It is well worth the read. The examples he used, he is right, are not miracles. This book is good for those who are rather sceptical about the miracles that have been propounded in history.

The reports and witnesses to miracles only started to balloon during the time of St Augustine onwards and positively exploded during the medieval age. One of his most interesting observations is the fact that in only very few cases does a saint actually claim to perform miracles or that reports and witnesses of miracles occurred while a saint was still living.
Warfield’s classic book primarily provides an overview through history historical evidence of what he sees as various periods of the non-operation, and thus cessation, of certain spiritual gifts. He moves on to discuss the many miracles in Catholicism, stigmata, Virgin’s milk, relics, etc, paying miraclee attention to the details of their reports, the witnesses, etc, peppering his examination with dry humour and sly comments.

Ray Cannata rated it really liked it Apr 05, However, Warfield notes that there are some very interesting and disturbing parallels between the miracles reported by the patristic fathers like St Augustine and some of the pagan miracle tales which has already existed before, which doubtlessly points to a convenient co-opting of pagan miracle stories by Christians as the Christian faith became much more widespread which was somewhat uncritically recorded down by St Augustine.

A very thorough argument for the cessationist position. One person found this helpful. Although I disagree with the premise of the book entirely, he makes a great argument for cessationism in the modern church. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants.
