Part of the debate over God's existence centers on questions about the possibility and "provability" of miracles. In this ground-breaking work, Dr. C. John Collins provides a thorough exegetical foundation for discussing God's action in the world within the framework of biblical Christian theology. He begins by presenting and contrasting the options within traditional Christian theism. Collins then explores the biblical passages that support a classically theistic foundation and relates these results to the corresponding philosophical, theological, scientific, and apologetic questions that it raises.

By bringing together what the Bible teaches about miracles; "nature," "cause," and special divine action, Collins effectively takes on the God-of-the-gaps position and answers with a persuasive "yes" the crucial question of whether it is intellectually responsible to embrace the biblical view of God's action in the world

What Christian scholars are saying about The God of Miracles:

In showing that the Bible affirms a meaningful distinction between natural processes and God's special discreet or miraculous action, and that God does act to affect material conditions and events within a natural order that He otherwise sustains and upholds, Collins answers an important theological objection to the legitimacy of the contemporary theory of intelligent design. -Stephen C. Meyer, Ph.D., Director, Center for the Renewal of Science and Culture, Discovery Institute

This is a first-rate, painstaking study of the theological landscape relevant to God's action in the world. From now on, anyone wishing to talk about divine action in a theologically responsible way will have to make reference to the theses and arguments of this book. -J. P. Moreland, Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

Collins offers one of the most comprehensive and insightful sets of replies to those who dispute the biblical claim that God miraculously acts to affect conditions and events in His creation. This is for anyone wanting to evaluate the strength of the evidence for the God of the Bible. -Hugh Ross, President, Reasons to Believe

Collins' integration of theological and scientific insights gives Christians a remarkable tool for answering scientific rationalism and theological variance from the Bible's proclamation of a God who is powerful and present. This is not a book for the intellectually faint-of-heart; but if our culture is reading Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, and Stephen J. Gould, Christians need to read Collins. -Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

This unfailingly biblical and orthodox treatment of miracles will help believers express God's power and goodness to a world deeply confused over these issues. -Paul R. House, Professor of Biblical Studies, Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry
