Heaven Bound Amid Pandemics: The Road All Runners Come by Ken Rolheiser is a powerful book that communicates hope in the midst of despair, written by someone who has ministered to the sick and the dying. Written within the context of the pandemic, this book explores how human pain and suffering can become an experience calling us to look beyond our mortality to see the beauty of an ultimate encounter with God. As Covid-19 struck the entire world, people started thinking seriously about their values, about family, and about what happens next. This book demonstrates how suffering, lived individually and together, can become a gift when it pushes us to refocus on what is absolutely essential.

This inspiring book will nurture the faith of readers and appeal strongly to Christians. The author writes beautifully about our earthly pilgrimage, finding Jesus during the pandemic, the place of the Eucharist in our journey toward God, miracles and angels, the human experience of loss, grief, and suicide, joy and hope, and the power of living in gratitude. This is a book readers need, especially during these trying times. It is written with heart and filled with relevant and eye-opening biblical references. Heaven Bound Amid Pandemics: The Road All Runners Come is a gift of faith, and the author writes with compassion, allowing readers to understand how God speaks to them in a moment when it is easier to think He has abandoned them. Ken Rolheiser’s book is insightful, filled with spiritual wisdom and lessons, and is a message inviting readers to grow into the faith to which they have been called.
