In the face of current arguments over issues related to human life and dignity, Christians need to be clear about how their faith speaks to such concerns and what other outlooks have to say. John Kilner's Why People Matter, a timely engagement with a topic of great cultural and societal importance, brings together noted ethicists to make a Christian case for human dignity. Kilner, who has taught in the fields of ethics and bioethics for over forty years, forwards a robust critique of five highly influential alternative positions, showing how a Christian view supports the crucial idea that people matter in a way that other outlooks cannot.
Contributors include Gilbert C. Meilaender, Amy Laura Hall, Russell DiSilvestro, Scott B. Rae, Patrick T. Smith, John F. Kilner, and David P. Gushee.

"A richly substantive yet accessible discussion of the philosophical, moral, and theological frameworks that undermine or support our nearly universal intuition that 'people matter.' In consistently excellent essays, the authors provide crucial insights into the basis for our assumptions about human significance."
—Christine D. Pohl, professor of Christian social ethics, Asbury Theological Seminary
"Why People Matter convincingly demonstrates that worldviews make a major difference in ethics. In contrast to utilitarianism, collectivism, individualism, naturalism, and transhumanism, the Christian view of reality presented in this volume both critiques the claims of competing views and is shown to ground and sustain an ethic in which people truly matter."
—Dennis P. Hollinger, president and Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Christian Ethics, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary
"Christian anthropology is both a timeless and a timely topic, requiring ongoing theological reflection. This collection is a learned and insightful contribution to this task, one that is immediately pertinent and will stand the test of time."—Brent Waters, Jerre and Mary Joy Stead Professor of Christian Social Ethics, director of the Jerre L. and Mary Joy Stead Center for Ethics and Values, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
