Mark Dowd Interview
“Where was God?” That’s the question former BBC reporter and Dominican Friar Mark Dowd asks in his new book, My Tsunami Journey: The Quest for God in a Broken World. Dowd chronicles his fact-finding mission after the devastation of the 2004 tsunami in Thailand which was the deadliest in human history with over 230,000 deaths. This is also the question people ask after any terrible natural disaster. How can a benevolent, all-powerful God allow such suffering among the humans he created?
