Modern Miracles

A work in progress about the role of miracles in contemporary Egypt.

Egypt is full of miracles, large and small; pharaonic, jewish, christian, and islamic; historic and modern. They are fascinating stories to outsiders but play a living role in the communities who share them.

Instead of approaching religion through doctrine or politics we will look at it through the physical manifestations of God in the world.

In the west, miracles are often seen as rare, ancient and abstract; in Egypt they are common and discussed as the daily news. We will bridge this gap of understanding from the distant Bible stories to miracles continuing role in the modern world.
