– Behavioral science and psychology
– Biblical faith and the history of Christian thought
– Contemporary thinkers

In a constructive conclusion, Schwarz assesses the pervasiveness of evil, human freedom in the face of evil, the personification of evil, and the hope for the end of evil. This book provides the basis of hope for a just and humane life. It is a book for our time.
