"How can we oppose evil without creating new evils and being made evil ourselves?"Walter WinkWhat we think and don't think about evil is important. Nigel Goring Wright provides us with a thorough biblical and theological study of the nature of evil, Christ's victory over it and our participation in that victory as we await its consummation. In this revision and updating of The Fair Face of Evil: Putting the Power of Darkness in Its Place, Wright sorts through the options to develop a thoroughly Christian understanding of the danger of the enemies of both God and humanity. Getting our thinking right will help us get our ways of living and acting right as well.
