Forrester (U. of Edinburgh-New College) offers his personal reflections, rather than a systematic theological response, to the 9/11 attacks and the 2004 Christmas tsunami in the Indian Ocean. From his perspective as a Christian theologian, he seeks to read the signs of the times by moving back and forth between two times of terror--today and the early centuries of Christianity. If the good news of Jesus Christ emerged in that time of terror, and the darkness did not overcome that light, he asks whether that light continues to shine in the present darkness, and if so, how.
