Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us?

As a pandemic and other issues challenge people worldwide, many question God's role during difficult times. In this insightful series, Moody Church pastor emeritus Dr. Erwin Lutzer addresses the key ways God works through suffering and points viewers to God purposes in our pain. These programs include powerful biblical teachings and historical examples of believers serving during trials to impact others for Christ.


Dr. Erwin Lutzer is Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church in Chicago where he served as the Senior Pastor for 36 years. A renowned
theologian, Dr. Lutzer earned his BTh from Winnipeg Bible College, a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary, an MA in philosophy from Loyola University, and an honorary LL.D. from the Simon Greenleaf School of Law. He is an award-winning author, and the featured speaker on three radio programs that can be heard on more than 1,000 outlets in the United States and around the world. Dr. Lutzer and his wife, Rebecca, live in the
Chicago area, and have three grown children and eight grandchildren.


“There are plenty of people out there who say, “Oh, just trust God.” The implication is, you’ll get your job back; you’ll be healed from whatever it is that you have; your marriage will be put back together. We need a hope, John, that will endure even if we don’t get our job back, even if we don’t see justice in this life. We need a hope that endures.”

- Dr. Erwin Lutzer (2020)


Standing Firm in Christ

Does there come a point when you can no longer trust that God will come through for you? What would it take for you to deny the faith in order to save your life or the life of your children? Can God be trusted even in those circumstances?

Mission Partnerships

We believe in joining together with like-minded, Bible-based ministries to make the gospel of Jesus Christ known. This is why The John Ankerberg Show has partnered with multiple ministries in the past few years to join our unique skillset with theirs to help reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our partnership with Faith Comes By Hearing helps us share with those who have never heard the gospel in their native language. In the past several years, we have reached over 3.3 million people in 40 countries in 120 languages through audio Bible devices, and we can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for the future.
