Dignity and Morality

“The entire biblical project, from beginning to end, is about how to honour that freedom – in personal relationships, families, communities and nations. Biblical morality is the morality of freedom, its politics are the politics of freedom, and its theology is the theology of freedom. On this view, we have dignity because we can choose. Dignity is inseparable from morality and our role as choosing, responsible, moral agents.”

Morality, Chapter 17, p. 239
