God and the Pandemic
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.
