How can an omnipotent God of Love allow hurricanes, earthquakes, droughts and the suffering they bring? Bob White, a geophysicist, tackles one of the biggest conundrums in Christian thinking. He combines a profound knowledge of the science behind natural events with thorough research into their impact, and underpins it with a carefully thought through theological response. Examining each type in turn, he illuminates the way in which human factors almost always turn natural processes, without which the earth would be sterile and uninhabitable, into disasters: population growth, widespread inequality, foolish farming and building practices and climate change all contribute, exacerbating heat waves, famines and droughts. He then outlines the insights that Jacob, Job and Jesus offer. This is an enormously readable book permeated with engaging insights into the human condition and the biblical response.
