About the book: “And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles.” Mormon 9:19
In our day, we have not witnessed the Red Sea parting, but does this mean that miracles have ceased? On the contrary — among members of the Church, there have always existed sacred and profound experiences that serve to uplift individuals and strengthen families. Now, readers can be edified by the faith-affirming accounts shared in Divine Intervention, a collection of inspiring tales of survival from Church leaders, political leaders, and everyday individuals. These Latter-day Saints share life-changing miraculous moments — from President Snow’s survival on the storm-tossed sea to the harrowing account of a baby boy who cheated death. Every narrative is unique, but one thing ties them together: each story demonstrates the Lord’s love for His children and evidences the reality of marvelous miracles occurring in our day.
My Review: This is an inspiring book detailing miraculous moments in the lives of LDS Church members. I really enjoyed reading all of them. I love that this shows that there are miracles that occur in all our day, because that gives me hope that I too will see miracles. I know that I have seen miracles in my own life, I can't say that they all are as big or dramatic as some of these stories, but they are small, simple and perfect for me in my own individual life. Make time to read this book, you won't regret it!
