Our Eyes Can Be Opened

Ronald J Allen

$46.80

Paperback
:Focuses on the miracle stories in the New Testament as stories, rather than as simply miraculous events. Evaluates the four major ways in which the miracle stories have been interpreted in the modern period, then builds on recent studies of Ernst Cassirer and Susanne K. Langer which see stories as creating a 'world' into which the listener enters via the imagination. Six miracle stories are discussed in detail: stilling of the storm, Gerasene demoniac, Jairus' daughter, woman with the issue of blood, feeding of the five thousand, and blind Bartimaeus.
