Editorial Reviews

Review

'There is no one who writes with such incision, perceptiveness and constructive irony. This is a book which will speak to readers across both the disciplines and the professions, from academic theologian to Lieutenant-General.' Iain Torrance, Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey 'In this engaging and lively study, George Newlands seeks to connect distinctive christological claims with the more universal moral discourse of human rights. In doing so, he outlines important ways in which Christian theological ethics may appropriate secular claims while remaining faithful to its central theme.' David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh '... fascinating work ... breaks new ground in demonstrating how rich a source for political reflection Christology can be. ...contains a very useful survey of a wide range of literature. The selection of citations is very judicious and the footnotes are often quite as interesting as the main body of the text. This scholarly and enjoyable work will prove an invaluable resource for anyone with a serious interest in human rights.' Times Literary Supplement 'Newlands provides an excellent summary of the various, sometimes contending, theories and practices that have emerged in political and social thinking in the last four centuries... one can only recommend a book the strength of which lies in its capacity to demonstrate so ably that in the twenty-first century a Christology constructed without recognition of the issue of human rights will be a deficient Christology.' Journal of Theological Studies '... an engaging and informed defence of human rights which should interest a wide readership...' The Tablet
