N.T. Wright explores all aspects of evil and how it presents itself in society today. Fully grounded in the story of the Old and New Testaments, this presentation is provocative and hopeful; a fascinating analysis of and response to the fundamental question of evil and justice that faces believers. Also includes the DVDEvil, which features Wright and Desmond Tutu, who together explore the possibility of defeating evil.
