Reviews for What Good is God?
“If you read, learn, and inwardly digest both the science and the
faith in this book, which earths the theology of suffering in the
raw experiences of those who have suffered, then your faith will
be more intelligent, your empathy more compassionate and your
commitment to act more justly will be more determined.”
The Right Reverend James Jones, KBE, formerly Bishop of Liverpool
and Chair of the Independent Hillsborough Panel
“Twenty-four hour news coverage constantly reminds us of the
prevalence of disasters across the world and within our own
communities. How are we to understand the presence of God in the
midst of such disasters? In this book, Roger Abbott and Robert White
bring together a series of essays that each seek not only to help us
to understand disasters theologically, but also how we can build
communities of resilience and hope that can change the world.”
Revd Professor John Swinton, Professor in Practical Theology
