About the Author

Mike McHargue, also known as "Science Mike," is the host or co-host of two podcasts, Ask Science Mike and The Liturgists Podcast, which have attracted a curious following among Christians, the spiritually interested, and the religiously unaffiliated. He is the author of Finding God in the Waves, and his work has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post, and on All Things Considered. Mike is an in-demand speaker who appears all over the world--including recent stops at Google and MIT.


"Seldom do I find a book that puts together good psychology, readable science, and practical wisdom as what you now have in your hands! You're a Miracle will reveal that Mike McHargue is a bit of a miracle, too."--Richard Rohr, New York Times bestselling author of The Universal Christ

"This book is full of incredibly important revelations that could change your life. Mike McHargue is not only the smartest person we know, but he has an uncanny ability for communicating complex matters like he's talking to you at a party (not one of those parties with loud music where you can't really hear what people are saying so you just nod a lot, but instead one of those parties with light piano music, filled with smart and interesting people)."--Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, New York Times bestselling authors of The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek

"When Mike McHargue writes about the changes in his life from the beginning of the writing process until the end, I nearly cried with relief, because isn't that how life is for all of us? It changes, sometimes over and over, and right in the middle of all the chaos, we keep showing up, telling the truth, writing the story of our lives even as we struggle to make sense of it ourselves. This book feels human, and that's one of the highest compliments I can give."--Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect
