Theme and variation (I try to live a good life. Why isn't that enough?) --
An examination of the social or corporate dimension of Biblical ethics, together with a repudiation of the way of legalism or "Pharisaism" to which is annexed a treatment of the New Testament faith in "Christian liberty" (Why can't I live by a set of rules?) --
