This book looks at miracles with the same shrewd wisdom Imbach displayed in his earlier books -- And He Taught Them With Pictures and Three Faces of Jesus. What do Jesus' miracles mean to us today? Josef Imbach takes today's skeptical reader back and traces the roots of New Testament stories, back centuries to the world of clay pots and stone tablets. He shows us the role miracles played in the ancient world and looks carefully at the stories as they are told by the Evangelists. It becomes clear that these manifestations aimed not only to free man from guilt and evil but also to liberate him to accept himself and find freedom, faith, joy and life. Imbach opens the world of the Bible in a masterly way. His vivid accounts of what to skeptics are nothing but magical tricks for gullible believers demonstrate that these miracles are indeed relevant to the daily questions and searchings of each one of us. Josef Imbach was born in Switzerland in 1945 and studied philosophy and theology in Rome. After some years of teaching theology in Lucerne he was asked to join the faculty of St. Bonaventure Pontifical University in Rome where since 1975 he has been professor of fundamental theology.
