The Root of All Evil: An Exposition of Prejudice, Fundamentalism and Gender Imbalance

Overview

'What force prompts human beings to destroy other people, nations and our environment — ignoring the results and knowledge gleaned from thousands of years of evolution?' This volume explores that question, with which it opens. The book is the product for four remarkable women from quite different backgrounds — Christian, Jewish, Muslim — whose co-operation is a living example of the approach to life and religion that they commend.
