Bringing light to the dark side of evil, so that it removes the disguise and the illusion, visionary theologian Mathew Fox provides a new perspective on an ages old subject. He calls for an open dialogue about evil and what it truly means. In an era when human beings are fully capable of destroying the species along with the biosphere, Fox points to the roots of evil within, as a way out and through. He stresses the inherent goodness of all beings and the healing power of beauty.
