A friend recently asked me to write on good and evil. What a daunting task! Theologians and philosophers have filled libraries with the topic for millennia, so a writer must first ask, “What could I possibly add to the discussion?”
Each of us straddles a chasm, with one foot on the good side and one on the evil side. The apt title, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, was a 1994 best selling novel, and a 1997 movie. We are all lost in that garden, and we could re-characterize that garden as our own conscience.
