Item description for Miracles: The Listener/The Gifted by Terri Blackstock...
Overview Sam Bennett hears voices from people all around him just by being near them, and a massive natural disaster leads to a supernatural transformation in the lives of three friends, in two novels featured together for the first time.
In a world of doubt, disillusionment, and disbelief--it's time for miracles
For all who believe in the unseen comes this gift of Miracles--two stand-alone stories now together for the first time. You'll savor these stories from award-winning, best-selling author Terri Blackstock that reveal how thin the wall really is between heaven and earth . . . and how God remains a God of miracles even today.
The Listener--Something strange happened to Sam Bennett this morning. He is hearing the thoughts of other people. The waitress at the coffee shop. The elevator operator in Sam's office building. His wife, his secretary, even his pastor. Simply by looking at them, Sam can hear their hearts' deepest needs. Is he going crazy . . . or about to experience a miracle beyond his wildest dreams?
The Gifted--Three friends rescued from the rubble of an earthquake are just glad to be alive. They soon realize, however, that something much more miraculous happened during the earthquake . . . something supernatural. Understanding their newly acquired powers is difficult enough. But when the gifts suddenly vanish, even greater questions arise about the origin and obligations of these miraculous gifts from above.

More About Terri Blackstock
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

Absolutely unique Apr 21, 2008
Miracles is a book that makes us rethink our lives. What are we doing that counts in our lives? It's a must read for every Christian. We only have one life to live, let's make it count. I enjoyed the book tremendously. I saw myself running from place to place to keep up with the team. It was an experience, let me tell you. (I dare you to try it) I shead a few tears but most of all it caused me to take a look at my life.

Really sweet book. Makes you realize all we have to do to reach people for Jesus is to be willing to talk to them about it.

The Listener Mar 1, 2008
I read The Listener for the first time several years ago, under its original title, THE HEART READER. I was so impressed I decided all the ladies in my church group should read it, too. The first lady to take it was reading it when she became ill and went to the hospital. I never got my book back and tried for some time to replace it. When I found another copy (at a used book store), there were two--one with the author's name, the other shown by "Anonymous." I bought another copy and read it again. Although it has a not-quite-sci-fi feeling to it, I thought it one of the most challenging books I've ever read. I highly recommend it. The Gifted makes a wonderful sequel.
