There has been some interesting discussion here on miracles over the years, and I thought of you guys listening to this CT podcast yesterday. The title is kind of click-baity because the episode really doesn’t go into the whole “wake up Olive” story at all. But I guess Strobel just spent two years investigating some contemporary miracles and wrote a book, probably less academic than Craig Keener’s.
One story that got discussed in the episode was of MS patient Barbara Snyder, who evidently got up from a hospice deathbed totally healed. Interesting stuff.
The episode touched on a lot of themes that have been discussed here; the embarrassment some scientifically-minded Christians seem to feel over the miracle stories in the Bible, people who deny that miracles happen today, the huge number of reported and verified miracles in countries where the gospel is advancing in new places. Anyway, I thought it was worth a listen for anyone who likes the topic. I have so many books on my “to read” list, I probably won’t ever get to The Case for Miracles, but maybe some of you will.
