Overview
Do we believe that God still does miracles? Do we expect him to move in miraculous ways in our day-in, day-out lives? Maybe we'd like to see miracles, but it's hard to see past our problems. All that is about to change, like water into wine.
"There are miracles all around us all the time," says Mark Batterson, "but you won't see them if you don't know how to look for them."
Now the bestselling author of The Circle Maker reveals the incredible power of the seven miraculous signs of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Batterson shows how they were not simply something Jesus did in the past, but something he wants to do now, in the present. He shares true stories of people today who are experiencing miracles in their lives. And he brings to light countless miracles, big and small, that we take for granted every day that point us toward the One who healed the sick, calmed the storm, and yes, even raised the dead.
But this is more than a book about miracles. It's a book about the only One who can perform them. Batterson cautions readers, "Don't just seek miracles. Seek Jesus. And if you seek Jesus, miracles will find you."
Nothing has changed since Jesus called Lazarus out of his tomb four days after his funeral. Our impossible situations still double as God's greatest opportunity to reveal his glory. No matter how big the problem is, God is bigger still. Anyone who longs to see God work in miraculous ways today will love Batterson's faith-building, life-giving message.

“Miracles are happening all around us all the time, but you won’t see them if you don’t know how to look for them,” writes Batterson (The Circle Maker), lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C., in his book that examines the seven miracles of Jesus as presented in the Gospel of John and also assures readers that miracles continue to happen every day. Whether turning water into wine, bringing the dead back to life, restoring sight to the blind, calming the waters during a storm, or multiplying fishes and loaves to feed a hungry crowd, Jesus demonstrated the power given him by God. God still reveals his power today through modern-day miracles, Batterson argues, offering numerous examples of such miracles. From the story of a pastor friend who escaped death by making it to a neighbor’s house without losing any blood after being stabbed repeatedly to the healing of a little boy with an aggressive malignant growth in his middle ear that disappeared minutes before surgeons planned to remove it, the author supplies evidence for his assertion that “it’s not over till God says it’s over.” People who seek assurance and hope that miracles can and do happen—or those who simply enjoy reading about miracles past and present—will find inspiration in this conversationally written study.
