Virus as a Summons to Faith: Biblical Reflections in a Time of Loss, Grief, and Anxiety by Walter Brueggemann

Walter Brueggemann, world renowned author and old testament theologian, published this book in 2020 after the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic. As health and human services leaders and professionals of faith-based organizations this book is both timely and highly relevant. For those looking for deeper meaning around the pandemic through the lens of their faith, this short read is well worth the time. While it may be read in an afternoon, it contains ideas to be pondered and returned to again and again. The author examines pestilence and suffering from a Biblical perspective. It is at once challenging, convicting and comforting as Brueggemann leads the reader into their own limitations and onward to the wonder and holiness of God.
