Christian theology refers to the theology of Christian beliefs and practices. The study in Christian theology concentrates primarily upon the texts of the Old Testament and New Testament, and on Christian tradition. Christianity is divided into various denominations, the largest among which is Roman Catholicism. The Catholic Church regards human life as a sacred gift from God that must be respected and safeguarded by all. It believes that every person has inherent dignity. The Catholic Church advocates for both peaceful coexistence and the right to life. Human rights, human dignity, the common good, and the primacy of the human person all serve as the foundation of Catholic political theology on human rights. The objective of this book is to give a general view of the relationship between human rights and the Catholic theology. It will prove to be an essential guide for all those who are interested in Christian theology.
