Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us?

Erwin W. Lutzer

Moody Publishers, 2020, 176 Pages


Faced with mass suffering, such as the current COVID pandemic, plagues, and natural disasters, we may wonder whether God actually cares about all he has created, including us humans.  In this book Erwin Lutzer (retired senior pastor of Moody Church) explains the role of God in suffering through disasters and disease. He examines how God uses tragedies throughout the Bible to speak to His people, and that ultimately God always has our wellbeing in mind, even when He doesn’t relieve our immediate pain. Find reassuring perspective and relief by learning how times of widespread trouble reveals God’s ultimate plans for our deliverance from temporary and eternal suffering.
