Description

In these troubled times, what can it mean to speak of a God of love in a world where Human Rights often take second place to concerns for security, and how might Christian Theology best contribute to the promotion of human dignity? These questions are tackled in a volume of essays to honour Scotland's foremost liberal theologian, George Newlands (Professor of Divinity, University of Glasgow). Theologians from Britain, Europe, and North America pick up important themes from Newlands' own work, especially the Love of God and Human Rights. The contributors explore the place of Human Rights in Christian theology, and confront challenges to God's love in a world of injustice. They suggest ways in which human dignity may be progressed, not only through appropriate Christian response, but also though the engagement of theology with culture and the arts. This volume presents a robust defence of Liberal Values as the best means by which Human Dignity may be defended and advanced.
