Summary
The Bible often speaks of natural disasters, but its insights have been insufficiently explored. Terence Fretheim offers fresh readings of familiar Old Testament passages--creation, the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the plagues of Egypt, the suffering of Job, and the biblical laments--to provide biblical resources for working through this topic. He presents an understanding of creation as good, but not perfect; examines the human experience of suffering; and explores the role of humans in the creative process. Fretheim shows the God of the Bible to be a compassionate, suffering, relational God, one we can turn to in prayer in times of disaster. --from publisher description
