N.T. Wright
N. T. Wright is the Chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He is the award-winning author of many books, including After You Believe, Surprised by Hope, Simply Christian, The Challenge of Jesus, and The Meaning of Jesus (coauthored with Marcus Borg), as well as the series Christian Origins and the Question of God. In his latest book “God and the Pandemic”, N. T. invites readers to discover a different way of seeing and responding to the Coronavirus pandemic, an approach drawing on Scripture, Christian history, and the way of living, thinking, and praying revealed to us by Jesus. N. T. examines a number of reactions people have had to the virus, such as: "This is a sign of the End", "It's all predicted in the book of Revelation", "This is a call to repent. God is judging the world and through this disease he's telling us to change", "It's the fault of the Chinese, the government, the World Health Organization…". Throughout his book, he shows that a careful reading of the Bible and Christian history offers simple though profound answers to our many questions, including: What should be the Christian response? How should we think about God? How do we live in the present? Why should we lament? What should we learn about ourselves? How do we recover? Written by one of the world's foremost New Testament scholars, God and the Pandemic will serve as your guide to read the events of today through the light of Jesus' death and resurrection. http://ntwrightonline.org

Vijay Krishnan
Growing up as a pastor’s kid, the church was a part of Vijay’s life from the beginning. It was there that he met his Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. The church provided Vijay opportunities to form friendships that have lasted for decades, learn about his spiritual gifts and abilities, and receive guidance from the generation ahead of him. However, during his university years and subsequent corporate work experience, Vijay discovered that for most people, the church was an obstruction (not a pathway) to finding God. He heard story after story of individuals who were sincerely seeking God but encountered hypocrisy, hurt, irrelevance and boredom. Truthfully, this discovery wrecked him. Vijay resolved that if he ever had a chance to be a part of a church community that was able to authentically (though not perfectly) introduce people to Jesus, he would jump in with both feet. God provided that opportunity here at The Well. http://thewell.ca
