      Mitchell seeks both to de-Christianize the “image of God” through a concept of human rights and dignity and simultaneously to re-sacralize it as “the Western genesis of human dignity presumes an abiding value vested in human beings by a loving Creator” (). In the second half of the book Highfield presents his apologia for how the God of the Scriptures, revealed in the redemptive ministry of Jesus, should not be viewed as a threat to human freedom, dignity, and fullness, but rather as the one who provides authentic versions of those elements of life.

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.

The reviewer says that the book "swims against the tide of the prevailing secularized conception of philosophy. While it is unmistakably a contribution to mainstream philosophical debates about justice and rights, ir refers frequently and unashamedly to the Hebrew and Christian Bibles.

What is more, it accords God a central place in the argument.". God and Human Dignity: The Personalism, Theology, and Ethics of Martin Luther King, Jr. Although countless books have been devoted to the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr., few, if any, have focused on King's appropriation of, and contribution to, the intellectual tradition of personalism.

Burrow argues that King's adoption of personalism represented the fusion of his black Christian faith and his /5. A great deal has been written about King in terms of his life, activism, and though; but I found this book by Rufus Burrow, Jr., "God and Human Dignity: The Personalism, Theology, and Ethics of Martin Luther King, Jr." () especially thoughtful and by: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good.

And God separated the light from the darkness. Three insightful addresses that treat three essential aspects of personhood--love and desire, dignity and death.

At times Spaemann's prose is hindered by a certain Germanic obtuseness--obscure, imprecise, elliptical prose. The final essay on brain death as an adequate criterion for ending a human life is the best and most accessible/5(6). We have an inherent dignity and a high destiny to fulfil. Our “imageness” is distorted, dysfunctional, mangled and misshapen, but it is still our fundamental reality and it is still present (Gen.

Jas. – As images of God, we are created to depend on God, relate to God, love God, and be close to God. In 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.

This book tackles these questions with essays to honour Scotland's foremost liberal theologian, George Newlands. At the very heart of Catholic social teaching is the strong and vital affirmation of human dignity and its fulfillment in God: “Discovering that they are loved by God, people come to understand their own transcendent dignity, they learn not to be satisfied with only themselves but to encounter their neighbor in a network of relationships that are ever more authentically human” (Compendium of the Social.

“Thou shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your might, and with all your strength and your neighbor as much as you love yourself,” because God has endowed every human creature with value. “ What is the biblical basis for human dignity?” and other questions can be found in our Questions Answered section.

The basis for the theme of Human Dignity, the bedrock of Catholic Social Teaching, is that humans were created in the image and likeness of God. Regardless of any factors or reasons we can think of, individuals have an inherent and immeasurable worth and dignity; each human life is considered sacred.

God, Freedom and Human Dignity is essential reading for Christian students who are interested in the debates around secularism, modernity and identity formation.

That’s why in the Bible the great commandment not only deals with our relationship with God but our relationships with human beings. “Thou shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your might, and with all your strength and your neighbor as much as you love yourself,” because God has endowed every human creature.

"God, Freedom and Human Dignity" is a work rich with the thoughts of those who have gone before us. Highfield (with footnotes) displays an incredible familiarity with what people have written on the subject of freedom from the second century to the s: 4.

The man who loves dwells in divinity because God Himself is love. Our love relationship with God is based on the covenant made by the supreme sacrifice of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. What does it mean to love someone. What does the concept of human dignity mean, and what are its consequences.

What marks the end of a person's life. Is personhood more than consciousness. These perplexing questions lurk beneath the surface of everyday life, surfacing only to demand urgent attention in crises.

Whenever we help a Dalit recover his or her God-given human dignity, we are preaching the gospel to them. The Most Rev. Joseph D’Souza is an internationally renowned human and civil rights activist. The concept of human dignity has been stripped from its traditional context in Christian thought, becoming “a moral trump frayed by heavy use,” but a compelling alternate vision has not yet emerged.
