Miracles: Source of Truth or Violation of Natural Law?

From the beginning, Christian faith has been founded on the evidence of miracles: the Incarnation, the Resurrection, the signs and wonders worked by Jesus, the workings of the Holy Spirit in the Church. But miracles, especially those claimed to have happened after New Testament times, have provoked unease and skepticism, even among Christians. Enlightenment rationalism tended to argue them away completely. Professor Johnson asks: what place do miracles have in the Biblical vision? And how should we understand them today? 

This event is co-presented with the Harvard Catholic Forum, as their Daniel Harrington SJ Memorial Lecture. This event is co-sponsored by the Saint Benedict Institute, the Nova Forum, the Institute for Faith and Culture, the St. Paul's Catholic University Center, St. Peter Parish (Cambridge, MA), Catholic Parishes of Arlington, MA, and the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry.
