Rezensionen
"At 250 pages, the volume provides thoughtful theoreticalfoundations for comparative religious ethics balanced by attentionto both historical context and normative issues." (Religious Studies Review, 11 June 2013) "This splendid volume--from a distinguished scholar andteacher--is the best available general introduction tocomparative religious ethics. Unlike many arid textbooks, it offersa lively examination of the moral life by initiating readers intothe diverse beliefs and practices that animate Judaism,Christianity, and Islam. Adherents of these traditions and theircritics will find much wisdom in these pages."
--Eric Gregory, Princeton University

"Comparative, comprehensive and highly readable, Matthewes' bookprovides an overview of religious ethics in three traditionswithout sacrificing the specificity of each ethical system. Theauthor effortlessly enlightens the reader as to how Judaism,Christianity and Islam deals with highly relevant topics such asfamily, love, sexuality, lying, war, capital punishment and manymore themes in a provocative and graceful manner."
--Ebrahim Moosa, Duke University
