Living in the 21st century, we’ve heard about the overwhelming successes of science in recent decades. Mankind has travelled to the moon. Dolly the sheep has been cloned. The human genome has also been sequenced. Can we still believe the miracles of the Bible in such enlightened times? Can we believe in the virgin birth, resurrection of the dead, miracles of healing or in physical miracles like the instant calming of the storm on the Lake of Galilee? What about the sun standing still for a whole day? Is this miracle still reasonable for us today? Author and scientist Werner Gitt deals with such questions in the first part of this book.
In the second part, the author relates certain things which he has personally witnessed, and which appeared to be miraculous to him, in his encounters with people from all over the world. Some of these involved the circumstances of their conversions to God. He calls these personally experienced happenings ‘marvels’, as distinct from the biblical miracles.
One of the hallmarks of the encounters with Jesus described in the Bible is their authenticity, which includes the way thereports mention exactly where, when and on which occasion the miracles occurred. The author similarly authenticates most of his own experiences in this part, which is headed by a personal account of his formative childhood experiences.
In the third part, people whom the author has met during his conference trips all over the world relate personal experiences. All twelve people, from five continents, have something special to tell, and despite many differences, they all have something in common: they all tell of how God wonderfully intervened in their lives, bringing about a fundamental change in their thinking and living.
Just as each oak leaf is distinct from any other, and the countless stars and snowflakes are all individually unique, every human being has his/her own personal and unique life story.
