Find Your Miracle: How the Miracles of Jesus Can Change Your Life Today

Kerry and Chris Shook. Waterbrook, $21.99 (240p) ISBN 978-1-60142-723-6
The Shooks (One Month to Live), founders of Woodlands Church in the Woodlands, Tex., open their primer on the topic of miracles with a surprising statistic: 79% of Americans, including 78% of millennials, believe that miracles happen today. The authors believe there are five main principles of miracles: God starts with the miracle you need most; the miracle leads you to a deeper relationship with God; God works the miracle out in his own time; God’s miracles always glorify him and point people to Christ; and folks have to position themselves to receive the miracle. Readers will study the miracles that Jesus performed as the Shooks detail what those miracles should mean to modern-day believers. The Shooks specifically look at Jesus in the roles of healer, provider, storm chaser, and life giver. Each chapter is replete with personal anecdotes plucked from the authors’ lives, and readers will find pertinent Bible passages at the close of each chapter as well discussion questions at the end of the full text. The subject of miracles is a subjective one, but the Shooks throw caution to the wind in creating their own rubric for miracles, and believers will surely contemplate it long after finishing the book.
