What should we 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, and the World Health Organization.”
N. T. Wright examines these reactions to the virus and finds them wanting. Instead, he shows that a careful reading of the Bible and Christian history offers simple though profound answers to our many questions, including:

  • What should be the Christian response?
  • How should we think about God?
  • How do we live in the present?
  • Why should we lament?
  • What should we learn about ourselves?
  • How do we recover?

Written by one of the world’s foremost New Testament scholars, God and the Pandemic serves as a guide for reading today’s world events through the light of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
