Through reviewing the literature about religion belief and natural disaster, this paper argues that religious belief is an important contextual and identity factor in how religious persons understand, interpret, and respond to natural disasters. Religious belief can impact the public's disaster response in both constructive and harmful ways. Based on these findings summarized and synthesized in this study, the implication for disaster risk reduction in religious communities is also discussed.
