Overview

Many readers of the Bible assume that when Jesus did a miracle it was, fundamentally, to prove that He was God-Jesus was pulling out His "God Card." What is startling is that Jesus never made the case that this was the primary purpose of His miracles.

What if Jesus was intending to reveal something different, something more, something beyond merely proving His identity? Seeing as Jesus' miracles were such a significant part of His ministry, if we miss what His miracles do reveal, we may be missing out on great insights into the One who loves us and came to rescue us.

Like the restoration of a great Old Master's painting, Brian leads his readers to a fresh vision of what is conveyed in the Gospel accounts of Jesus' miracles. Uncovering what is there, in the text, we see the miracles in a reinvigorated, vibrant way. You will never read about the miracles in the same way . . . and you will catch a renewed and compelling glimpse of Jesus.


Endorsements for More Than His God Card:

Brian accurately and skillfully helps us to understand and appreciate the meaning of Jesus' miracles. It's profoundly encouraging to apply these truths to our lives. After reading this book, you'll never look at the miracles of Jesus the same.
