In a world where natural disasters are on the rise, Professor Robert White and Reverend Doctor Roger Abbott bring together a variety of voices to explore how we respond, from both a practical and faith-lead viewpoint, to such tragedy.

Including the stories of the survivors themselves and those who work with them, this is essential reading for those looking to understand how we can deal with the fallout of seemingly chaotic cataclysms. The mixture of voices from responders and academics adds further depth to a difficult and oft-unexplored subject.

Roger Abbott is Senior Research Associate in ‘Natural’ Disasters for The Faraday Institute, Cambridge. Following many years in pastoral work, where his first introductions to responding to disasters were learned, he went on to gain his Ph.D. in a practical theology of major incident response in the U.K., before expanding his research experience more globally with The Faraday Institute. His publications include Sit on Our Hands, or Stand on Our Feet? (2013), Hello? Is Anyone There? and Narratives of Faith from the Haiti Earthquake (2019). He has published in journals such as Religions and Practical Theology. He has also been a volunteer chaplain responder to major disasters in the U.K. and abroad.

|Professor Robert (Bob) White is Professor of Geophysics in the Department of Earth Sciences at Cambridge and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1994. He is Director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion.
