William Lane Craig on Miracles

Not a bad run-down on Miracle-speak, but WL Craig's overlooks one fairly powerful argument contra-miracles: a God who only allows Mary to appear, or other fairly trivial events, yet does not say make an angel appear over a Panzer division--or answer the prayers of thousands of mothers with soldiers off at war-- would have a substantially greater degree of sinisterness than a Being who does not allow for miracles. In other words, if miracles occur, that does not help the orthodox believer, but in fact makes the Justice of God seem more unlikely. (That's paraphrasing James Keller)
