Faith and Human Rights

Voices from the Lutheran Communion

A collection of essays illustrating the experiences and concerns of members of the Lutheran churches around the world working for human rights in different contexts and how they relate this work to their faith principles.

The essays witness to the fact that many Lutherans around the world are fully part of the struggle for human rights, for the human dignity that those legal principles seek to protect and promote, and for the neighbor in need. Their examples provide evidence that whatever our own circumstances and contexts, there is something for each of us to do in this struggle.
