The study of comparative religious ethics is at a critical juncture, given the growing awareness of non-Christian ethical beliefs and practices and their bearing on social change. Christine Gudorf is at the forefront of rendering comparative-and competing-religious beliefs meaningful for students, especially in the area of ethics. No teacher is better situated to explain the source and value of religious belief for ethical conduct and to provide insight and wisdom for the range of moral responses.Unlike other texts, Gudorf's work focuses on common, everyday issues-including food and diet, work, sex and marriage, proper dress, anger and violence, charity, family, and infirmity and the elderly-while drawing out ethical implications of each and demonstrating how different religious traditions prescribe rules for action. An introductory chapter reviews standard ethical theory and core elements of comparative religious analysis. Each chapter opens with a riveting real-life case and shows how religious ethics can shed light on how to handle the larger issues, without determining for the reader what a proper ethical response might be.
