It is undoubtedly the case that unlike any other time in recent history people are asking BIG questions. As Christians we need to be ready to offer what answers we can - and very often we feel inadequate for the task. Fortunately God has blessed us with gifted individuals who can help us. John Lennox is one of them.
The Good Book Company have published a short (~60 pages) little book tackling the biggest question of our times, Where is God in a coronavirus world? I want to commend this book to you. Maybe you are wrestling with that question yourself - maybe your confidence in God has been shaken in these times. Here is a biblical response that will not take away much of the sorrow of these times, but will restore our hope as it gives us reasons to remain confident in Christ.
I have several spare copies of this - if you need one, just get in touch and I will do what I can to get it to you. Alternatively you can order from the Good Book company website (the book is only £2.54). I want to especially encourage you to use this as a resource to distribute to others - be sure to include some contact details or include some details about our online services. This short book is an excellent and timely tool for the church to make use of.
"Perhaps the coronavirus might function as a huge loudspeaker, reminding us of the ultimate statistic: that one out of every one of us dies. If this induces us to look to the God we may have ignored for years... then the coronavirus, in spite of the havoc it has wreaked, will have served a very healthy purpose."
