A persistent theme in Garrett's writing is concerned precisely with the kind of difference that faith in this truth makes in human life.3 Theologically speaking, ' 104 Embracing Grace this theme is explored under the heading of 'soteriology' or salvation. The question is, how does Christ help us, or who is Christ really for us, today?4 Wrestling with these questions, I want to suggest, has given rise in Garrett's work to more than soteriological responses. It has opened the possibility of a distinctive ethical vision, which in turn is reflected back into Garrett's theological work. This ethical vision and its significance is what I shall be exploring in this essay.
