Overview

In God and Human Dignity theologians, ethicists, and biblical scholars from around the world offer a fresh restatement of the nature and scope of human dignity using the best resources of the Christian tradition. In contrast to modernity's often monochromatic accounts of human dignity in terms of freedom or rationality, these essays argue that dignity in Christian perspective is a "many-splendored thing" reflecting humanity's participation in the divine drama of creation, redemption, and new creation.
