Miracles | [C. S. Lewis]

Miracles

"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.

Publisher's Summary

"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." - from Miracles

    "Christianity for"

    This book requires you to leave children's Sunday School behind and have your mind stretched so you can start to experience an intelligent, mature, and insightful way of thinking about what Christianity is really about. As for agnostics and atheists they should spend their time critiquing this book instead of targetting Christian's who think like children. Lewis's use of language and metaphor, make his piercing logic very entertaining. The reader sounds like a bit of an arrogant Englishman but does a good job and as with all the good audiobooks the narrator drifts into the background as the ocean of ideas surges forth. Another under appreciated book by Lewis, the Problem of Pain, is an excellent companion to this. How I wish Richard Dawkin's (of The Selfish Gene) and his followers were arguing with CS Lewis and not the modern, superficial christian evangelicals. All concerned would be so much better off!

    "One of the best I've ever read"

    This book is not intended for those who want easy, light hearted, non-demanding reading or listening. It requires you to engage fully and intelligently, to pause, contemplate and study. But in the end it is one of the finest analysis of the differences between the worldview which embraces nature as the totality of existence, naturalism, and one which perceives and grasps a worldview with a force beyond nature, labeled by Lewis as super-naturalism.

    His arguments are compelling as they stem from an intellectual depth of critical reasoning at which most of us can only marvel.

    "A book to think about"

    As a retired Physicist who taught at a University, and worked for the Government, I am skeptical about miracles. This book does not directly attempt to assert that miracles happened, but rather examines the rational basis for examining the evidence for and against them. C.S. Lewis had philosophical training as part of his background, as well as a deep understanding of logic. He applies the techniques of each to the question of whether miracles can exist, and how to approach the problem. If you read this book without preconceptions, either for or against the central thesis, you come out with a lot of material to think about. If you are skeptical about miracles, this is a good book to read to at least open up your mind. If you already believe in miracles, then this would be worth reading to introduce some skeptical thoughts into your mind to cause you to think, and perhaps reinforce your beliefs after the thought process.

    "Thought provoking"

    This book is one of the most influential books that I have read. I listened to this one many times without tiring of the message. This book has depth.

    "Hard to follow"

    I feel the information and the observations back and forth were enjoyable but it was hard to follow the logic at times. I do not recommend th audio however the book it's self may be more enjoyable when you have time to absorb the arguments.

    "An great look at evidence for the supernatural"
    If you’ve listened to books by C. S. Lewis before, how does this one compare?

    This I think should be a companion to Mere Christianity. Its good and has difficult concepts to consider which I find enjoyable.

    "A difficult "listen" compared to other CS Books"
    Any additional comments?

    I think CS Lewis gets so deep sometimes that he is hard to follow. I just had a hard time following this one, not saying it is a bad book, just difficult.

    "Excellent"

    As a longtime fan of C.S. Lewis, I found this book both challenging and rewarding. Because I find the subject really absorbing, I wasn't able to use this book for just zoning out. In fact I debated whether I wanted to drive while listening. But it was well, well worth the listen, and I plan to hear it again soon.
