Overview

Some Christians claim to be able to heal the sick and even raise the dead. Some people applaud this, while others are skeptical. Are these healers using the power of God? Are they faking? Or is their power from Satan? And what about nonbelievers who also claim to perform wonders? Are they tricksters or agents of the occult? Can we believe their claims about past lives, seeing the future, UFO encounters, and spirit channeling?

Norman L. Geisler takes a sane and solidly biblical look at miraculous healings and other amazing phenomena today. With penetrating insight, he constructs guidelines for judging whether any so-called miracle is truly from God or from the realm of the demonic. Signs and Wonders also includes material on speaking in tongues and on the use of objects in faith healing. In addition, Geisler looks carefully at the clever trickery that charlatans use to dupe and swindle people. He shows that what often passes as supernatural can be explained as merely unusual.

Here is a book for anyone who wonders about the power and the sincerity of those who claim to be wonder-workers.

Top Highlights

“The wonders that continue to elude scientific explanation are called anomalies. An anomaly is an odd event that seems to deviate from the normal way that nature operates. It is not necessarily a miracle, only a deviation from the normal.” (Page 12)

“The supernatural acts of God in the Bible were and are always successful” (Page 29)

“Magic is divided into three levels: the puzzler that fools only the eye; the fooler where both eye and mind are deceived; and the baffler where the mind is fooled but not the eye (Korem 1981, 19).” (Page 65)

“There are seven miracles Jesus performed that could not have required faith by the recipient. This is certainly true of the three persons Jesus raised from the dead.” (Page 85)

“On the other hand, psychological healings require faith on the part of the recipient.” (Page 89)
