About-

The Gospel Miracles examines the thirty-five miracles performed by Jesus, as reported in the four Gospels. The objectives are firstly to try and determine what really happened at the time they were enacted and, secondly, to see if it is possible to explain them. This exercise is neither an attempt to deny miracles, nor to blindly accept the accounts as inerrant, but it is an unbiased attempt to arrive at the truth. The findings conclude that sometimes there are possible naturalistic or simple alternative explanations to a supernatural one. However, this does not discount the possibility that Jesus employed natural means at the right time for the right reasons. The Gospel Miracles concludes with a summary of some more modern reports of miraculous events.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Taking each of the thirty-five mighty works recorded in the canonical gospels, whether healings or so-called nature miracles, he subjects each to a rigorous examination to establish the reliability and accuracy of the accounts, leading to a verdict as to whether on balance the accounts should be taken at face value or can be judged as having a naturalistic or symbolic explanation. His knowledge of New Testament Greek and of medicine, as well as his acquaintance with the views of expert biblical commentators up to the present day, are impressive. His honesty and clarity are highly commendable."
--Albert Jewell, visiting research fellow, Glyndŵr University, Wrexham, UK

"Michael J. Lowis provides a wonderfully eloquent account of the gospel miracles. He takes a 'supported philosophical-deductive approach' in grappling with faith-based and rational or logical explanations. Whether using faith, science, medicine, or law to prove these reportings, this precious book allows the reader to form their own conclusions. It is a timely call to attention in the growing quest of what actually constitutes evidence."
--Ross Prior, Associate Professor, The University of Northampton, Northampton, UK
