  • By Peter Harris

Product Description
The COVID-19 pandemic has been the cause of much pain. In light of this, can Christians still believe in God? And if they do, can they still believe that he is all-good, all-powerful, and all-knowing? In this book, Peter Harris looks at these difficult questions and answers yes! After establishing that COVID-19 is not God's judgment and without denigrating other worldviews, Harris demonstrates that Christianity has a moral philosophy which has led historically to robust and compassionate responses to pandemics, a response that is seen in Christian behavior today. Hospitals using modern science are on the front line in the battle with COVID-19. According to Harris, history demonstrates that it was Christians who first established hospitals and whose worldview gave rise to modern science in the first place. Turning to philosophy, Harris presents reasons to believe that God is congruent with pain with the argument from free will as his focus. Finally, Harris considers the pandemic from a pastoral argument, analyzing the pain of grief and explaining God's rescue package from a world of pain. If you want some serious reflection on COVID-19, this is a book for you.
