Christian miracles

There is also evidence concerning Christian miracles from more recent times. Well-documented miracle accounts can be found in the following biography of the Lutheran pastor and theologian Johann Christoph Blumhardt:

Dieter Ising, Johann Christoph Blumhardt: Life and Work: A New Biography, Translated by Monty Ledford, Eugene 2009.

In the following excerpt from another biography of Blumhardt, written by his friend Friedrich Zündel (1827-1891), we find a description of the miraculous events surrounding Blumhardt’s work:;id=2;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Echristiancadre%2Eorg%2F


  1. I read through most of the book - I just find it so hard not to bring every bit of skepticism to bear on the claims of the miraculous it presents. Maybe it's the present materialist zeitgeist, maybe it's the false claims that flow like water from folks like Todd Bentley and Benny Hinn, but there you go. What's your position on this kind of thing, Mr. Hays?

  2. I don't see that the existence of charlatans casts doubt on the existence of genuine miracles in the modern world.
