After the success of our Translators work on a Corona Virus Version of the Bible article, we thought: “Why don’t we actually write this version?”

And then we thought: “Why don’t we give all the profits to help charities that are supporting people during this time?”

And then shockingly we had a third thought in the row (before we were quite exhausted): “Why don’t we let our readers contribute towards it too?”

And that’s what we did: we created The Coronavirus Bible which contains satirical COVID-19 takes on more than 60 beloved Bible stories or parables, including:

  • Genesis 11 – The Tower of Toilet Rolls
  • Psalm 23 – The Lord is my Sales Assistant
  • John 2 – Jesus turns water into hand sanitizer
  • Luke 10 – The Parable of the social distancing Samaritan
  • John 6 – Jesus turns 5 toilet rolls into 5,000
  • Ephesians 6 – Put on the PPE of God!

Amazon is restricting books with the name Coronavirus in them so we’re having to sell this from our own download store for the time being.

We’re going to be adding more chapters to the next (and more expensive) version. 

If you want to contribute an idea or a chapter then simply drop John Spencer (editor of this site) an email with your submission.

All contributors will be credited and receive a free ecopy of the book.
