Take a good look at our lead editorial this issue. I believe in miracles and in divine healing. But the “economy of miracles” suggests they are infrequent; otherwise the word “miracle” loses its meaning. The miracle business is getting out of hand. The time has come for evangelicals to adopt a cautious attitude toward extravagant claims and to reject accounts that are unsubstantiated. Common sense and belief in miracles should go hand in hand.
