On human dignity

On human dignity
In these essays, Moltmann addesses the question of human dignity from the perspective of Christian theology. He explores that the contribution of Christian theology should be. Human dignity requires human rights for its embodiment, protection and full flowering. He demonstrates how fundamental human rights are grounded in God's right, and how they are necessary to prevent the destruction of human dignity.

This collection of provocative essays by one of the twentienth century's most distinguished theologians deals with topics as diverse as the right to work, nuclear war, the Olympic Games, and Judaism and Christianity, within the framework of human rights. Jurgen Moltmann believes that the dignity of the human being is the source of all human rights. If this dignity is not acknowledged and exercised, human beings cannot fulfil their destiny of living as the image of God. In the first part, Human rights, Moltmann urges Christians not to abandon the discussion of and the fight for human rights, but rather re-examine human rights against a background of suffering and struggle. Part Two, Responsibility for the world and Christian discipleship, considers Luther's doctrine of two kingdoms and Barth's doctrine of the lordship of Christ with respect to contemporary ethical and political decisions. Part Three, Christian criticism of religion begins with a masterly analysis of religion and culture in Europe and then goes on to a theological critique of the American dream.
