    I found David Pawson’s “Why Does God Allow Natural Disasters” to be a puzzling book. The first part of the work is extremely logical and well expressed. Introductory chapters lay a basis for Pawson’s attempt to provide a scriptural answer for the question “Where was God in all this?”

    Pawson feels many modern Christians have misunderstood the character and purpose of God. He chastises believers for thinking that “God is there to save us from disease and poverty….” According to Pawson, this error arises out of a mistaken belief that God is love. Small wonder, he says, that “if we have this sentimental view of God, we have problems when natural disasters occur.” He states (I think incorrectly) that the Bible says very little about the love of God.

    This rather controversial view of God runs counter to the theology of most churches and most Christians today. But whether you agree with Pawson’s position or not, it would be worth reading this challenging book just to hear how the author backs up his opinions with scripture.
