    Charles Mathewes is Professor of Religious Studies and Director of the Virginia Center for the Study of Religion and Co-Principal at Brown College. His research and teaching are broadly in the areas of Christian thought, Comparative Religious Ethics, and Religion, Culture, and Politics. He has recently written A Theology of Public Life During the World (Cambridge, 2008), on religion's role in public life in pluralistic democracies, and Understanding Religious Ethics (Wiley, 2010), the first undergraduate textbook that attempts to compare Jewish, Christian, and Islamic ethics, in the context of a variety of contested moral issues. He is working on a project exploring the nature of the challenges to religiously and morally sound life in our age, across several traditions.
