There are many books that focuses on the parables of Jesus, but I don’t quite recall any books that focuses on the miracles of Jesus. And that is why this book is a breathe of fresh air for christians. It reminds us about on one aspect of Jesus that we may often overlook.
First, Jared Wilson highlights to the readers how this generation do not really believe in miracles anymore. We are “too smart” for any miracles. Thereafter he comes to define the meaning of the word miracle, he narrows it down to it being supernatural, and it being a preview of what the world will be. In addition, the aim of miracles is always to glorify Jesus. With that. Wilson brings the readers through 9 different miracles.
In each of the miracles, Wilson brings out the context of the miracles, explains the meaning and also brings out application to the readers. Many a times, Wilson challenges the readers with the application of the text, making this book not only good for growing in understanding, but also in applying the text.
I found the explanation of miracles being a preview of what heaven to be very attractive, although this was the first time I had read about this. I also found this book very readable. I think the main audience of the book would lay christians who wants to grow in their knowledge of the miracles of Jesus, or just want a good dose of bible teaching in general. I have found these teachings to be helpful and applicable, and would recommend you to read it too.
