**** How about Resurrection (Daniel Petrie 1980), a personal favorite
that seems to be lost in the mists.  I haven't read it but Josef
Skorvecky's novel The Miracle Game deals directly with the concept of
miracles in the modern world.  There's also a film version of Brian
Moore's Cold Heaven, one of the most deeply moving novels ever written,
which deals with a strange miraculous occurance.  A plot description
would make it sound like a high-brow horror thriller (though it wasn't
marketed as a horror novel but "straight" fiction) but it's actually a
story about the psychology of religious faith and self-determination.
I haven't seen the film; it may not have been theatrically released but
it has been issued on video.                      Lang Thompson
