Product description

Review

Sex and Violence are primal forces in nature, and in this well informed book the former Bishop of Edinburgh wants us to contemplate how these forces have used us in their own lives . . .--Ian Pindar "Guardian "

Holloway's reflections on the problem of evil are arresting and profound.--John Gray "Literary Review "

This is an inspirational writer at the height of his powers who does not shy away from personal revelation...His message deserves to be widely heard. It stands between us and chaos.--Bel Mooney "Daily Mail "

A vigorously argued tract...Richard Holloway brilliantly illuminates the divided spirit of man.--Mary Warnock "Observer "

'Between the Monster and the Saint' is an eloquent disquisition on humankind's self-division between our finer and our baser inclinations.--Salley Vickers "Independent On Sunday "

Holloway writes with clarity and compassion, and when whatever differences of means are set aside between him and other friends of humanity, all can agree that the end he has in view - that we should look on one another with eyes of sympathy - surely commands agreement.--AC Grayling "The Times "

Holloway writes with passion and honesty at all times, and the result is compelling.--Robin Baird-Smith "Observer "

"A vigorously argued tract . . . Richard Holloway brilliantly illuminates the divided spirit of man." --Observer

"An inspirational writer at the height of his powers who does not shy away from personal revelation . . . His message deserves to be widely heard. It stands between us and chaos." --Daily Mail

"Holloway's reflections on the problem of evil are arresting and profound." --Literary Review

From the Back Cover

Being human isn't easy. We might think that consciousness and free will give us control over our lives. But our minds are dangerous and unpredictable places. We are susceptible to forces we don't understand. We are capable of inflicting immense cruelty on one another, and yet we also have the capacity to be tender. To empathise, to feel. Why?
