The Freedom of Morality

This major Orthodox contribution to the study of 'ethics' takes as its point of departure the concept of 'person' not only as presented in the theology of the Greek Fathers but also as experienced in the worship, ascetical life and art of the Orthodox Church. In this perspective, morality is the dynamic response of personal freedom as related to authentic human being. The author states that 'What we call the morality of man is the way he relates to this adventure of his freedom. Morality reveals what man is in principle, as the image of God, but also what he becomes through the adventure of his freedom, or 'in the likeness' of God. -- Backcover
