Do miracles really occur? Is it even possible to know if the supernatural realm exists? In the 1700s, Scottish philosopher David Hume argued that miracles are a violation of a law of nature and such extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Since then, philosophers have attempted to demonstrate either the truth or inconsistency of this claim. In his time, C. S. Lewis argued a positive case for the supernatural.
"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."
Lewis builds his case from this core idea, demonstrating that Christians must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in creation. Using his usual calm and rational tone, Lewis challenged the naturalists and cynics of his time. Join C. S. Lewis as he teaches that miracles truly do occur in everyday life.
While this work challenges the skeptics in the time of C. S. Lewis, it is also pertinent to today. There are a growing number of skeptics hanging on the words of Bart Ehrman who are willing to dismiss miracles.
