Filmed in Israel, South Africa and England, Evil confronts some of the major issues of our time, from the Christmas Tsunami to the African AIDS pandemic and 9/11.

Publishers Description Mass murders, pedophiles, terrorism, earthquakes, disease. It's not good enough, says Tom Wright, to say that if we all try a little harder we can create a perfect world. This is the world in which evil can and does take over individuals, institutions and sometimes whole nations. Filmed in Israel, South Africa and England, Evil confronts some of the major issues of our time, from the Christmas Tsunami to the African AIDS pandemic, from the Iraq war and 9/11 to the murky world of violence and sexual exploitation, and puts them under the biblical spotlight. In this 50-minute film, a companion to Wright's book Evil and the Justice of God, explores with Desmond Tutu in South Africa the potential for defeating evil. There is a solution to the problem of evil, he says, if only we have the honesty and the courage to name it and understand it for what it is.

This DVD gives a good view of Jesus' death from the perspective of being an example of how Christians should live their lives today. He hits hard on the theme of confession and forgiveness as being a way to see god's Kingdom rule come here on earth. Good principles for us to learn here in Northern Ireland. All in all it was a good DVD, well done and presented. BUT then at the very end of what would have been good small group material, he takes a jab at Bush and Blair for the way they've chosen to fight the war on terrorism. He comes across with a "Since they SAY they are Christians they should know better and not be so violent toward the terrorists" type attitude. The ending really ruined it for me. I had planned on showing it to the youth club in our parish, but i feel I must refrain from doing so now. Sad really.
