Publisher's Summary

How belief in a loving and sovereign God helps us to make sense of and cope with the coronavirus outbreak.

We are living through a unique, era-defining period. Many of our old certainties have gone, whatever our view of the world and whatever our beliefs. The coronavirus pandemic and its effects are perplexing and unsettling for all of us. How do we begin to think it through and cope with it?

In this short yet profound book, Oxford mathematics professor John Lennox examines the coronavirus in light of various belief systems and shows how the Christian worldview not only helps us to make sense of it, but also offers us a sure and certain hope to cling to.

Here's why John Lennox wrote the book:

"This book consists of my reflections on what we are experiencing right now. I started writing it a week ago, and things have changed quickly since then and no doubt will do again.... I would invite you, the reader, to view the book like this: We are sitting in a coffee shop (if only we could!) and you have asked me the question on the book cover. I put down my coffee cup and attempt to give you an honest answer. What follows is what I would try to say in order to convey some comfort, support, and hope."

Good insights on a Christian view of the virus

Lennox has many good thoughts on why, from a Christian perspective, God would permit natural evils such as COVID-19. Quality-wise it deserves five stars. However, I gave it four stars because I feel like this was a short book written for this particular time, yet the thoughts (while good) are things I have heard before. Also, due to the nature of such a timely project, Lennox himself admits that by the time you listen to it, it is in a way dated (and in that sense, I think it might have been more suited to being a free public talk on say youtube). Nevertheless, this is an informative and good work on the subject.

a math professor should stick to 2+2 questions

as a farmer myself I feel that I'm as qualified to write a book on this book on this subject as he is. he did say he wrote it in about a week, i wish he would have taken a longer time and get more information on the subject of morality and free will. I wish i could get my money back for this book, it feels like I was just scamed.

Fantastic response, clear and easy to understand.

Thank you for responded so quickly to our current crisis with your words. I especially liked how Prof. Explained how viruses function and are an important part of our existence.
