Journal of Inter-Religious Dialouge: Volume 7 Released
By Justus Baird
September 9, 2011
Issue 7 of the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue features voices from around the globe. Once again, we hear perspectives that aren’t always highlighted or included in academic discussions here in the US, and provide a place and starting point for rigorous and sustaining conversations.
In “Madhvācārya as Prophetic Witness,” Deepak Sarma invites us to consider the founder of the school of Vedantic school of dualism, Madhvācārya, as a prophetic witness. Christhu Doss provides a unique and needed perspective on Christian inculturation in “Uncapping the Springs of Localization: Christian Inculturation in South India in 19th and 20th Centuries.” Eric Hall argues against Masao Abe’s interpretation of the Christian notion of Kenosis in his “Kenosis, Sunyata, and Comportment: Inter-Religious Discourse Beyond Concepts.” Finally, Robert Hunt raises an important consideration of how modernity affects dialogue in “Muslims, Modernity, and the Prospects of Christian-Muslim Dialogue.”
In this issue, for the first time, we have invited young religious thinkers from State of Formation to query and dialogue with Hunt’s paper. Their responses both model the best kind of dialogue, and continue the conversation—Karen Leslie Hernandez, Kari Aanestad, Ben DeVan, and Bryan Parys connect Hunt’s scholarship with their own places of experience and formation, bring even new and considered perspectives to Hunt’s ideas and thesis.
