Reported Miracles: A Critique of Hume

Cambridge Univ Pr (1994)
If one is presented with a report of a miracle, a violation of a law of nature, should one ever believe the report and so come to favor the idea that a god has acted? Hume thought not; many philosophers and theologians have agreed with him and have developed or added to his arguments. This book argues that Hume and his supporters beg questions, and that miracle stories may contribute towards reasonable belief in God. Implications in epistemology, science, history, and theology are pursued
