1. Case Magazine
Case #27 is just about to go to press. Our theme for this issue is ‘Acts of God’, looking at natural disasters and the questions they pose for Christians: Should Christians defend God’s justice in the face of earthquakes, cyclones and the like, and if so, how? Does the media report on disasters in an ethical way, and how can Christians make a difference? How have Christians interpreted natural disasters throughout history? Can we predict or control natural disasters?
