How can an omnipotent God of love allow disasters? Bob White, a leading geophysicist, tackles one of the biggest conundrums in Christian thinking. He combines a profound knowledge of the science behind dramatic natural events with thorough research into their impact, and underpins it with a carefully reasoned theological response. Examining each type in turn, he illuminates the way in which human factors turn natural processes, without which the earth would be sterile and uninhabitable, into disasters: how population growth, widespread inequality, foolish farming and building practices, and climate change all contribute, exacerbating heat waves, famines, and droughts.
