From the Editors’ Introduction:
This issue continues to open up new questions in Buddhist-Christian Studies from a variety of approaches. We have included papers from the panels from our 2017 Society of Buddhist-Christian Studies’ panels held concurrently with the American Academy of Religion annual meeting on “Uses and Misuses of Anger in Buddhism and Christianity” and “What Buddhism and Christians Can Learn from Muslims,” as well as papers that were presented at other conferences such as the World Parliament of Religions held in Toronto in November 2018, and a symposium organized by Denison University in February 2019 on “Confronting Mara and Mammon: Buddhist-Christian Dialogue for Resistance and Spirituality.” The themes of human suffering, resiliency, and resistance to structural forms of oppression run through all of these sections, as our authors seek new models for sustaining us in these challenging global times.
