We've all read the headlines. Epic weather disasters of "Biblical proportions" involving floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards seem to be occuring at a record pace. To some, it may seem as if the climate of the planet is going out of control.
Yet what does the Bible say about the weather? Does it say anything about climate change or global warming? Or has God simply left us to our own devices?
The Bible contains hundreds of verses that refer to the weather and who is in control of it. Scripture is filled with examples of how God has used weather both as a warning and as a blessing. It also contains examples of how weather has been used in times of battle and even as a means of judgment.
Building on examples from the past, present, and future, this book addresses weather and climate from a Biblical perspective. It also asks the question: where is God when disaster hits?
