Lots of extraordinary stuff happens in the Bible. People walk on water. People touch handkerchiefs and are healed. People disappear into the sky. Did these really happen? What was their purpose? And do miracles happen today? How do we respond if someone says they've seen a miracle happen? Should we hold healing services? What can I say to a child about praying for healing? How should we react when prayers for healing aren't answered? In this warm and accessible book, Tim Chester looks at the Bible's view of the existence and purpose of miracles and gives a careful and balanced view on whether healings and other miraculous things happen today. It will help Christians to explore these questions and others regarding miracles, signs and wonders, and know how to pray. Includes additional questions on: * Why did Jesus tell people not to tell others about his miracles? * How should I respond when I hear a claim that a miracle has happened? * Should we hold healing services? * What can I say to a child about praying for healing? Questions Christians Ask are short, readable books which clearly explain how the Bible answers the tough questions Christians are asking.
