Reviews

"This new edited collection from two respected scholars, Elizabeth Bucar and Aaron Stalnaker, is both a collection of penetrating essays by well-known younger thinkers and an assessment of the state of comparative religious ethics in our global times. Religious Ethics in a Time of Globalism deserves careful consideration and wide readership as it charts new directions in thought. I heartily recommend it for anyone engaged in thinking ethically about the religions." - William Schweiker, Edward L. Ryerson Distinguished Service Professor of Theological Ethics, Director, The Martin Marty Center, The Divinity School at The University of Chicago

"Over the past decade, a new generation of comparative religious ethicists has emerged. These thinkers move beyond the trench warfare pitting the incommensurable forces of 'universalist formalism' against those of 'hyper-contextualist particularism' - which deadlocked earlier work in comparative ethics - and this collection brings together a veritable dream team of many of those young scholars. The essays in Religious Ethics in a Time of Globalism explore different modes and matters of comparison in the service of consolidating and advancing the developments that their authors have brought to the field. This is the volume that announces that this 'third wave' in comparative religious ethics is no longer headed our way; it has well and truly arrived." - Charles Mathewes, Professor of Religious Studies, University of Virginia
