Craig Keener on Miracles

"Not only the Majority World today but also the history of Christianity, including in the West, is replete with supernaturalist claims.  The modern Western prejudice against acknowledging or exploring miracle claims rests not on a total lack of evidence for such claims, even in Western history, but on an a priori insistence that they be screened from consideration.  Yet such claims belong not only to earlier history or to non-Western cultures; countless examples can be offered today, including in the West."1

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
