GOD HAS ALWAYS DONE MIRACLES IN HIS CHURCH ~ AND STILL DOES!
The Holy Spirit has never left the Church and neither have His supernatural gifts and manifestations. They have been available in every century — from the days of the Apostolic Fathers, to the desert monks of Egypt asnd Syria, to the missionary outreaches of the Middle Ages, to the Reformation era and the awakenings and revivals that followed, to the Pentecostal explosion of the Twentieth Century and the increase of signs and wonders in the Twenty-first.
Miracles, healings, deliverances, prophecies, dreams, visions — even raising the dead! — have all been in operation throughout the history of the Church. Anglicans, Baptists, Catholics, Congregationalists, Lutherans, Methodists, Moravians, Presbyterians, Quakers and many others have experienced the supernatural gifts and workings of the Spirit over the centuries.
Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church gathers up numerous accounts from a variety of historical sources and provides a handy reference for those who want to know more about:
Jeff Doles Miracles and Manifestations is an outstanding collection of original documents which chronicle the "greater works" Jesus promised to his followers throughout church history. Doles unearths a breadth of material, some of which is not well known in the scholarly world. This work is equally useful both to the theologian and to the devotional reader.

“I have seen and own a large number of books on the manifested power of God through Church history. But I have never seen such a complete collection in one volume as is in Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church by Jeff Doles. If you have a school, teach church history, teach on the power of God, have interest or know someone who does, this is the only book you’ll need on the subject. It is full of quotes from the writings of people from the time of the Gospels until now. It is like a chronological encyclopedia of the Holy Spirit’s working in church history.”

Amazed by the Power of God
and God’s Supernatural Power in You
"Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church is an excellent resource for any student of the Bible. Jeff Doles has done a masterful job of relating historical facts in a compendium that is actually both easy to read and impacting. He clearly debunks the theory that miracles and manifestations of the Holy Spirit ceased when the apostles died or when the New Testament canon was completed. This book is well worth reading. You will be amazed at how much was going on in the church, even during what we call the “Dark Ages.” You may also be surprised at the number of supernatural events that occurred during the ministry of Reformers and Revivalists since those dark ages.
"As I discovered in my research for my own book, Signs and Wonders – To Seek or Not to Seek, God’s primary method of making believers out of unbelievers is the supernatural activity of the Holy Spirit. Jeff Doles’ book will help every believer to accept the renewal of the miraculous in our own day. My strong advice for every Christian is to get and read this book."
