Description: In Lest Innocent Blood be Shed, Philip Hallie Chronicled the story of the French village of Chambon, whose inhabitants saved 5,000 Jews from certain death during World War II. Showing that good can exist even in the most horrible situations, it touched readers from coast to coast and became a classic text that continues to be widely used in philosophy courses.

Tales of Good and Evil, Help and Harm focuses on the same themes by examining the lives of three unlikely heroes. Returning to the story of Chambon, Hallie first looks at Major Julius Schamling, the SS officer who, despite his somewhat ambiguous moral background, allowed the villagers to do their rescue work. Next comes the riveting account of Joshua James, the nineteenth-century founder of the Life Saving Rescue Service, who regularly risked his life to save survivors of ships foundering off the New England coast. The final section profiles Hallie's own neighbor, Katchen Coley, who started a halfway house in Connecticut. Written with grace and passion, these tales of good and evil shed surprising light on our capacity for greatness, and will resonate in the hearts and minds of readers long after the last word is read.

This is a beautiful book, written with what might be called disciplined moral passion.... Hallie has thought deeply about why the majority of us are morally passive, and he has some provocative things to say about the origins of such inclinations". -- Kirkus Reviews (starred)
