In light of the dramatic impact the COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed on the world in recent months,
Pacific Press Publishing Association, Signs of the Times magazine, pastor and evangelist Mark Finley,
internal medicine physician Lyndi Schwartz, and registered dietitian Rebecca Barnhurst worked together
to create a special Signs edition, part of its Truth Matters series.

Inside the 16-page COVID-19: Facing the Crisis with Confidence, readers learn about the disease itself,
including prevention techniques, ways to boost the natural immune system, and symptoms of illness. It
then tackles the relationship between the pandemic and a spiritual worldview by exploring Bible history
and touching on prophecy. Hope crowns the magazine, reassuring readers that even when trouble
comes, God is with us.

The full color magazine is designed as a practical and spiritual response to the most significant global
health crisis of the 21st century. Send copies to friends and neighbors, place them in food baskets, or
have them mailed to entire zip codes. Each magazine also includes an offer to receive Bible studies.
