Where Is God In Natural Disasters?

Where Is God In Natural Disasters?

In a four-day period, Hurricane Harvey ravaged southeastern Texas, pouring more than 40 inches of rain over the region.

Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the contiguous United States, resulting in floods that inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 13,000 rescues.*
Hurricane Irma maintained 185 MPH winds for longer than any previously recorded tropical cyclone.  It’s powerful winds make it the strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricane on record.



How can we begin to understand or explain the tough questions about world disasters?

Should we question if God is in control of major disasters, or even ask if he caused them?

How do we answer the probing questions of non-Christians?

How can God be considered good and just in light of the tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, and floods that are visited on his creation and his children?

An updated, timely, and even more accessible edition of Where Was God? by Erwin Lutzer, bestselling author and senior pastor of The Moody Church, An Act of God? is a faith journey discussion about these and other life dilemmas.
