What are they saying about My Tsunami Journey?
"In his stunning book, Dowd leads us on a frank, moving, and beautiful journey into the hardest challenge to faith: radical evil, especially in its most opaque form, natural evil - epitomized by the Asian tsunami of 2014.... His personal journal of faith and despair has now culminated in this most remarkable story. I urge everyone interested in such gut-wrenching events to read MarK's book - again and again."
"Mark Dowd is a gifted storyteller on TV and radio and in print, with his own revealing reactions always part of the story. My Tsunami Journey brings this skill to bear on the problem of evil. Where this topic is normally addressed via analysis, Dowd goes for real-life stories that challenge the faithful and nonbelievers alike. Like the extraordinary TV documentary that began the project, this written continuation is both moving and inspiring."
