Description:

A Companion to Religious Ethics is a rich resource for understanding the moral teachings and practices of the world 's religions.The volume is divided into three parts. The first section on moral inquiry covers concepts and theories in ethics, the means whereby religions transmit morals, and the issues involved in comparing different religions. The second section takes an in-depth look at particular moral traditions, discussing the origins, history, and potential future directions of each one, as well as the relevance of ethical categories to various forms of religious thought. The final series of essays discusses the ways in which the religions provide resources for addressing current moral challenges in areas such as ecology, economics, global dynamics, religious war, human rights, and other topics.Written by internationally renowned scholars, this Companion maps the moral teachings of the world 's religions, and also charts new directions for work in the field of religious ethics.
