Professor White produces a fresh and thought provoking slant by introducing hard science into answering the question "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Well worth reading. -- Professor Sam Berry
"This is one of the most helpful books I have read on the question that troubles all sensitive Christian minds - why is there evil and suffering in the world and why does God allow disasters? What will you get in this book? Good science and good theology. Robert White has a thorough understanding of both and roots all his thinking and writing in careful interpretation of key biblical teaching. What will you not get? Simplistic answers and solutions that either insult your intelligence or dismiss the pain of your suffering - or the suffering of those caught up in terrifying disasters or personal tragedy. This is not 'the answer we've all been waiting for'. But it goes a long way in helping us to respond wisely to realities we cannot ultimately explain, by giving us resources that are rich in biblical truth, scientific fact, and pastoral wisdom." -- Revd Dr Chris Wright
`A masterly survey of the natural phenomena that provide so generously for our well-being and development as humans on Planet Earth ... (celebrates) God's great capacity to turn the worst of seeming tragedies into the greatest of triumphs.' -- Sir John Houghton
"I am so grateful that Bob White has taken the time to write this book. His scientific expertise as a geophysicist gives his analysis of disasters depth and reliability. But more than that, he integrates his science with sociological and political insights, and then opens them up to careful biblical and theological exploration. The result is an amazing and significant volume, beautifully crafted, easy to read, and a wonderful resource for anyone who has ever thought about these issues." -- Elaine Storkey, philosopher, sociologist and theologian
