Fighting Evil : Unsung Heroes in the Novels of Graham Greene Hardback
by Haim Gordon
What can we learn from the novels of Graham Greene?
This book argues that Greene's writings have much to teach us about fighting evil here and now, and about endeavoring to live a worthy life.
In novels that span half of the twentieth century, Greene related stories of evil persons who destroyed the freedom of others and of a few simple people who fought them.
Through these stories he showed us three basic truths: first, evil exists; second, it is possible to fight it; and third, one may attain wisdom and sometimes a very limited glory by undertaking such a struggle.
Gordon's study sets forth its own important lesson: thinking and assuming responsibility for the world, guided by the reading of great literature, are keystones of any worthy life.
