Evil

How our Culture is going off the rails by: Notker Wolf , Lep G. Linder

This book is an indispensable guide for an up-to-date system of values. What once used to be deadly sins threatening human salvation have now become socially acceptable; envy and greed are the driving forces behind a ruthless economic world. The deadly sins are as relevant today as ever before and it would be advisable not to leave the field open, but rather to counter them with a foundation of values that are up to date.

Overview

This book is an indispensable guide for an up-to-date system of values. What once used to be deadly sins threatening human salvation have now become socially acceptable; envy and greed are the driving forces behind a ruthless economic world; there are outbreaks of anger on the streets and in the football stadiums. The name of the game is manifold: stubbornness, impatience, narcissism and disloyalty.
Notker Wolf has taken an look at an interesting development. He finds examples in the Bible, in the ancient myths, in current affairs. His conclusion: the deadly sins are as relevant today as ever before and it would be advisable not to leave the field open to them in our (western) economic and social systems, but rather to counter them with a foundation of values that are up to date. Readers will recognize themselves and our day and age in the mirror of this book.

Dr. Notker Wolf OSB, born in 1940 in Bad Grönenbach in Bavaria, Germany, is the highest ranking Benedictine of the Confederation of the Benedictines. As Abbot Primate of the order of St Benedict, he is constantly travelling to visit the 8,100 monks and 17,000 nuns and sisters in Benedictine communities all over the world. His headquarters are at Saint’ Anselmo in Rome. Notker Wolf speaks 13 languages, seven of them fluently. An enthusiastic musician, he plays classical music on the flute and performs on the electric guitar in the German rock group “Feedback”. He is a very realistic, open-minded and encouraging person with a great sense of humour. Interreligious dialogue, “loving the world of the other,” is an integral part of his Christian spirituality. With his views on leadership, he is frequently sought out not only in church circles but also by managers in the business world.
