“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 Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of his unique personal involvement with God. An impeccable inquiry into the proposition that supernatural events can happen in this world, C.S. Lewis uses his remarkable logic to build a solid argument for accepting the existence of divine intervention.
Using his characteristic lucidity and wit, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics and deists on their own grounds and makes out an impressive case for the irrationality of their assumptions.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was born in Belfast. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, and was later Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, where he remained until his death. Lewis’s most distinguished and popular accomplishments include The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
“If I were ever to stray into the Christian camp, it would be because of Lewis’s arguments as expressed in books like Miracles.”
