God and the Pandemic
â€˜Superbly written, utterly Bible based. . . Do not hesitate!â€™ - Archbishop Justin Welby
Pandemic, Panic, Pangolin, Pandemonium. . .
What are we supposed to think about the coronavirus crisis?
Some people think they know: â€˜This is a sign of the End,â€™ they say. â€˜Itâ€™s all predicted in the book of Revelation.â€™
Others disagree but are equally clear: â€˜This is a call to repent. God is judging the world and through this disease heâ€™s telling us to change.â€™
Some join in the chorus of blame and condemnation: â€˜Itâ€™s the fault of the Chinese, the government, the World Health Organization. . .â€™
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 â€“ 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.
