NEW BOOK by Revd Tom Stuckey – Available on Amazon - £7.99
Is Covid-19 a “Kairos moment”, of judgement and opportunity? In this accessible book, Tom Stuckey weaves together bible reflections and social critique, asking how the Church’s mission and focus on justice needs to change. This is a provoking read which I hope will prompt new thinking and action.

This is an angry book because God is angry at injustice, the corruption of truth and at humanities rampageous destruction of the planet. The coming of Covid-19 is no accident. In eighteen short Bible reflections, beginning with the sudden whirlwind disasters of Job, Tom Stuckey takes us on a journey from our old normal into the abnormality of the pandemic and out again. The author, reflecting on climate change, holds before us the vision of a new creation to warn us that the anticipated new normal could become even more unstable than the old.
It is also judgement time for the Church. Justice is now the priority. Its future lies in being decentralized and dispersed with its focus ‘on the edge’. Without a radical reshaping of its life it may cease to be God’s instrument of salvation.
