KIRKUS REVIEW

A doctor takes a rational look at miracles and finds them both intriguing and plausible. He begins with the miracles of the Bible--healings, the resurrection--and proceeding by way of various medieval and modern miracle manifestations--stigmata, levitation, communication with birds and animals--arrives at the seemingly phenomenal powers of Mary Baker Eddy, Rasputin, famous nineteenth century mediums, Eastern mystics, and finally contemporary subjects of extra sensory perception and telepathy. Writing both as a medical doctor and psychoanalyst, the force of the miracle as Dr. Williams sees it is the extreme interaction between the physical and mental, an extraordinary dispensation of concentrated energy. A book for those who would test their faith, revise it, or simply find a rational justification for believing in miracles.
