Description

As Christians, we want to make a difference in this world. We want to have an impact not only on our immediate family and community, but on wider social issues. We want to protect the vulnerable and engage with the issues that really matter. But how?

This book shoes us how wonderful, liberating and empowering it is to be made in God’s image – and how this changes how we see ourselves and all other humans, and how we treat them and advocate for them.

Some will feel the call to run for office… others will roll up their sleeves and join the good work of non-profit ministry… and others might simply find little ways to incorporate this vision of human dignity into their everyday lives, and change their community one word, one action, one person at a time.

Each one of us can be, and are called to be, part of this new movement—a human dignity revolution that our societies need, and that we—you—are uniquely placed as Christians to be join.

This compelling book shows you how to join the dignity revolution.

Commendations

I think most Christians could tell you that humans are made imago Dei, in God’s image and likeness, but I don’t think many fully grasp what that means or how to apply that fundamental Christian idea to our most pressing cultural concerns. This is tragic, because it is precisely on anthropology that Christians have so much to offer a confused world right now. This book is overdue and crucial, and should be required reading for all of us.

John Stonestreet

President, the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview

The most important question of contemporary ethics, and perhaps in Western liberal culture itself, is whether the dignity of the person can be grounded in something other than arbitrary exertions of power. Significantly, this question arises at a time of unprecedented frustration with a binary left/right political imagination left over from the culture-war fought by my students' grandparents. Darling's book admirably shows that a properly-understood Christian ethic will avoid the idolatry of left/right-style secular politics while beautifully grounding the dignity of the person in ways which can both claim the conscience of the Christian and attract the attention of the curious non-believer.

If you or your children are wondering whether evangelicals in the public sphere have anything to offer besides interest group politics, read this book. The Dignity Revolution is a terrific introduction to thinking Christianly about pressing social issues of our day. Daniel Darling has found and illuminated the common denominator: our dignity as creatures who are fallen but still made in God's image.
