About the book:
This small, masterly-crafted volume is a wake-up call! Richard Rohr writes, evil is subtle and the evils that are killing us all are usually well-disguised . Addressing the three traditional sources of evil, Rohr describes how Christianity has focused almost exclusively on the individual, flesh level, while the world and the devil basically got off scot-free for most of Christian history . Just how vital it is that we look beyond personal moral failings is revealed though Rohr s gripping interpretation of the teachings of Jesus and Paul. This book offers no easy solutions. We are all complicit in the social evils pervading our lives. Yet, skilfully distilling half a century of teaching and preaching, Rohr leaves us with principles for resisting evil with contemplation and love.
