Geisler shows how the laws of logic and science speak to the reasonableness of miracles. A dispassionate look at the facts and arguments demands that doubters question their own naturalistic assumptions. Geisler also describes “signs,” “wonders,” and “power,” contrasting what the Bible means by a miracle with bizarre stories of saints, faith healers, and occultists.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Miracles and the Modern Mind are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “miracle” or “science.”
