An earthquake flattens Japanese cities, a hurricane barrels up America's eastern seaboard, a tornado devastates a midwestern town . . . When natural disasters strike, is God in control? Why does he allow such tragedies to occur? Without pretending to know God's mind, Lutzer offers reassuring answers about the Almighty's purposes, goodness, and ultimate plan. Previously titled Where Was God? 144 pages, softcover from Tyndale.
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.
