A Christian Reflection on the Coronavirus and its Aftermath
Tom Wright is one of the best Theologians of our time and gives biblical insight to the chaos of the pandemic right now.
Tom 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.
‘This is a classic Tom Wright. It is accessible to almost anyone asking questions, and yet it manages to be demanding for those who think they know the answers. It is superbly written, utterly Bible based, and leaves one satisfied at having learned and yet wanting to know more. I read it in a sitting with pleasure, provocation, and profit. 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. . .’
