The Sacredness of Human Life

04 September 2015

THE Sacredness of Human Life: Why an ancient biblical vision is key to the world’s future by David Gushee takes “the greatest moral contribution of the Christian tradition to world civilization” as its theme. After a historical survey, from the OT, through the Early Church and Christendom periods, to Nietzsche, and Nazism, and beyond, it looks at today’s ethical challenges (Eerdmans, £25.99 (£23.40); 978-0-8028-4420-0).
