About the Authors
  • The miracle stories of the founders and saints of the major world religions have much in common. Written by international experts, this Companion provides an authoritative and comparative study of miracles in not only Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity and Judaism, but also, indigenous religions. The authors promote a discussion of the problems of miracles in our largely secular culture, and of the value of miracles in religious belief. The miracles of Jesus are also contextualized through chapters on the Hebrew Bible, classical culture to the Romans, Second Temple and early rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity. This book provides students with a scholarly introduction to miracles, which also covers philosophical, medical and historical issues.

    • Includes discussions covering the miracle in the world's major religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and Judaism
    • Presents miracle traditions found in the Hebrew Bible, classical culture, Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity
    • Perspective of philosophers and medical profession are included to consider the ongoing issues related to miracle, including their possibility and meaning
