5.0 out of 5 stars Well done David! "Mr Valiant for the Truth" 5 Feb 2010
By TimBall
At last! A book that doesn't try to defend God. God's love is not the sentimental "pap" that nearly every Evangelist and Pastor is preaching nowadays.
God's love sent His Only Beloved Son to The Cross!
We need to get back to the "Gospel of Righteousness" that the Bible (and David Pawson) teaches.
David poses the question," If God is all-powerful and all-loving, then how can such things happen in which there is so much suffering?", then he seeks to answer that from Scripture.
He doesn't tell us, "Natural Disasters are a complete mystery that we will never understand", he doesn't answer it, "God allows them for the good they bring out in some of us, (not all, eg Child traffickers!)", nor does he say, "God therefore can't be all-poweful if he doesn't prevent them." What he does say is,....... ," well read it for yourself and find out what he shows us Scripture teaches on this subject, if we are willing to accept it and get a more realistic picture of what God's Goodness is really about.
I can only say it came the closest to satisfying me on this question, like no other I've read, and I've read a fair few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but to the point 28 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a shorter book than many by David Pawson and can be devoured in a morning or an afternoons sitting. It is enlightening, challenging and most importantly a thoroughly biblical explanation of Why God allows natural disasters in our world.
Anyone who genuinely wonders why, and is concerned about the growing momentum of earths disasters will be enlightened and truly blessed to read this little gem.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 2 Sep 2013
By grasims
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pawson is normally a good writer with much to say, but in this book, apparently written in some haste after the 2006 tsunami, he falls down. He doesn't provide a convincing explanation of natural disasters from a Christian perspective except to say that we all deserve the wrath of God, and should therefore concentrate on being grateful when we escape it. I would recommend readers not to waste time on this book or on his idiosyncratic interpretation of John 3.16 (apparently not for sinners) or on his Christian Zionist output. "Unlocking the Bible" by contrast, is definitely worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but disconcerting book about God 4 Nov 2012
By KmVictorian - Published on Amazon.com
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. (I read it in the Kindle edition.)
