In this new book Miracles We Have Seen, Dr. Harley A. Rotbart puts together basically an anthology of different stories told from doctors, students, professionals and parents that tell us about the miracles they have seen working in their professions. I received this book from Netgalley, because I am always looking for new ways that the impossible is made possible. I love to hear about people who have miraculous recoveries, and have experiences that just aren’t explainable. It’s what I love, can’t help it!
This book is split up into different sections, there are some labeled miraculous recovery, there are some about mysterious people and there are others about weird phenomena. I loved each section, though some of them gave me goosebumps because the stories were just so phenomenal. One that really tripped me out was a story about a girl in the 1980’s who was bitten by a bat and contracted rabies. The girl was in bad shape, she was in a medically induced coma so that they could keep her brain from dying. A couple of priests came into her room and prayed for her, and soon she was able to be let out of the coma, and recovered completely. Now she works in a bat sanctuary. I found this story to be incredible because no one before then had ever survived rabies, and so it just shows how amazing prayer can be.
I know some people don’t believe in this stuff, and that’s fine, but when things happen in the right place at the right time, it is miraculous whether that is earth bound or heaven sent, it doesn’t matter as long as things get corrected the way that they need to be and people are healed. I liked this book a lot and would think it would be great for anyone looking for something bigger than themselves. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
