None of us need reminding that terrible situations exist and horrific events happen in the world around us. We need only to open our newspapers or turn on our televisions to hear of war and violence, or situations of injustice and oppression, or acts of crime or terrorism. When we are confronted by such things, the word ‘evil’ comes readily to our lips. We sense that events and situations of this kind are not just unfortunate and regrettable: they have a different character which we can only describe as evil. Such evil deeds and situations have been a part of human life throughout history, and we seem to be unable to do anything about them. We can, and indeed should act, however, and we can pray. This book asks us to confront the reality of evil in the world and use our ability to change the world around us with the power of prayer.
