    I was just reading Oliver O’Donovan today on equality. He had a lot of coherent things to say about the necessity of grounding equality in theology, yet the problems of trying to found a theory of justice exclusively or primarily on equality: Ways of Judgment, chapter 3.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Byron. I have already read some sections of The Ways of Judgment and have found it very helpful.
