Tornado God

American Religion and Violent Weather

Peter J. Thuesen

  • Reveals how the weather has repeatedly confronted Americans with the most difficult problems in theology
  • Clarifies urgent ethical problems, including climate change and the issue of human complicity in natural disasters
  • Shows how the weather has complicated Americans' sense of their own destiny-how much is self-determined and how much is beyond their understanding or control
