  1. Avi Sagi (1999). Religious Pluralism Assessed. Sophia 38 (2):93-115.
    Exclusivism is a highly appealing option in religious terms. It reflects the believers’ commitment to their religion as well as their conviction that their religion is true, and that other religions are therefore false. My central argument is that the justification of inter-religious pluralism, while not less well established than that of exclusivism, successfully preserves the social intuitions of religious devotion and commitment.

  4. Avi Sagi & Daniel Statman (1995). Divine Command Morality and Jewish Tradition. Journal of Religious Ethics 23 (1):39 - 67.
    Given the religious appeal of divine command theories of morality (DCM), and given that these theories are found in both Christianity and Islam, we could expect DCM to be represented in Judaism, too.
