The Bible is full of miracles. Yet how do we make sense of them today? And where might we see miracles in our own lives?
In this installment of the Hansen Lectureship series, historian and theologian Timothy Larsen considers the legacy of George MacDonald, the Victorian Scottish author, and minister who is best known for his pioneering fantasy literature, which influenced authors such as C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, G. K. Chesterton, and Madeleine L’Engle.
Larsen explores how, throughout his life and writings, MacDonald sought to counteract skepticism, unbelief, naturalism, and materialism and to herald instead the reality of the miraculous, the supernatural, the wondrous, and the realm of the spirit.
The Hansen Lectureship series offers accessible and insightful reflections by Wheaton College faculty members on the transformative work of the Wade Center authors.
The Miracles You Need for the Problems You Face
Healing the blind. Walking on water. Calming the storm. Feeding thousands with a few loaves and fish. Every miracle Jesus performed was for a purpose. There was provision for that specific moment in time. But what if each miracle was also embedded with the promise of future provision…for you?
In Find Your Miracle, New York Times best-selling authors Kerry and Chris Shook take a fresh look at nine of Jesus’s most incredible times of healing and supernatural intervention. The Shooks unpack these moments in modern language to usher you into the pain, desperation, breakthrough, and miracle of each encounter. Plus they reveal a “miracle map” that connects that moment long ago to our needs today for revelation, transformation, and restoration.
Discover the Miracle You’ve Been Looking For
Find Your Miracle is an exploration of nine miracles of Jesus, each filled with meaning, insight, and discovery for all who desperately need a miracle of their own.
Weaving together the biblical narrative with contemporary real-life application, Kerry and Chris Shook arrange these New Testament miracles under four overarching descriptions of Jesus the Miracle Worker: the Healer, the Provider, the Storm Chaser, and the Life-Giver.
Rather than running from our overwhelming situations, the Shooks encourages us to remain steady, fully trusting that Jesus stands ready to guide us to the miracle we most need and possibly least expect.

In the classic Miracles, C.S. Lewis, the most important Christian writer of the 20th century, argues that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.
“Overflows with faith and an admirable message of redemption.”—Publishers Weekly
“A story our weary world desperately needs . . . An intense and personal exploration of one woman’s journey of faith and the struggle to follow God’s leading in this modern world of ours.”
Rachel L. Miller, co-author of the bestselling Windy Gap Wishes series
“I trusted you, and someday, you may know just how much you hold in your hands.”
Linda Jensen leads a relatively quiet life in Westchester County, New York, as the owner of a highly-acclaimed garden. Inherited from her parents, the garden is her pride and joy. What is not so joyful is finding a strange man sprawled near her delphiniums! The mysterious man is sick, unable to do anything more than drink water—and beg for secrecy. Ignoring all alarm bells, Linda sees to his needs, but her caring act takes on unexpected significance, an unpresentable glory.
Seeds of trust, and perhaps love, are planted in Linda’s garden haven. But as secrets are revealed and scandal hits the headlines, the act of caring for this man threatens to tarnish both of their reputations.
Like weeds in Linda’s garden, circumstances threaten to choke out their fledgling relationship, and small moments prove to be the biggest influencers—on a national scale.
“An Unpresentable Glory is a spiritual pilgrimage, a fairy tale, and a mystery all in one, but most of all it is a story about the unexpected miracles that come when you give of yourself for someone else. Eleanor Gustafson writes with humor and heart.”
Sara Goff, author of I Always Cry at Weddings
“Gustafson’s literary treatment of a theme of redemption and restoration is set in a literal garden of delights. It is both a parable and a provocative contemporary story, crafted by a writer who is skilled, precise, and imaginative in her use of words.”
Latayne C. Scott, award-winning author of A Conspiracy of Breath and Latter-day Cipher
“What an awesome and lyrical tale! Unexpected love and new life after loss, the power of forgiveness and sacrifice—Eleanor Gustafson’s beautiful new story will have you pondering the
nature of God’s love and service long after you close the book.”
Amy Deardon, author of A Lever Long Enough
“Ms. Gustafson keeps the reader moving at a steady clip with deeply drawn characters and situations rich in detail, bursting with heart and life. The book is a near tour de force, and should add a well-deserved feather to this author’s cap! Highly recommended.”
Linore Rose Burkard, author of historical romance and YA suspense
“An Unpresentable Glory is an unusual and compelling story. I quickly became engrossed in the storylines following the lives of the two main characters. Not only did I wonder—and sometimes fret—about what would happen to them next, I couldn’t keep from guessing how—or whether—things would ever work out right. To my delight, not only was the ending extremely satisfying, it was filled with surprises galore.
“Ellie Gustafson handles the Christian elements lovingly, biblically, and realistically. And the strong presence of Native American and Latino characters and the extremely knowledgeable references to flowers and gardening help to make An Unpresentable Glory a potentially award-winning novel.”
Roger E. Bruner, author of Rosa No-Name, three quirky romantic novels, and the young adult Altered Hearts series
The #1 bestselling author of Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther explores miracles in an inspiring response to the “New Atheists”
Not since C. S. Lewis in 1947 has an author of Eric Metaxas’s stature undertaken a major exploration of the phenomenon of miracles. In this groundbreaking work, Metaxas examines the compatibility between faith and science and provides well-documented anecdotal evidence of actual miracles. With compelling—sometimes electrifying—evidence that there is something real to be reckoned with, Metaxas offers a timely, civil, and thoughtful answer to recent books by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris. Already a New York Times bestseller, Miracles will be welcomed by both believers and skeptics—who will find their minds opening to the possibilities.
