Spiritual Goods: Faith Traditions and the Practice of Business
A Society for Business Ethics Anthology - now available to students online!
Stewart W. Herman & Arthur G. Schaefer, Editors
The essays, developed by scholars expert in their own religious traditions, were written to explain how those traditions intersect with the practices of business. A common set of questions is posed to contributors representing a broad set of religious traditions: Buddhist, Christian (Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, African-American Protestant, Baptist, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mennonite, and Mormon), Jewish, and Muslim. This volume helps deepen the bonds of mutual respect within increasingly diverse religious traditions in business organizations.
