If God is loving, why is there suffering? What´s the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When bad things happen, who´s behind them, God or the Devil? When suffering touches our lives it often doesn´t make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God. In this poignant audiobook, Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic for over 30 years, describes her personal experience with suffering and provides her special understanding of God´s intentions for us in our pain. The author reveals a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it, and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine. 1. Language: English.

We see Evil every day. All we need to do is turn on the television or radio, open a newspaper, or surf the web and we see Evil touching lives in the forms of murder, assault, rape, wife beating, baby killing, war, or human trafficking. Sometimes Evil touches us or someone we love or care about. When Evil overtakes us, what do we do? Do we trust in a loving God even though we cannot understand why the Evil happened or do we choose to trust ourselves and handle the Evil our way, on our terms, with our sense of justice? Evil Does Not Have The Last Word is for people who were overtaken by Evil and made the choice to handle life on their terms. Evil Does Not Have The Last Word is a message of hope for those who believed they were so damaged that they could never be restored by a loving God who is waiting for them…that restoration and healing can be a reality. Evil Does Not Have The Last Word shows that by trusting God in the midst of trials that what others intend for harm, He uses for good. Evil Does Not Have The Last Word is not only a story of faith but a message of hope to those who may be struggling with how a loving God can let evil things happen to Christian and non-Christian alike. This book shows how easy it is to trust God when life is smooth and predictable but the true act of faith is how you handle yourself and life when situations turn sour or circumstances deadly. Evil Does Not Have The Last Word is a quick, yet poignant listen from a pop culture fan’s perspective and sensibility coupled with a conversational, not theologian, point of view. Dr. Eric Shoars provides ´´snapshots” of his own experiences to give readers insight as to how life looks when lived through the prism of the modern-day superhero and of those in Biblical times. Evil Does Not Have The Last Word includes a personal story from Dr. Shoars of a trauma that led him away from God and how, eventually, he found his way back to G 1. Language: English.

Beyond Good and Evil is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche that expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, with a more critical and polemical approach. It was first published in 1886. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. The work moves into the realm ´´beyond good and evil´´ in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality that Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. 1.

In this groundbreaking book, renowned psychiatrist Michael H. Stone explores the concept and reality of evil from a new perspective. In an in-depth discussion of the personality traits and behaviors that constitute evil across a wide spectrum, Dr. Stone takes a clarifying scientific approach to a topic that for centuries has been inadequately explained by religious doctrines. Stone has created a 22-level hierarchy of evil behavior, which loosely reflects the structure of Dante´s Inferno. Basing his analysis on the detailed biographies of more than 600 violent criminals, he traces two salient personality traits that run the gamut from those who commit crimes of passion to perpetrators of sadistic torture and murder. One trait is narcissism, as exhibited in people who are so self-centered that they have little or no ability to care about their victims. The other is aggression, the use of power over another person to inflict humiliation, suffering, and death. What do psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience tell us about the minds of those whose actions could be described as evil? And what will that mean for the rest of us? Stone discusses how an increased understanding of the causes of evil will affect the justice system. He predicts a day when certain persons can safely be declared salvageable and restored to society and when early signs of violence in children may be corrected before potentially dangerous patterns become entrenched. 1.
