Why are there suffering, sickness, and death?
Why is no corner of human life and society immune from egotism, fear, tyranny, betrayal, and guilt?
Why does God allow evil to exist?

Drawing on the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the author shows that the roots of evil lie with angelic beings. Schroeder discusses the prehistory of evil in heaven and shows how the polarity of two kinds of evil—with good as a balance between them—manifests in earthly history, education, work, human relationships, sexuality, religion, and technology.

With the increasing influence of evil in the world today, Schroeder considers how prayer, meditation, and angelic guidance through reincarnation allow us to overcome evil in all its forms.
