Recognizing our resistance to know the truth about our own hearts, Downey calls his readers to join with these thinkers in the search for truth and serious self-reflection. Not for the faint of heart, this book courageously addresses the most foundational question of our existence as individuals in community. What is the nature of the human heart and can we, will we, know it?
"A gifted teacher, widely read in ancient and modern texts, Patrick Downey's book Desperately Wicked will open the minds and hearts of teachers and students to the central questions in the conversation between Jerusalem and Athens, questions that enable us not only to reclaim our intellectual heritage but also to ponder who we are and how we ought to live."
"It is not easy to characterize this stunning and mesmerizing work. Is it a lens into the darkness of Greek tragedy? A window into the daybreak of classical philosophy? A glimpse into the light of sacred Scripture? It is all of the above, but more than anything else it is a performative path to self-knowledge. Desperately Wicked is an ideal introduction for students to the power of philosophy and theology as well as an exhilarating refresher for seasoned scholars."
"This is a fine piece of work, one that makes a unique contribution to Christian philosophical reflection. Professor Downey offers an account of the Christian view of life and meaning that has practical implications for politics and what it means to be a follower of Christ in a fallen world. It is one of the best articulations of Christian political philosophy that I have read in quite some time."
