Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Does God Believe in Human Rights? Essays on Religion and Human Rights presents the Table of Contents, the Preface, and the Foreword. The moral values created by many faiths have been among the foundations upon which societies have based their attitudes. It is particularly sad that, in spite of the existence of moral codes, distilled by people throughout the ages, intolerance, bigotry and disregard for those of different beliefs seem to be undergoing a resurgence. Religion may create a feeling of tension in the human heart; the believer may be filled with anxiety because of the remoteness of God and a longing for His proximity. There may be a conflict between human rights and religion, but we should rejoice in the spiritual conflict which perhaps fortifies this.

Keywords: God; human rights; religious principles
