Suffering, Sovereignty, and the Coronavirus Crisis

Three weeks ago I did a 45-minute video chat with my friend Scott Lindsay of Faithlife, the makers of Logos Bible Software. We discussed suffering, God’s sovereignty, and the coronavirus crisis, and also talked about the good things that God is doing through this time.

Scott opened up some time for Q&A, and those watching sent in some great questions, including:

- How do you best bring up the reality of eternity to someone who is not saved in the midst of this pandemic?

- Is it helpful to talk about the end times in those conversations?

- What encouragement is there for church leaders during this time?

Hope you find this helpful!

If you’d like to read more about God’s sovereignty and meaningful human choice, see my book hand in Hand. For the problem of evil and suffering, see my big book If God Is Good, and these smaller spinoffs, including the devotional 90 Days of God’s Goodness, The Goodness of God, and the booklet If God Is God, Why Do We Hurt?
