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 in this fully searchable collection were developed by scholars expert in their own religious traditions, and were written to explain how those traditions intersect with the practices of business. While there have been other collections that attempt to relate faith to business, none has posed a common set of questions to contributors representing such a broad set of religious traditions. These include the Buddhist, Christian (Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, African-American Protestant, Baptist, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mennonite, and Mormon), Jewish, and Muslim traditions. The purpose of this collection is to help deepen the bonds of mutual respect within increasingly diverse religious traditions in business organizations. All text is presented in PDF format, and it is available online to members of the Society for Business Ethics as a benefit of membership.
"The collection will be helpful to business people who wish to be sensitive to persons of diverse faiths amidst the globalization of capital and commerce." -- David C. Smith, Council for Ethics in Economics
"Each article and religious tradition views business as a legitimate, socially useful human activity, but one that also intersects with higher spiritual and moral values. Helpful essays providing general background on each tradition and the way in which the tradition approaches the field of business are included, along with case studies of how the particular religious tradition approaches one or more issues in modern business activity. ... An excellent source book for all." -- CHOICE, 2001.
