The coronavirus pandemic has taken over much of our lives in the past few months. But it has also raised a series of unexpected and pressing questions. Some of these are especially relevant for those working on the frontline in hospitals and other medical facilities. But even those of us stuck at home are being faced with ethical dilemmas and unprecedented emotional demands.
Although I would not begin to claim to have all the answers, I have gathered some resources on this page which I hope might spark conversation and thinking for doctors, Christians and just about anyone during this era of Covid-19.
I wrote a chapter in the recently published Healthy Faith and the Coronavirus Crisis about how Christians can face death well. You can now buy the book here, which includes a series of excellent contributions on everything from loneliness to unemployment, from prayer to evangelism from writers including Tom Wright, Krish Kandiah, Kate Wharton, Dan Strange and Jill Weber.
Several episodes of my podcast, Matters of Life and Death, also tackle various aspects of the pandemic, including the ethics of vaccines, the history of the Christian church during times of plague, and how coronavirus intersects with issues in technology.
