Miraculous: A Fascinating History of Signs, Wonders, and Miracles by Kevin Belmonte @ThomasNelson

Weighing in at over 300 pages, I must admit that Belmonte’s text is weighty. Don’t be afraid though, as historically-driven as this book is it is far from those textbooks you remember from high school. Rather, this book is devotional in nature. It shows how God has never given up on His people and how God has continually refining us believers since the creation of our world (see the first few chapters). He traces that same theme throughout history, through the early church fathers, the Reformation, even early presidents of the United States and so forth.

God isn’t done with us, not at all. As long as we wait on the return of Christ, God will continue to give us gradual nudges toward heaven, allowing to keep our eyes and hearts on eternity and truth.

Back Cover Reads:

“For thousands of years, the hope of heaven has called to people through miracles. When we stop to consider their stories, God’s voice calls to us as well.”

In our age of constant innovation, technological achievement, and the sad tendency to see ourselves as the captains of our fate, we may be tempted to make little time for miracles, or give little credence to them. But to live our lives without a sense of the miraculous is to live impoverished lives. Our word for miracle comes from the latin word mirari, “to wonder.” And well might we wonder when we consider the nature of miracles and their purpose.

It is here that a grand conversation beckons. God has been our help in ages past. He is our hope for years to come. to learn of holy events and people — supremely, to look upon the Savior — is to see the power of God, and how He has always sought to draw us to Himself. He is our eternal home. Miracles point the way there.

In these pages are scenes and lives touched by eternity, settings of almighty declaration, moments marked by deliverance, by mercy, or visionary unfoldings of God’s divine intent.

Kevin Belmonte provides learned insight into the profoundly important history of miracles. Miraculous is a richly researched text of wondrous things that have taken place from ancient times to the present.
