  1. Thanks for posting! I love having this kind of a specific reference.


  2. I found your outline of Miracles. I am expanding it into the remainder of the chapters. I hope to convince one of our pastors to lead a class on Miracles for our congregation. If you would like a copy of my work, send me a note.


    • Thanks Jim, I would enjoy reading your take on the outline. If you will note, I do have a second part to the Miracles outline floating around on the blog. I had broken it up into two parts as I had taught the book as part of a High School CS Lewis class and they had an exam half way in the middle of the book (lol!); hence I taught it in parts. If you don’t have any luck finding it on this blog, you might check out my former teaching resources blog (it is not really up to date, but the files should be there in pdf format for download, just go to the CS Lewis tab: ). Help yourself to anything useful that you find there. And I would agree, Miracles is a great book to do as a book study as a church…still very applicable today.
