As you may know if you’ve read my previous posts, I’m in the process of doing an 18-month project in which I’m trying to figure out what it REALLY means to “follow Jesus.” One order of business my readers have suggested I take on is the miracles recorded in the Gospels.

Last week I spent a few days in Rome with, among others, Tony Jones. As someone who hasn’t ever been to Rome, it was particularly helpful for me to have a Christian historian along.
