What exactly is a miracle? That's the question three women try to answer when one of them faces a sudden tragedy. In the process, they transform a simple friendship into a powerful spiritual odyssey. Recent polls reveal that while most Americans believe in miracles, few feel that a miracle could happen for them. Joan, Katie, and Meb were no exception, yet each had experienced something extraordinary: Joan's son had survived a catastrophic illness. Katie had, perhaps with the aid of Divine intervention, escaped serial killer Ted Bundy. And Meb's 6-month-old daughter had suffered abuse and was now blind; she coped through the power of prayer and faith. Katie was a skeptic, Meb a believer, and Joan struggled to mediate faith and doubt. The Miracle Chase is a story of how these three friends tried to discover what religions around the world have to tell us about miracles, why some people are blessed with miracles when others aren't, and how anyone could believe in miracles in an age of science.
