While there are many things we cannot know in regard to suffering, there are some things we can know with confidence. Hence, What in the World is God doing with COVID-19? focuses on those often forgotten theological truths that can help take those burdensome “loads” of fear and uncertainty “off” as we absorb them. It focuses on God’s use of COVID-19, and any other form of suffering, in his exposure of sin and just what it means to be under his “judgment.” It gives attention to his sovereign control over the affairs of men and just how the virus demonstrates this reality. And finally, it highlights God’s loving reach for those who, in the absence of COVID-19, might otherwise continue and die in their sin.
This book, then, affirms that the best vaccine for the uncertainty and fear spawned by COVID-19, or any other source, is a good dose of sound theology.
