Essential Apologetics: Fundamental Truths of Christianity by Christoph Luthardt

“There is but one objection at the bottom of all the different arguments which have been set up against the historical truth of the gospel narratives; and that is, the denial of miracles — the denial of another world. “This is an objection arising not from historical criticism, but from the philosophical view of the world. They who believe in the existence of another world, and see in the person and history of Jesus Christ a revelation thereof, find this stumbling block removed, are convinced of the truth of the miracles in His history, nay, cannot but require it to contain miracles.
