ranging and meticulously researched two-volume study presents the most thorough current defense of the credibility of the miracle reports in the Gospels and Acts. Drawing on claims from a range of global cultures and taking a multidisciplinary approach to the topic, Keener suggests that many miracle accounts throughout history and from contemporary times are best explained as genuine divine acts, lending credence to the biblical miracle reports.

I've only just recently begun using Keener's "Miracles," but I purchased it just in time to prepare a teaching on the early history of supernatural healing and demonic exorcism. What I can say is that this 2-volume work is packed full of information. I was impressed to see Keener's copious citations throughout the work, as I jumped here and there to prepare my teaching.

Though I can't give a full or thorough review yet, I can generally suggest that this is an information-packed resource on the subject of miracles--not only from within the Bible, but from numerous cultures, geographies, and times. In that way, it was a huge blessing. I only deduct one star because it seems awful expensive to me for a 2-volume work.
