By Adam TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 8 2011
Format: Paperback
Miracles by C.S. Lewis is a very intellectual look at the phenomenon of miracles. In fact, a great deal of the book deals with how you define miracles, what your presuppositions and world views are (which enable or disable you from acknowledging miracles), and a few red herrings. Lewis writes in such a way that even if you don't acknowledge miracles, he begins by discussing why that might be and whether that is a valid place to start.

This is not a light read, but you will learn a great deal from the easy way in which Lewis writes. And while Lewis's writtings are a bit dated, and you won't catch some of his references, the message is timeless.

This is a well written apologetic for miracles.

By Mark Nenadov TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 28 2007
Format: Paperback
C.S. Lewis presents a great deal of solid philisophical material here. One suprise for me was that at a couple points, Lewis seems to come across as more presuppositional than evidential in his approach to apologetics. That is not to say that he is necessarily like that in all regards, but I did find some strong hints of it in this book.

I'm clearly not as big of a Lewis buff as some other people I've met. In fact, I have some serious reservations about some of what he believes. However, this particular book is the real deal and I highly recommend it to those who feel they are not getting sufficient answers elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
Miracles, while not a perfect book, is certainly an excellent one, in which C.S. Lewis is at his philosophical best. It's not an easy read, by any means, but grinding through it is worth the effort. Recently, another review (by Widger) has widely misconstrued Lewis' argument in the first few chapters, so I would like to use this space, to help "hinder the hindrances" to a very good book.
Widger makes three inadequate criticisms against Lewis' argument. The second and third basically amount to the same critique, so I'll group them together.
1.)Widger says, "First, although he is right that a logical ground for a belief is not the same kind of cause as 'non-rational causation' and although he is also right that a belief being physically caused would not mean that it was proved, it does not follow that having a physical cause would ipso facto prove falsehood."
2.)Widger claims Lewis is arguing to the supernatural through ignorance, and then elucidates some problems with arguing from ignorance.
1.) Lewis never says that having a physical cause proves falsehood ipso facto. He makes this clear by talking about human thought as the border of two frontiers. He says it can be physically accounted for in the brain, but that the brain itself can never give a fully adequate account of reasoning. Just because the water in a fishbowl always moves when the fish moves, doesn't mean the fish is the water. Or that all the movements of the water can be fully explained by the water itself.
2.) Lewis is not arguing from ignorance; he's arguing from reason. He's saying you could never give a complete account of reason through irrational causation. Saying you could would be like saying you could have a round triangle.

A wonderful explanation of the supernatural... perhaps best read after Mere Christianity... also, the C.S. Lewis encyclopedia is good as well, especially for the explanation of myth vs. falsehood... Lewis' views on this are very different from the average persons'.

I loved the intellectual craft of this book. It was metally and spiritually refreshing to read, though it took me a while. I strongly recommend it to anyone who loves reason.

Huh? That is the thought that clouded my reading of Lewis's Miracles more often than not. I readily admit that I am not the most steady reader of philosophy, so most of this book left me in the dust, coughing and confused. Nonetheless, reading Lewis unravel and re-knot the arguments for and against the supernatural enhancement of Nature (or Creation, depending on your view of the issue) was a treat. Before reading it though, a word advice, keep in mind Lewis's opening statement that this book is not meant to change minds, just put forth concepts and arguments. Those on either side of the debate fence will no doubt remain on whatever side they were at the book's beginning.

I'd have given the book three or four stars because I get so bored with the type of dialectical apologetics against Modernism that the first two thirds are full of (Even though Lewis is never really boring). But when he begins to speak about the Resurrection and the New Creation, God's Great Reversal, the book becomes outstanding. The escatological significance of what he says cannot be overstated. And when Lewis says it, he says it with beautiful eloquence that will break your heart. He begins a conversation that we must return to and continue.
The Anglican Bishop Tom (N.T.) Wright said this is the best he has ever seen anyone deal with the Resurrection. He also says, "Space, Time, and Resurrection" by Thomas Torrance is a close second.
