This collection of thirteen specially commissioned essays expands a new intellectual terrain for sociology; virtue ethics. Using a variety of religious perspectives, of Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Quakerism, with considerations of Islam and the New Age, this engaged and topical collection deals with properties of virtue in relation to the person, celibacy, hope, and apocalypse, mourning, moral ambiguity. It also treats the concept of virtue in response to MacIntyre, Bauman, Weber, Durkheim and Giddens. It seeks to move sociology past the disabling effects of postmodernity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'These papers...are...impeccably edited...They occupy the fertile borderlands between sociology, theology and philosophy, and should do much to reduce the mutual demonizing and boundary-maintenance disputes that so often plague relationships between these disciplines.' - Graham Howes, New Blackfriars

'[Kieran Flanagan and Peter Jupp] have succeeded in giving a wider audience to a variety of stimulating papers by British sociologists of religion...this collection is well worth reading.' - Robin Gill, Journal of Contemporary Religion
