God and the Pandemic: A Christian Reflection on the Coronavirus and Its Aftermath
'Superbly written, utterly Bible based. . . Do not hesitate!'
Archbishop Justin Welby
What are we supposed to think about the coronavirus crisis? Some people think they know: 'This is a sign of the End,' they say. 'It's all predicted in the book of Revelation.'
Others disagree but are equally clear: 'This is a call to repent. God is judging the world and through this disease he's telling us to change.'
Some join in the chorus of blame and condemnation: 'It's the fault of the Chinese, the government, the World Health Organization...'
Tom Wright examines these reactions to the virus and finds them wanting.
Instead, he invites you to consider a different way of seeing and responding - a way that draws on the teachings and examples of scripture, and above all on the way of living, thinking and praying revealed to us by Jesus.
