/ -- In our culture, the word "miracle" has been misused, overused, and abused. The marketplace is crowded with miracle cures, miracle foods, and miracle gadgets. Some Christians loosely use the word miracle to indicate God's help, such as in a medical healing. So how do we identify a supernatural intervention? According to Herbert Lockyer: "A miracle has been defined as a work performed by a Divine Power for a divine purpose by means beyond the reach of mankind." By that measure, A Miracle Is a Miracle
by best-selling author Robert Strand, contains twenty-five honest-to-goodness miracles.
Robert was very particular about the stories he included in this book. They had to meet the following criteria: 1) Healings must have been immediate, rather than gradual. 2) The included miracles should be those that skeptics cannot claim were merely coincidence. 3) The sources should meet impeccable research standards. To the best of his ability, Robert has done a careful follow-up in checking each story. In many cases, he personally knows and can vouch for the integrity of each contributor. As far as he has been able to determine, all twenty-five accounts are authentic.
These stories are truly amazing. There's the prisoner in a Russian gulag who was instantaneously healed of a life-ending knife gash across his torso . . . the "impossible" story of a tramp who gave a financially strapped pastor a rusty tin can, which when opened, contained $10,000 in cash . . . or the young missionary who was confronted during a church service by townspeople who demanded that he raise a man from the dead after they had wheeled his body into the meeting!
Robert Strand has 40+ years of ministry under his belt. He is a respected pastor as well as author of over 60 books, which have combined sales of more than 8 million copies. Robert has been collecting amazing, true stories from believers around the world all his life, from which he draws much of his writing inspiration. A recent Gallup poll revealed that 83% of Americans still believe in miracles. Robert comments, "With all of that said, enjoy! Be challenged! Be encouraged! Be a believer! Love God! Love people! And make a difference!"
