Freeing God's Children: The Unlikely Alliance for Global Human Rights


Allen Hertzke

Document Type



Dr. Allen Hertzke, internationally recognized expert on religion and politics, as well as author, frequent news commentator and international lecturer, presented the 9th annual Paul B. Henry Lecture.

His recently published book by the same name provides a window into the changing religious landscape (in the United States and globally) as religious leaders focus attention on human rights concerns and form unlikely a lliances between religious organizations and other interest groups. Dr. Hertzke challenges the assumption that modernization in our world automatically leads to the secularization of society, asserting instead that in the face of global Christianity and r enewed activism, the role of faith in individuals' lives is leading in the opposite direction.
