Why Good People Do Bad Things

And How God Can Help Us Do Better

Why do good people often act in such selfish, destructive, and evil ways? This series helps us face the truth about ourselves and then introduces us to the marvelous grace and mercy of God. Here we see our self-deceptions, our unwillingness to see our selfishness, and our uncanny ability to deny how we are perceived by others and by God. Here is hope for those who have denied their deep need for God’s intervention and grace.
