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.
-Publisher

The concept of human dignity has been removed from its traditional context in Christian thought, but a compelling alternate vision has not yet emerged. As a result the discourse of human dignity in modern Western society has become increasingly vague and contested, even as new and urgent threats to human dignity manifest themselves.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. In the course of their discussion, the authors address a wide range of current issues related to human dignity, from economic globalization and evolutionary theory to severe disability and biotechnology.Contributors: C.
