The devastating earthquake, and the following tsunami, that has just struck Japan will no doubt leave many asking the question: "What is God up to? Where is He in all of this?"
Similar questions were asked of the Indian Ocean tsunami back in 2004. After that disaster John Piper wrote a helpful article about how we think Christianly about such calamities. It is well worth reading as we think through, both for ourselves and for the questions others will be asking us, how we respond biblically to this catastrophe.
