Using ancient Christian and pre-Christian sources, including sociological and anthropological evidence, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro weaves a fascinating and well-researched tale of the role of envy in early Christian thought. By laying out the historical path of Evil Eye superstitions, Greek philosophical debates on the human condition, and the discoveries of modern scholars in regards to envy's role in culture, "Death by Envy" establishes a unique approach to understanding the ministry of Jesus Christ and a major theme of both the Old and New Testaments. "Death by Envy" represents the first major Eastern Christian theological treatise on envy in over 1,500 years, written in a very approachable style but with extensive footnoting and documentation of sources.
