This piece embodies a simple conviction: the bible has something to say concerning and/or do with natural and human crises. The bible came together in contexts of crises, under the drones of severe groans during the Babylonian exile (Hebrew Bible~Old Testament) and persecution by the Roman Empire (New Testament). And the bible has provided comfort and meaning during times of crises, for individuals and for communities, among nations and across borders, as well as the courage for resistance against oppression and violation. It is thus logical to turn to the bible when crises confront us.
