"How can we oppose evil without creating new evils and being made evil ourselves?" --Walter Wink
What we think and don't think about evil is important. Nigel 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.
Endorsements & Reviews-
"This marvelous book by Nigel Wright puts the devil in his place by stripping him of his unwarranted personhood and exaggerated power. Nigel does not in any way play down the reality of evil, but he does show that those who have a tendency to see demons under every bed are more likely to be guilty of a paranoia in which the spirits are imaginative creations from inside their heads." --Andrew Walker Canon Professor of Theology, Religion, and Culture, Kings College (London)
