For All Peoples and All Nations: Christian Churches and Human Rights
In this new century, born in hope but soon thereafter cloaked in terror, many see religion and politics as a volatile, if not deadly, mixture. For All Peoples and All Nations uncovers a remarkable time when that was not so; when, together, those two entities gave rise to a new ideal: universal human rights. The author introduces the reader to the people of many faiths who, in the aftermath of the Second World War, forged one of the worlds most important documents -- the UNs Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He recounts the disproportionate influence of a few committed, persevering and highly effective religious individuals, along with the supporting groups to which they belonged, on efforts during the 1940s to include and elaborate human rights as part of the UN system that was then being created.
