Description

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."
 
John Lennox is an Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Emeritus Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at Green Templeton College. He is also an Associate Fellow of the Said Business School and an Adjunct Lecturer for The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He has been part of numerous public debates defending the Christian faith against well known atheists including Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Peter Singer.

Commendations

Which of us hasn’t been confronted with urgent and deep questions as we have faced the threat of the coronavirus? John Lennox’s engaging and profound book will help both committed Christians and the open-minded of any faith or none find answers from the Christian faith that provide both perspective and hope.

In the last few months the world has changed. John has written a number of books but none before in the space of a week, as he has this one. Yet despite its brief gestation, this book puts the coronavirus pandemic into a historical, scientific, theological and personal perspective that will help all of us who are in the midst of this crisis to view the situation though a wider-angled lens.

Dr David Cranston

Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Oxford; Governing Body Fellow of Green Templeton College

A clear, compassionate and critical read for these times. This book will give those who believe renewed confidence in why they believe; and it will help those yet to believe to find the key answers they seek.
