Item description for Soul Storm, Finding God Amidst Disaster, Reflections from a Hurricane Katrina Survivor by Bruce Smith...

Overview
Still reeling from the chaos of Hurricane Katrina--and the death of his grandmother as well as his divorce that same year--former investment broker, minister, and first-time author Bruce Lee Smith began to collect his thoughts on faith, survival, and recovery. The electrifying result is Soul Storm, a carefully crafted narrative utilizing examples from the Bible, art, literature, business, and history demonstrating how different people throughout the ages and the world have used disastrous circumstances as a launching point for rebuilding their souls and reconstructing their lives. Reflecting on his own personal disasters, his stepfather_s death at age twenty-seven, a back injury that resulted in his sacrifice of a tennis career, his divorce, his grandmother's death, and other catastrophes, as well as national disasters that affect the country_s spiritual and emotional wellbeing, Smith asks the difficult questions: Is God involved? Is He good? Is He speaking to us through these events? Can any good purpose come from such events? Soul Storm: Finding God Amidst Disaster is not a typical motivational book. Offering Hurricane Katrina as both a symbol and a practical reference point, Smith taps into the fear we all wrestle with when faced with overwhelming, sudden life changes. Smith_s ability to see God_s bigger plan above the rubble is a gift to all of us, whether we are trying to survive the aftereffects of a hurricane, an illness, or any type of calamity. As he unravels the issues of politics, religion, race, psychology, justice, science, compassion, humanity, love, and restoration bound up in this recent disaster, he takes us on a journey that ultimately leads us back to God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Soul Storm, Finding God Amidst Disaster, Reflections from a Hurricane Katrina Survivor?

Inspirational Read  May 4, 2007
Bruce Smith takes readers through his life's journey of ups and downs and draws parallels between his personal experiences and the events that so devastated his native New Orleans. His writing gives hope to those who may be going through trials of their own as he clearly shows how God's grace and mercy are evident even in the midst of storms. I highly recommend this book.
