Human Rights
A Christian Primer
Human Rights
Thomas K. Johnson was called to become a moral philosopher by means of a shocking confrontation with evil while visiting a concentration camp as a teenager. Written after 36 years of study and reflection, this book is his mature but brief claim that we need the biblical message to understand human dignity and human fallenness. He is convinced the biblical worldview provides significant wisdom and guidance to understand human rights and their protection, far surpassing other religions and philosophies that address these questions. The book includes biblical studies and moral and philosophical analysis and ends with practical steps all should take.
