RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 300364 LA English T1 Miracles : a preliminary study. A1 Lewis, C. S., Rouben Mamoulian Collection (Library of Congress), PB Macmillan Co. PP New York YR 1947 AB "This book is intended as a preliminary to historical inquiry. I am not a trained historian and I shall not examine the historical evidence for the Christian miracles. My effort is to put my readers in a position to do so. It is no use going to the texts until we have some idea about the possibility or probability of the miraculous. Those who assume that miracles cannot happen are merely wasting their time by looking into the texts: we know in advance what results they will find for they have begun by begging the question."
