Thomas K. Johnson, Research Vice President of Martin Bucer Seminary, serves the World Evangelical Alliance as senior theological advisor and is Co-chair of the Humanitarian Islam/World Evangelical Alliance Joint Working Group. He is a widely published author on theology, ethics, and human rights and has edited or translated several books and essays about Islam.
A Muslim view:
Just as Evangelicals once led successful “revolutionary movements” to abolish slavery in the 19th century and to establish freedom of conscience, so Evangelical Christians today — in the West and the Global South — may draw upon their rich heritage to help strengthen and preserve a rules based international order founded upon universal ethics and humanitarian values. This book is a valuable contribution to that effort.

It is necessary for contemporary Christians, as they strive to fight for human rights and religious freedom, to join hands with all people of good will, not just with fellow Christians. The ethical theory proposed by Johnson can serve as a suitable and theologically sound platform for such an alliance, based on shared values and concerns.
