    The main concern of this book is to offer a comprehensive analysis of Martin Luther King’s appeal for civil rights by providing an explication of how he understood imago Dei in contrast to theological thinkers dating from as early as the 5th century. From his position as mediating theologian, Martin Luther King drew at least three major conclusions from his explication of imago Dei that Author: Richard W. Wills.   In this clip, Voddie Baucham talks about the Supremacy of Christ, Man made in God's Image, and the true roots of human rights. This clip is from session 2 of the National Desiring God.

    Genesis declares that God created man in His image. Being made in the "image" or "likeness" of God means that He made us to resemble Him in some, but not all, ways. We do not resemble God in the sense of God being flesh and blood as we are, because God is spirit (John ) and He therefore exists without a flesh-and-blood body. The Image of God (Imago Dei) also has to be taken into consideration. From it flows a whole series of implications as to what a human being is and how he or she should be treated by his or her fellows (see also Luke ). This, in our view, is what the concept of “human rights” and “social justice” is all about.

      Contents: Foreward / Eckart Klein and David Kretzmer -- Historical roots. On the necessary and sufficient conditions for the emergence of the doctrine of the dignity of man and his rights / Yehoshua Arieli -- 'Dignity of man' and 'persona' in Stoic anthropology: some remarks on Cicero, De officiis, I, / Hubert Cancik -- Legal roots of human dignity in German law / Joern Eckert -- Human Reviews: 1.   Like earlier church documents, the compendium grounds the link between Christian faith and human rights in the dignity of the human person as created in the image of God.
