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

In his characteristic warm and accessible style, Dr. Peck explains that while the notion of evil has been present in religious thought for centuries , the concept has not been fully addressed by the psychiatric community. Dr. Peck links the two to show us how truly evil people are not necessarily criminals but those among us who appear as upstanding members of society. Using individual case studies to present vivid incidents of human evil, Dr. Peck describes how these "People of the Lie" hide behind the façade of normalcy as they continue to plague our lives.

A groundbreaking and compelling audio program that explores the essence of evil, People of the Lie sets us on a path toward understanding and coping with this age-old program. Download and start listening now!

    " Profound in-depth insight into the world of evil from a scientific (psychological)point of view. As a psychology graduate myself, I find Dr.Peck's work highly valuable. Also, he usually lays out the facts as well as his personal findings or interpretations and does not force them on the reader. He offers room for much skepticism, thus -I believe- he is a man who is truly in search of the truth! "

    " This book I consider a must read. "

    " Evil fascinates me. It operates throughout our society largely unnoticed by people who fail to identify it (not as easy as you may think it to be), or by optimistic people who would like to think it does not exist. While Peck doesn't get in detail about the two exorcism he partook in, he clearly identifies evil on three different levels. This book really opens your eyes to the psychology of evil, the shadows, and the real possibility of demons. I recommend this book to anyone, even though I picked it up more for research. "
