This is a book which challenges everyone who is searching for meaning in life, and who dares to hope that it is possible for us to reach out to one another across the divides of religious prejudice, politics and deeply embedded fears ... This book conveys an exciting sense of hope in the face of fearful events. (The Way)
It is an avowedly personal statement which makes it all the more attractive and interesting ... anyone who wishes to engage in real dialogue with Jews will have to come to terms with the issues debated so honestly and forthrightly in this book. (The Expository Times)
... the book is an optimistic one, and benefits from Harries' lifelong commitment to Jewish-Christian dialogue, along with his easy familiarity with both Christian and Jewish sources on the issues of evil, suffering and forgiveness. What stands out in particular is Harries' refusal to avoid the difficult issues that arise and confront them directly and intelligently ... highly recommended. (The Door)
What shines through this book is the bishop's genuine respect for the teachings of Judaism, and an empathy for other faiths that makes him an outstanding exemplar of true ecumenism. (The Independent Magazine)
As a testament to repentance and an earnest of reconciliation, After the Evil is a vaulable contribution to ecumenical debate. (Daniel Johnson, Sunday Telegraph)
... deep, philosophical, and interesting. (Andrew Marr, Start the Week R4)
