The author's premise in this book is that we need the biblical message to understand human dignity and human fallenness as a basis for the pursuit of human rights. He believes that scripture provides sufficient wisdom and guidance to comprehend human rights and the need for their protection. This far surpasses the contribution other faiths may have to make to this issue at a time in human history when there is a surfeit of human rights abuses. This book includes biblical studies in selected texts and offers practical guidance on action that leads to the preservation of human rights.
