Plough Quarterly No. 10: What Makes Humans Sacred?

Autumn 2016

Featured Articles

cover of What Makes Humans Sacred

About This Issue

The gospel teaches that every human is sacred. Orange-haired casino owners and former First Ladies. Refugee children and Islamist terrorists. Police officers and young African Americans. Unborn babies, always, and also abortionists. Progressive hipsters, prosperity-gospel televangelists, members of Congress, Confederate-flag-waving white nationalists? Sacred. This absurd claim is at the heart of the gospel. Each person is created in the image and likeness of God. Each is someone for whom Jesus died. And if this is true, we have much work to do. The writers in this issue may not agree on the best ways and means, but each challenges us to consider the implications of this gospel of life that makes no exceptions.
