Sproul's redesigned book explains the sovereignty of God over disaster and acts of terrorism.
In the catastrophes and disasters we all witness, we may ask "Where is God?" It's difficult to reconcile a just and good God with one who is sovereign over horrible destruction. But in times of calamity, grief, and fear, we need to understand the character of God and his relationship to difficult events. More specifically, where is God in instances of terror and man-wrought disaster?
R. C. Sproul discusses this very issue--the presence of God when ideological differences turn violent. God does not abandon us, says Sproul, but while God is sovereign over blessings, he is also sovereign over acts of terror. Sproul's analysis is challenging, but it is one that no Christian can afford to ignore. Only when we begin to understand the nature of God can we find peace and trust in times of terror and sorrow.
