In this book Wakefield explores miracles of all sorts within all religious persuasions. The book is extremely well-written. While reading the first chapter I was on the point of giving up the book since I found it too cerebral, but it became more interesting for me as we really got into the miracles.

It turned out that though miracles of physical health are few and far between, many who visit Lourdes return transformed in faith and outlook.

In this book Wakefield explores miracles of all sorts within all religious persuasions. The book is extremely well-written.

While reading the first chapter I was on the point of giving up the book since I found it too cerebral, but it became more interesting for me as we really got into the miracles.

The chapter about Lourdes is perhaps the most memorable for me. It turned out that though miracles of physical health are few and far between, many who visit Lourdes return transformed in faith and outlook.

But there was a tale of an outstanding miracle at Knock, "the Irish Lourdes", where a lady suffering from MS who had been paralyzed from the waist down for three years experienced a wondrous instant miracle, rose from her stretcher and walked. The muscles in her legs had been wasted, but she was healed, and remained so. In the church she had been placed under a statue of our Lady of Knock, and had prayed to her not for a cure, since she knew she was going to die, but for her children, when she had heard a "whispering" voice telling her to get up.

The book contains a chapter about miracles of healing, one on miracles of recovery from alcoholism and addiction in general, and chapters on miracles of love, creating, encounter, presence and, finally, everyday miracles.

This is an absolutely inspiring, spiritual book, which will cleanse your soul (if you read it). I recommend it strongly, despite my initial reservations.

This is one of the few books I've encountered that I wanted to read or listen to as soon as I had finished. The stories show the miracles that are common and uncommon in lives of all types of people. It felt like a collection of stories from family members about their lives and part of my heritage. Our humanity connects us with more than flesh and blood. We are spiritually connected in a way that this book reveals through the sharing of a special part of peoples' lives. I'm looking forward to making my own list of miracles and seeing how long it will be.
A must read for all who wish to be inspired about the positiveness of life. We need to hear more about the good in the world and this book does that very well.
