Real Life Real Miracles, by James L. Garlow and Keith Wall

A compilation of miraculous events, this book will prove to be a source of encouragement for anyone who is going through a difficult situation, particularly if similar to the ones described in the book.  It is an inspiring read that will remind us that God is continually acting in our lives, despite the obscure and difficult circumstances we have to face every day.

However, I must say that there is a lack of reference to the Bible.  As a result, a continuous emphasis on the supernatural is the main focus of the book.  If someone new to Christianity read this book, he/she won’t find any doctrine or fundamental instruction, and could be led to believe that a Christian life entails only the miraculous; even if this aspect of a spiritual, growing relationship with God should not be alien to a believer, it should never be the core of such relationship.

Having clarified that, I would recommend this book as a source of current examples of how God works in us all the time, even if we are not able to understand His ways.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers, in exchange for an honest review; this has not biased my opinion on the book, nor on the authors.
