Book Description:

"Today our nation saw evil." - President George W. Bush, September 11th 2001
Evil! Like a zombie back from the grave, it has arisen--a word many of us had long ago relegated to Sunday sermons, video games and horror flicks. But of course, evil is not old fashioned, nor has it ever gone away, and may be as robust as ever.
So what is evil? Does it exist? Veteran journalist Bil "Today our nation saw evil." - President George W. Bush, September 11th 2001
Evil! Like a zombie back from the grave, it has arisen--a word many of us had long ago relegated to Sunday sermons, video games and horror flicks. But of course, evil is not old fashioned, nor has it ever gone away, and may be as robust as ever.
So what is evil? Does it exist? Veteran journalist Bill Hart tries to drag evil out of the darkness and hold it up to the light. In doing so, he has written a very readable account of 5,000 years of philosophy, theology and human history as it reflects and refines its notion of evil.
More than an explanation of why bad things happen, Evil: A Primer is a tour through the nether regions in search of what we really know.
