"Freedom and the moral life"

At Christianity Today, a review of The Freedom of a Christian by Gilbert Meilaender:
Meilaender advocates "the obedience of faith within a life of Christian freedom." He also examines the freedom inherent in God's call: "For large stretches of life, vocation becomes permission to determine the person we will be, and even our duties are transformed."

Meilaender reminds us that the moral life at its best is a natural response to a loving God: "Beyond principles, beyond law, beyond reason, lies a Person." [emphasis added]
