Bernie Siegel first wrote about miracles in 1986 when he was a practicing surgeon. His groundbreaking first book, Love, Medicine, & Miracles, prescribed more love as a path to healing and challenged the medical community to open to the possibility of miracles.
We hope you’ll enjoy this short excerpt from the introduction of the new paperback edition of A Book of Miracles, which includes stories Bernie compiled during his more than thirty years of practice, speaking, and teaching. Without diminishing the reality of pain and hardship, the stories show real people turning crises into blessings by responding to adversity in ways that empower and heal. They demonstrate what we are capable of and show us that we can achieve miracles as we confront life’s difficulties.
