What is Christian freedom, and how does it apply to such issues as vocation and biotechnology? Here Lutheran theologian and ethicist Gilbert Meilaender tackles these questions and others, such as the importance of memory and the role of suffering in our lives. Meilaender discusses how God not only frees us, but also claims us, and he challenges the mindset of the biotechnological revolution that implies that human beings can make and re-make themselves. Meilaender's astute reflections will appeal to theologians, philosophers, ethicists, and students. In addition, those interested in vocation, spiritual formation, and spiritual guidance will find value in this work.
