In 2017, Cascade Books published The Nature Miracles of Jesus: Problems, Perspectives, and Prospects by Graham H. Twelftree. Graham H. Twelftree is the Academic Dean and Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the London School of Theology. He is the author of numerous books, most recently Paul and the Miraculous: A Historical Reconstruction (2013).

From the publisher’s description of The Nature Miracles of Jesus:

The nature miracle stories of Jesus–walking on the water or feeding thousands with a small amount of food, for example–are so spectacular that many find them a problem, whether historical, philosophical, or even theological. This is the first book to tackle this problem head on. Do the stories reflect events in the life of the historical Jesus, or are they myths or legends? Or, perhaps they grew out of parables or from more ordinary events into the incredible stories we now have. Or, again, perhaps this the wrong approach! A group of high-ranking biblical historians, philosophers, and theologians with very diverse views set out to provide possible answers. Contributors include: – James Crossley – Eric Eve – Craig S. Keener – Michael Levine – Timothy J. McGrew – Scot McKnight – Graham H. Twelftree – Ruben Zimmermann
