Can a skeptical doctor be persuaded that there is medical evidence for modern day healing?

Craig Keener, author of ‘Miracles Today’, returns to the show to debate one of his fiercest critics Peter May, a retired medical doctor who says he has never encountered a compelling case of miracle healing after decades of investigation. Craig is joined by Joshua Brown of the Global Medical Research Institute who defends two cases of healing - of a digestive tract and restored vision - which he says pass Peter May’s criterion for miracles.

Justin also hears from Alanzo Paul on the upcoming ‘Reboot’ event from OCCA.
