Freedom and Responsibility

Christian and Muslim Explorations

Martin Sinaga and Simone Sinn, Editors

The experience of freedom is one of the most powerful experiences in a person’s life, foundational for human agency and the understanding of the human being. In many different societies, the issues freedom and responsibility are urgent and vital. People long for freedom in several areas of life: freedom from political oppression, freedom from economic injustice, freedom from patriarchal dominance and freedom from ideological hegemony to mention but a few.

The contributions in the book give an account of the potential for fostering freedom and responsibility from Christian and Muslim perspectives. They honestly name complex and adversary realities and point to seeds of hope in our societies and religious communities. Thereby they deepen the understanding of human agency and freedom from a faith perspective. Reflections on such basic anthropological and theological questions enhance the commitment jointly to work for the common good.
