This paper reviews and analyzes C. S. Lewis' book, "Miracles". The paper contends that, although highly readable for a text of its kind, "Miracles" is not an easy or facile read. Rather, it poses many questions that are difficult to reason through even when following Lewis' reasoning process. The paper also maintains that, because this book is based on unfinished research and because it lays the pathway for following historical proofs rather than arguing them, it does not always present any clear conclusions.

From the Paper:

"C. S. Lewis was a prolific Christian writer. He is perhaps best known for his series of books included in "The Chronicles of Narnia". His reach extends far beyond that of those books, however. The book "Miracles" is a good demonstration of why his work is so popular, even many years after his death. Although the book is a deep discussion of many philosophical ideas, it remains highly readable for someone who enjoys such topics. Lewis does not use what has now become the traditional warm and fuzzy "feel good" method of discussion that so many books use today. Instead, his work uses logical arguments to explain his perspective on the topic of miraculous works."
