Publisher's Summary

Dr. M. Scott Peck has inspired millions by combining the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In this final volume of his compelling audio series based on the best-selling book People of the Life, Dr. Peck once again integrates religious teaching with the science of all psychology as he offers hope for healing one of society's most persistent failings: human evil.

In Volume 3, Dr. Peck explores the largely unknown world of possession and exorcism. He also describes the unique relationship between group evil and individual evil, demonstrating how one person can affect or be affected by the actions and attitudes of a group. Drawing on his experiences as a psychiatrist and his observations of vivid incidents of evil in today's society. Dr. Peck takes us further into the dark side of the human psyche.

Told in Dr. Peck's characteristic warm and accessible style, People of the Life, Volume 3, concludes his groundbreaking exploration of the essence of evil and provides a spiritual understanding as well as a way of coping with this age-old problem.

Magnificent book! At once precient yet timeless

M Scott Peck was a masterful psychiatrist and Christian man who was deeply concerned about evil as a specific form of mental illness centering on malignant narcissism as identified by Erich Fromm. it was Peck's contention that this phenomenon be studied scientifically. and it was his hope that this book combined with volume 1 and volume 2 of the audible version would serve as a foundation for a psychology of evil. I highly recommend this book in all three volumes or its paperback version 2 adult readers of all ages end throughout Society who are concerned about the well-being of individuals families groups organizations and the institutions of society as well as the well-being of Nations throughout the world. everything good ultimately hinges on coming to terms with evil which begins with people deluding themselves that is lying to themselves about wrongdoing in their own Hearts Minds and lives.

Part of a whole

This volume is part of a whole. I know, I missed it. This text assumes you have read something of the previous volumes.
