The word 'Miacle' comes from the Latin ‘mirari’, ‘to wonder at’. Both believers and non-believers will wonder at the religious miracles from around the world recounted by Niels Christian Hvidt in this book.

Through matter-of-fact description of both the inexplicable events themselves and the scientific examination of them, through interviews with the people involved and, not least, through a wealth of illustrations the reader is allowed a close look at incredible and, in any rate, inexplicable events: Madonna statues crying tears of blood, hosts which turn into human flesh, a housewife who receives prophecies, self-igniting candles in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and, closer to home, in Copenhagen, a Russian icon which suddenly starts secreting oil.

The fifteen chapters about modern-day miracles widen the mind of the reader and raise the question of how these phenomena may be fitted into our modern world picture. In a number of background articles Niels Christian Hvidt examines the historical and present-day role of miracles in theology and in science.
