Boardman Lecture XXXVI. Editor and Foreword by Susan Marks.

Abstract

Dr. Lipner’s comparative discussion of Christian and Hindu thought draws upon his own scholarly explorations of these traditions, while at the same time considering the nature of cross-cultural dialogue. How do religious ideas resonate within their own contexts? Which aspects of these concepts are most likely to invite associations in a new milieu? Responding to such questions, Lipner advocates a focus on “love,” agape and bakhti in Christian and Hindu traditions. His analysis carefully enters each tradition before considering shared ground.
