Description

What is evil? Where does it come from? How can it be reduced? How do some religions personify evil? What connection is there between evil and judgement? If God is good and full of power, why is the world so full of evil? Will evil win in the end or does good triumph? This mini-documentary outlines Christian and Islamic views on ‘evil’.

Classroom Ideas

Each question raised in the clip should be considered in a class discussion. Students can evaluate the question of whether people have free will and whether people are completely responsible for what they do. Students could record their individual response to the question before the discussion and then see if their position has changed after the discussion.
