Buddhist-Christian Dialogue: Moving Forward
Thomas Cattoi and Carol S. Anderson, vii
“Fifteen years into the twenty-first century and thirty-four years after the publication of its first issue, where does this transformed academic and cultural landscape leave a journal like Buddhist-Christian Studies? The dialogue between Buddhism and Christianity is now an integral part of the broad academic conversation in the fields of interreligious studies and comparative theology, as attested by the ongoing popularity and a growing number of interest groups at professional organizations such as the American Academy of Religion or the Catholic Theological Society of America. The Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies in North America and the European Network of Buddhist Christian Studies in Europe continue to foster academic conversation and exchange, and, as attested by this year’s News and Views section, the emergence of religious studies and interreligious dialogue in the Chinese academic world appears to be a promising development. Indeed, not only does the conversation take place at a speculative or theoretical level, but in an international context simultaneously marked by increasing secularism and religious violence, Buddhism and Christianity also offer a locus of resistance to a world where economic instability and intensifying climate change contribute to what is a de facto globalization of insecurity. At the same time, recent work in postcolonial approaches to the comparative study of religion has begun to impact religious dialogue by drawing attention to the history of the terms and assumptions that frame our questions. The journal hopes to continue to play an important role in bringing together some of the more important voices and contributions to this ongoing conversation and sharing them with the broader academic community.”
