Lately, we have heard ever more alarming reports of a strain of avian (bird) flu that is spreading around the world, following the path of migratory birds and, at times, spreading to humans with deadly results. The flu now has (or definitely should have) our attention.

What is this virus? How does it spread? Is it different from other viruses that have wiped out huge populations of people in the world? Is this just one more item in the news used to keep people fearful of something? If not, what is being done and how can we prepare for it? What should the Christian response be?

In this study, the author shares the information known about the virus to date and what is being done around the world. She then provides some ideas for how to respond and take precautions. Finally, some discussion questions are given to stimulate conversation in a group setting.

Nancy J. Duff is the Stephen Colwell Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary, where she has taught since 1990. She is ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). She is author of Humanization and the Politics of God: The Koinonia Ethics of Paul Lehmann. She is married to a United Methodist minister and is mother to two teenagers.
