About this Book

Moral Struggle and Religious Ethics offers a comparative discussion of the challenges of living a moral religious life. This is illustrated with a study of two key thinkers, Bonaventure and Buddhaghosa, who influenced the development of moral thinking in Christianity and Buddhism respectively.

  • Provides an important and original contribution to the comparative study and practice of religious ethics
  • Moves away from a comparison of theories by discussing the shared human problem of moral weakness
  • Offers an fresh approach with a comparison of the understanding of the problem of moral weakness between the two key thinkers, Bonaventure and Buddhaghosa
  • Written by a highly respected academic in the dynamic and fast-growing field of comparative religious ethics
