Title: The Human Right to Know Jesus Christ & to Make Him Known

Author: Rice Broocks

Publisher: W Publishing Group

Publication Date: Feb. 20, 2017

Format:  Paperback

Length: 263 pages


Most believers view Christianity and human rights as separate, unrelated concepts. Pastor Rice Broocks, the author of God’s Not Dead, disagrees. In his new book, Broocks uses science, archaeology, history, philosophy, and logic to prove the Gospel is not a private belief system but a public—and sacred—human right. He explains the biblical roots for his claim, addresses questions and arguments from a God-based perspective, and urges Christians everywhere to infuse their daily lives with this mindset. If more believers fight to spread the Gospel as passionately as they battle world hunger or human trafficking, the world will be a godlier, safer, and happier place to live.

Blunt, honest, and to-the-point, The Human Right is impossible to put down. Despite coming on too strong in some places, such as in his answer to why God allows evil to exist, Broocks’s arguments are factually sound and simple enough for everyday laypersons to understand. This is the perfect book for believers who have heard the secular view of human rights and want to know the Christian one.
