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 Dr. Erwin W. 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.
Tornadoes. Tsunamis. Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Why does God allow such disasters to happen? Our hearts ache when we remember the hundreds of thousands of people left homeless and without hope when Hurricane Katrina crashed against the Gulf Coast. Or the staggering death toll in Japan after the islandÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«ÌÎÌÊs earthquake and tsunami swept away entire villages.
Whether we see the devastating accounts of a natural disaster in the news or personally face a catastrophe, we find ourselves asking, are these truly the acts of a loving and compassionate God?
In "An Act of God?" (an updated edition of the previously published "Where Was God?"), Lutzer tackles this tough subject head-on, offering real answers as well as comfort and hope to those who struggle with challenges to their faith. In doing so, he addresses the questions we all ask, including: Does God care about what happens in this world? Do natural disasters mean God is angry with us? Can we still trust God? What, if anything, can we say to those who are suffering?
If youÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«ÌÎÌÊve ever felt helpless and confused by the horrors of natural disasters, devastation or loss, step inside these pages where youÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«ÌÎÌÊll get to know the real face of God ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å and find the answers to some of lifeÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«ÌÎÌÊs most difficult questions.
