in this issue, we explore issues of ethics and bioethics, particularly as they are played out and reflected in our religious and faith traditions and practices. These are often the questions that keep us awake at night, or around a dinner table, or at our own desks, studying, and pondering.
What does a particular tradition’s text have to teach us about abortion, for example? What are our religious or ethical responsibilities to animals, or to the elderly, or to the dying?
As an inter-religious publication, we are also interested, of course, in comparing what different traditions might say about the same topic.
We welcome additional discourse—in letters to our editors, in our comments, and in future submissions—from you as you continue to compare, consider, and challenge understandings about ethics.
The Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue™ is a forum for academic, social, and timely issues affecting religious communities around the world. It is designed to increase the quality and frequency of interchanges between religious groups and their leaders. The Journal seeks to build an inter-religious community of scholars, in which people of different traditions learn from one another and work together for the common good.
