Overview

In the first anthology of its kind, Thomas O'Brien and Scott Paeth have gathered unique pieces from across religious perspectives to illustrate the growing influence and contribution of religion to the field of business ethics. Events in the recent past make clear people in business urgently need to focus on the moral dimension of practices and behaviors. Courses in business ethics are increasingly more prevalent in business schools and in departments of philosophy and religious studies, and yet texts for these courses normally pay scant attention to the much-needed religious perspective on what constitutes ethical practice and behavior. O'Brien and Paeth now fill that need with this new text!

Tackling such wide-ranging subjects as Jewish environmental ethics, Zen in the workplace, and Christian social ethics, this text is a valuable addition to any business ethics course.

Editorial Reviews

Culture and Religion
The volume contains an impressive list of contributors....The variety of authors makes for a very eclectic and interesting compilation....A very useful manual.
Religious Studies Review
O'Brien and Paeth provide an exceptional companion volume to the traditional business ethics textbook. Complete with a helpful table that breaks down the topics and thinkers covered in each chapter, the text provides eighteen in-depth articles on a number of issues at the nexus of religion and business . . . The chapters are engaging and demonstrate the vital relevance of religious ethics to contemporary business.
Dennis Moberg
Finally, a well-annotated anthology that addresses the spiritual dimension of business ethics. This is for students who elect business not merely as a career but a vocation.
Journal Of The Society Of Christian Ethics
It makes an excellent resource for persons, whether as individual readers or classroom participants, who want to grapple with the issues addressed in the book's three parts….The editors provide solid pedagogical guidance for using the book in a classroom setting, a superb introductory treatment of ethical theory, and an excellent foray into the way religious ethics affects the practice of business.
