Non-Christian ethical beliefs and practices have created profound social change, making the study of comparative religious ethics more important than ever. Christine Gudorf draws out the profound ethical implications of diverse religious beliefs by focusing on common, everyday issues: food and diet; sex and marriage; anger and violence; infirmity and the elderly; work; proper dress; charity; family; and more. Through these diverse situations, she demonstrates how different religious traditions prescribe different rules for action. Each chapter opens with a riveting real-life case study and shows how religious ethics can shed light on how to handle larger issues—while allowing readers to determine the proper ethical response. Complete with summaries, questions, reading lists, charts, photographs, and a glossary, Gudorf’s introduction is an ideal resource for anyone studying comparative religious ethics.
