God and the Pandemic - A Christian Reflection on the Coronavirus and its Aftermath

Product code: 085118


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 they 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 goverment, 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 teaching and examples of scripture, and above all on the way of living, thinking and praying revealed to us by Jesus.
