Book Synopsis

This book examines moral issues in public and private life from a religious but not a devotional perspective. Rather than seeking to prove that one belief system or moral stance is right, it undertakes to help readers more fully understand the effect of religious beliefs and practices on ways of conceiving and addressing moral questions, without having to accept or reject any specific religious outlook. It shows how the similarities between religions and the differences within one religion are more important than the reverse.
