In this concise essay, John C. Whitcomb offers a practical, biblically-based examination of this question: “Does God want Christians to perform miracles today?” The text reveals how Satan uses the quest for the miraculous to draw people from truth. Jesus’ miracles served a unique purpose, yet the greater miracle is that of Jesus himself providing for our salvation. Whitcomb argues that rather than miraculous new revelations, the church of today needs a new confrontation with the power of the Holy Spirit to live out what has already been revealed in the Bible.

Newly revised in 2011, this text is a companion to John Whitcomb’s The World That Perished. It includes dozens of updates and recent citations that strengthen Whitcomb’s defense of biblical creationism. The book is organized into five sections, including more than a dozen special illustrations and explanations that will be of interest to both mature and younger readers. They include interesting sidelights on such subjects as whales, the duck-billed platypus, dinosaurs, bacterial flagellum, and more. In addition to a bibliography reflecting the latest scientific information from books and journal articles, the revised version also includes extensive subject, author, and Scripture indices.

The World that Perished, sequel to The Genesis Flood and companion to The Early Earth, affirms full faith in the authority of the Word of God. Whitcomb maintains with vigor that the Bible declares and affirms a supernatural, catastrophic flood of worldwide proportions, which he corroborates by scientific observations without a uniformitarian bias in geology. This revised edition includes more than 30 major revisions from the original, including illustrations, photos, and charts.
