Author: St. Ignatius (Brianchaninov)
Extracted from the letters of this great nineteenth century Russian saint, this short work profoundly conveys a truly Christian understanding of those "who seek for a sign," perhaps even more relevant now then when first written.

There are not many books, written by St Ignatius Brianchaninov, available in English, at the moment. Material that has been translated so far, seems to be the most important part of his work. This brochure is certainly needs to be studied by all people and christians in particular, as it explains how miracles should be considered in the modern times, what danger they represent and why.

"A clear cut distinction assessing the authenticity of miracles and their source. Thus this booklet gives a gift of clairvoyance for the common Christian in modern times, a time where due to a thirst for spirituality; all supernatural phenomenon are received without hesitation and without discernment.
To the start it draws our attention to the parables in the gospels and examples of such occurrences mentioned in the holy scriptures. This summarisation of that important subject gives us the key to distinguish between what is of God and what is not so.
As St John the Apostle commands us to test the Spirits, the attachment to miracles falls within that frame. The essays of Saint Ignatius Brinchaninov various advices and councils of the early saints and orthodox ascetics are quoted which shows the consistency of their conclusions. Therefore this booklet also opens a window towards the spectrums of other orthodox theologians regarding this important subject. "

I found this to be a very orthodox and clear and extensive review of the orthodox position on miracles and signs. Very helpful in our current confusing, extreme world.
