The Sacredness of Human Life

Full Product Description

This authoritative book is the most comprehensive examination ever of the sacredness of human life. Never before has one volume explored this subject in such a multifaceted way, encompassing biblical roots, theological elaborations, historical cases, and contemporary ethical perspectives. Tracing the concept of the sacredness of human life from Scripture through church history to the present day, David Gushee argues that viewing human life as sacred is one of the most precious legacies of biblical faith -- albeit one that the church has too often failed to uphold. Besides providing a masterful historical survey, Gushee s discussion covers the many current ethical challenges and perspectives that will impact the survival and flourishing of human life, including biotechnology, the death penalty, abortion, human rights, nuclear weapons, just war theory, women s rights, and creation care.Gushee s "Sacredness of Human Life" is a game-changing book that will set the standard for all future discussions of this key ethical concept.

The Sacredness of Human Life by David P. Gushee was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in February 2013. The ISBN for The Sacredness of Human Life is 9780802844200.
