Do miracles really happen? Can we know if the supernatural world exists?

“The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.” This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in His creation.

Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics, and deists on their own grounds. He makes an impressive case for the irrationality of their assumptions by positing: “Those who assume that miracles cannot happen are merely wasting their time by looking into the texts. We know in advance what results they will find for they have begun by begging the question.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “The erudite Miracles deftly develops the thesis of Christian beliefs and determinably counters nonbelievers. Whitfield’s authoritative delivery cushions the credence of miracles.”

    " My only regret with this book is that I can't stop and think well enough with an audio cd. Lewis does a fantastic job proving that miracles are exactly what we should expect of the God of the Bible, and that the precise miracles that Jesus performed fit perfectly with His character. Of course there's far more than that in this book. It's well worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/9/2014

    " DEEP STUFF "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Derrick | 2/4/2014

    " The book was alright but I doubt I will read it again. C.S. Lewis goes through and starts at the beginning arguing that miracles do exist. He starts out with the idea that there is nature and then a supernature or something that exists outside of nature itself. Then he explains how the supernature (God) can affect nature without knocking nature off balance but that all of the miracles of God occur in perfect harmony with how God has created nature to behave. Mr. Lewis ends the book with explaining the different miracles that occured in the Bible and how they fit into the grand scheme of miracles. It was a difficult book to read and I found myself unable to sit more than about an hour at a time and read it without taking some time as a break or to let my brain digest everything I had read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 2/2/2014

    " Loved the chapter on the Incarnation! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 1/25/2014

    " One of the things I really appreciate with C.S. is that he gives his reader the credit that they will be able to follow or comprehend his logic. Sometimes it takes me reading a passage a time or two and really thinking through it to be able to follow him, but I still appreciate that he treats his reader like they are competent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan Mccord | 1/25/2014

    " Good book, but some of the scientific stuff went over my head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/18/2014

    " This is a logical review of Christianity, how ever now very easy to read and understand! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 1/16/2014

    " I didn't like this book. I have loved everything I have read by C.S. Lewis, but this was boring and rambling. Maybe I will try it again...in a few years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Igor Putina | 1/11/2014

    " Philosophical discussion on spirituality, supernatural and God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mad Russian the Traveller | 12/31/2013

    " Re-reading after having first read this back in the early 1980's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathlyn | 12/9/2013

    " I loved this book. My favorite C.S. Lewis book is Surprised by Joy, but this is good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 11/28/2013

    " I allways like C.S. Lewis writing, and this book make me think. I like that in a book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 11/28/2013

    " A really good treatment of a difficult subject. Clears the air about how, if not what, to think about miracles. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin welter | 11/10/2013

    " Parts were really thought provoking and good enough for me to "almost" finish it. But more often it was a tedious game of the dog chasing his tale and being lead along for the ride. More of an attempt to explain just by word usage and the mere going through the motions of the steps of logic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Fearn | 8/27/2013

    " classic Lewis "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Bates | 6/28/2013

    " Powerful book, very hard to get into. This is not an easy read, but it is a good read. First exposure to the weaknesses of naturalism, and the reasoning behind a theistic worldview. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Hollingsworth | 1/7/2013

    " Christ's miracles are normal natural processes occurring in an instant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 9/17/2012

    " One of Lewis' best. Which says a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Van riper | 9/2/2012

    " Good but I had some difficulty reading it straight through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 7/3/2012

    " Not by any means my favourite Lewis book, I couldn't finish it but there are some seriously sound arguments within the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon Davis | 3/15/2012

    " This book is really good. It is a little bit tougher of a read, but definitely worth it if you have the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Savage | 12/3/2011

    " Tough to follow in places, but instructive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 6/20/2011

    " An intellectual exploration of the supernatural. Very insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff | 5/16/2011

    " Hard core. Some beautiful logic talking the talk of any academic philosopher or intellectual. Masterfully made points, doesn't mince words. Not a feel good preaching-to-the-choir sermon, but something you could take toe to toe with anybody. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lana | 4/26/2011

    " CS Lewis always blows me away and this book was no exception. It just kept getting better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 2/11/2011

    " This was at least the second time I read this argument for the acceptance of some miracles as written in the Bible. C. S. Lewis always makes me think about my faith and how it affects my life and I return to his books again and again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beka | 2/9/2011

    " Though I did enjoy this book, it was a lot more technical than his others, and was harder to understand. He makes some very good points, but also has incorrect ones. Very thought-provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 12/23/2010

    " Challenging and thought-provoking. Never a dull word. "
