It remains the case that economic ethics is still an underdeveloped specialization within the discipline of religious ethics. Contemporary commentators have lamented the still emergent status of economic ethics and recently some have begun to point out new directions for this area of moral reflection. Part of the problem has been the historical fact that not many religious ethicists have taken the time to acquire the required specialization competence in economics, economic theory, and history. Religion and Economic Ethics presents nineteen readings that illuminate the economic side of religious ethics. Contributions include: Economic Justice and the Common-wealth of Peoples, by Douglas Sturm; Economic Systems and the Sacramental Imagination, by Joseph La Barge; Common Moral and Religious Grounds for Uncommon Economic Times, by James F. Smurl; Liberation Theology and the Vatican, by Arthur F. McGovern. Co-published with the College Theology Society.
