The book pays particular attention to the claim that morality is autonomous, having no intrinsic connection to religious belief, and to accounts of the origin of morality offered by some evolutary psychologists. The book defends the controversial theses that the moral ideals of Enlightenment humanism were deeply rooted in a religious perspective, that concern for human flourishing is an authentic religious goal, and that a religious outlook provides the best rationale for a morally based humanism, for moral objectivity and hope. Its analysis of religous traditions shows their diversity, flexibility, and potential for creativel change, and suggests ways in which religions may work together to promote human flourishing, and in which new moral insights may prompt fully human interpretations of ancient religious belief. Controversial, but based on sound scholarship and fully engaged with contemporary discussion of the nature of morality and of religion, this is a positive contribution to the modern debate on relgion and morality.
