Overview

One of Corner's (Charles U., Czech Republic) goals is to challenge the view that the 21st century is less credulous than the first, or less likely to believe in miracles, not to mention less likely to be unkind to someone like Jesus of Nazareth. Examining in turn philosophical, historical, and non-Christian and contemporary perspectives of miracles, he explore such topics as what a miracle is, Hume, acts of God, modern science, the problem of evil, miracles after Jesus, miracles after the Reformation, the miracle of resurrection, the nature of God, non-Christian religions, and the modern world.
