"The Brothers Karamazov" tells the tale of four brothers: the pleasure-seeking, impatient Dmitri; the brilliant and morose Ivan; the gentle, loving and honest Alyosha; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov: shy, silent, and cruel.

A high school student reared in a Christian home turns to drugs and alcohol. A woman tries to stop criticizing others, for ten years. A father knows he needs more patience with his children, but his efforts seem in vain. What do these people have in common? They are all in desperate need of further Renovation of the heart, of transformation of the spirit. But just what is this transformation? Author Dallas Willard explains that its ideal end is when "all of the essential parts of the human self are effectively organized around God, as they are restored and sustained by Him. Spiritual transformation in Christ is the process leading to that ideal end, and its result is love of God with all of the heart, soul, mind, and strength, and of the neighbor as oneself."

Evil is still a four-letter word : the new problem of evil -- What can God do about evil? : unjust world, just God -- Evil and the crucified God -- Imagine there's no evil : God's promise of a world set free -- Deliver us from evil : forgiving myself, forgiving others
With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. But, theologian Wright says, we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present?--From publisher description
