Clearly Written on His Face
What are miracles as social phenomena, and what lessons do they have for anthropology? This chapter starts the inquiry into these questions by introducing both the Vineyard, and the wider Pentecostal-Charismatic tradition is sprang from. This chapter also frames the miracle as a response to a problem of divine withdrawal and absence. It also introduces the notion that the miracle as effectuating in both individuals and institutions, and that the plasticity exhibited by the miracle can be a tool for thinking through Christian variation without falling into the trap of an anthropological nominalism.
