Is There Anything Good Left in This World?

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2023 /Standard Newswire/ -- Three threads run through all of human history, all of humanity and all of Christendom, and Joseph Pearce has weaved these into his new book about the history of the Catholic Church, THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL: HISTORY IN THREE DIMENSIONS (Ignatius Press).

Pearce is the author of numerous literary studies, including Literary Converts, The Quest for Shakespeare, and Shakespeare on Love, as well as biographies on Oscar Wilde, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. He is the general editor of the Ignatius Critical Editions series.

Christ is "the way, and the truth, and the life," but fallen mankind, although made in Christ's image, is not so pure. In THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL, Pearce invites readers to look for the good and beautiful -- and be encouraged by innumerable saints, stunning creations and incredible art -- in the midst of human viciousness.

Pope Benedict XVI saw this three-dimensional form more clearly than anyone, and, for him, the goodness of the saints and the beauty of art were the only antidote to the dark thread of evil that runs through history. Pearce keyed off this insight to write THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL and present the past twenty centuries to show how goodness and beauty -- stemming from God himself -- work to conquer the bad.

"We look, we look, but with such difficulty do we see the meaning of our lives, because we are lost in the complexity of immediate experience," said Cardinal Thomas Collins, archbishop emeritus of Toronto, Canada. "In order to see and to understand, we need context and perspective, and this is what Joseph Pearce provides, as he traces the hand of divine providence in history and offers us the interpretive key of the good, the bad and the beautiful."
