A new anthology of modern miracles aims to show Bible skeptics that God does wonders and invites them to see the miracles in their own lives.
"I hope that the collective witness of these authors would make someone say, maybe this could be real," Don Jacobson, a miracle survivor and publisher, told the Christian Post in an interview this week. Jacobson's forthcoming project and book It's A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People, chronicles 45 modern miracles.

A prominent official in the Roman Catholic Church has stated that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi should be denied the sacrament of Holy Communion over her pro-choice politics.
Cardinal Raymond Burke, head of the Vatican's highest court, said in an interview with the Catholic publication The Wanderer earlier this month that he believed Pelosi violated Canon 915. Part of the Church's Code of Canon Law, Canon 915 is part of several canons that deal with who can and cannot receive the sacrament of Holy Communion in the Catholic Church.
"Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion," reads Canon 915. more >>

A Christian publication geared towards churches and ministries has recently published its annual lists of the 100 largest and fastest growing churches in the United States.
Outreach Magazine, a California-based publication that includes ideas, features, and interviews with evangelicals, published the two lists earlier this month. With approximately 43,500 worship attendees, Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church of Houston, Texas, was number one in the largest church category. Triumph Church of Detroit, Mich., was the fastest growing, having experienced an increase of about 3,800 worship attendees or 49 percent.
High ranking congregations on both lists included NewSpring Church of Anderson, S.C., which was number 2 on the fastest-growing list and number 4 on the largest. NewSpring Central Communications Director Suzanne Swift told The Christian Post that they were "honored" by the blessings God had given their congregation. more >>
HOUSTON, Texas — Joel Osteen, senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, the largest and one of the most diverse churches in the U.S., is releasing his newest book, Break Out! 5 Keys to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life, next week. In his book, Osteen reveals biblical and personal examples of God's miraculous work, and shares how Christians can positively impact their lives by praying boldly, changing their attitudes, and trusting in God's plan and His timetable.
Osteen spoke to The Christian Post on Sunday about why people should pray for greatness, opposed to praying to just get by. He also explained why believers need to forgive themselves of past sins, and why Christians must stay faithful in God's plan, especially during times of great struggle, so they can live a purposeful life that reveals God's grace and power.
