In The Ethics of Human Rights, Esther Reed constructs a Christian theology of "right," "rights," and "natural rights" and does so in constant awareness of and conversation with the public and political implications of such a theology. Reed's reading of Genesis 9: 1-17, God's covenant with Noah, enables her critical Christian engagement with the issue of rights and her application of this Christian theology of rights to the contemporary moral dilemmas of animal rights, the environment, and democracy.
