Soul Storm: Finding God Amidst Disaster by Bruce Smith
Reflections from a Hurricane Katrina survivor. Soul Storm is an honest and open discussion about the dark realities we all face as humans living in a broken world. Smith draws on literature, history, real-life stories, and gut-wrenching experiences as a survivor of family turmoil and natureï¿½s recent disasters, including Hurricane Katrina, to encourage us to ask the right questions: Is God involved? Is He good? Is He speaking to us through these events individually and as a people? Can any good purpose come from such events? These and countless other questions need adequate answers amongst the rubble of our lives. This book tackles these questions head-on and offers the reader an intelligent and hopeful narrative of Godï¿½s work in the middle of disaster.
From January 2005 until Hurricane Katrina arrived, Bruce Lee Smith was the director of Development and a teaching pastor at Uptown Church in New Orleans. Since the storm, Bruce has focused his energies on writing and speaking about God's providence. He is the founder of StormKat Ministries, an organization devoted to critical thinking, speaking, and writing with the aim of engaging people who desperately need the message of hope revealed in the Gospel.
