Responding to The Uninvited Visitor

COVID-19 Pandemic and the Lessons It Has Taught Us

edited by Opoku Onyinah, Alfred Koduah

Written by an array of seasoned Christian leaders, theologians and academics, this book captures the various aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic with the view of drawing lessons for the future. It examines the pandemic from historical, biblical, theological, medical, psychological, socio- cultural, political, economic, educational as well as mission and evangelistic perspectives. It also discusses the impact of the pandemic on Africans in the diaspora, family life, church administration, and the youth. The book makes several recommendations on how the church must reposition itself in the post-COVID-19 era to enable it to maintain and expand its missional activities without compromising the core values of the Christian faith.
