Reviews

These nine essays challenge our understanding of the Bible and compel us to rethink how theology should be applied in the context of the human condition. They confront the reality of everyday life, from the status of patriarchy, gender equality and egalitarianism, to mobility and employment, human trafficking and modern day slavery, to social security, land rights and the displacement of the urban poor, to community participation in decision-making and development, and to the appropriate origins, foundations and norms in the advocacy for and promotion of human rights values. In the quest to speak truth to power, what should be the proper role of Christian counter-culture in the engagement amongst Scripture, human rights, justice, fairness and political systems? Be prepared for an upending of conventional views, an upsetting of traditional values, and an unseating from our comfort zones.Andrew KhooAdvocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya in Malaysia, Co-Chair Human Rights Committee, Bar Council of Malaysia, 2011-2018, Chancellor (Legal Advisor) to the Anglican Bishop of West Malaysia (2001-present), Chancellor to the Anglican Archbishop of South East Asia (2012-2020)

Where Human Rights & Biblical Justice Meet is a wonderful, stirring and challenging collection of essays. The contributors take Biblical teaching thousands of years old and really wrestle with it and apply it to very real, raw and live current situations of injustice and human rights abuses in our world today. They find challenge, wisdom, hope and power for us as the church/Christians seek to shine God's truth and life and bring change into some of the world's darkest situations of injustice.Paul CookHead of Advocacy, Tearfund UK

These essays provide a firsthand insight into a wide range of human rights issues from Nepal to Indonesia. They would be a useful resource to anyone looking to respond, to complex problems that nations face, with God's heart and wisdom.Tehmina Arora General Secretary, Christian Legal Association of India
