On January 11, 2020, a new coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2) was claimed to have made its first victim in China's Wuhan province. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization had declared COVID-19 disease to be a global pandemic.
Amid fears and uncertainties, it is natural to ask: What is God doing?
In Coronavirus and Christ, John Piper invites readers around the world to stand on the solid Rock, who is Jesus Christ, in whom our souls can be sustained by the sovereign God who ordains, governs, and reigns over all things to accomplish his wise and good purposes for those who trust in him.
Piper offers six biblical answers to the question, What is God doing through the coronavirus?—reminding us that God is at work in this moment in history.
There is a better place to stand: a Rock of certainties rather than the sand of probabilities.
