The Doors of the Sea: Where Was God in the Tsunami?

One of the most challenging objections to God is also one of the most ancient ones: How could a good God allow such evil and suffering? Is he not powerful enough to stop it? Or, if he is, why doesn’t he? Natural disasters like tsunamis and earthquakes inevitably evoke questions about and interrogations of the divine. Scholar David Bentley Hart invites Christians to allow the weight of the world’s horrors to affect them even as they hold to the hope that God will bring his kingdom, where suffering and evil find no place.
