As the title suggests, the book takes a deontological (moral obligation) position, and does not deal with axiological (value, goodness) Although it can get somewhat eye-crossing at times with reference to certain arguments, it is, overall, an easy and valuable resource for understanding various theories of morality, particularly Divine Command /5.

Morality and religion is the relationship between religious views and morals. Many religions have value frameworks regarding personal behavior meant to guide adherents in determining between right and wrong.

Stephen Evans, Baylor University This book is a valuable contribution both to our understanding of late modern philosophy and to the contemporary debate about the status of moral.

In my view, the book’s greatest weakness is a failure to explore sufficiently detailed real world instances of perceived moral obligation as a basis for subsequent analysis. The single greatest strength of Evans’ theory may be the immediate experience of moral obligation as in the Rabe case with which I opened this review.

Again, I would support the notion of urging people to go far beyond moral obligation in this matter, and have striven to do that in my own life.

But I am arguing that to have a moral obligation to beneficence or positive moral rights, except in the most pressing immediate circumstances, is too much to ask.

Religion and Morality addresses central issues arising from religion's relation to morality. Part one offers a sympathetic but critical appraisal of the claim that features of morality provide evidence for the truth of religious belief.

However, this obligation would hold only with respect to the true religion and not with respect to whatever else claims to be a religion.
