In early 2020, a highly contagious virus made its way around the world. In a matter of days the things that many people relied on for security were shown to be flimsy sources of hope. Authors from three of the worst–affected countries in Europe have united in this book to reflect on the only comfort we have in life and death – Jesus Christ. Each taking a different aspect of what this hope looks like, they answer the question, what can we believe and hope for in times like this?

This short book contains sustenance for a long journey – the journey of life! Prompted by the anxiety, fear and uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the authors have produced a gem of a book that succinctly deals with life’s big issues. The three authors helpfully bring different cultural perspectives and insights. The book holds together well because each one digs deep into the Bible for nuggets of truth from which to draw nourishment and hope. Those who have been following Jesus for a long time and those who are simply exploring the Christian faith will find encouragement and much to consider.

When a storm such as this pandemic is raging, it is vital to drop the strong anchor of Christian hope into the bedrock of God’s Word, God’s promises and God’s proven faithfulness. This short book does exactly that. And when many false assumptions and apocalyptic theories swirl around, it is vital to be assured of what the Bible does (and doesn’t) teach about evil and suffering. This book does that too. Simple but solidly biblical, tackling tough issues in a very readable way – I strongly commend it.
