Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS teaching specific religious perspectives and practices in these very different contexts: (1) public and religiously affiliated elementary and secondary schools, (2) colleges and universities with and without a religious affiliation, and (3) graduate programs that train religious leaders? Even though I am a Christian teaching in a very explicitly Christian context, I learned pedagogical practices that were immediately applicable to my own classroom from Brown's careful work to reflect the Buddha's teaching practices in her classroom. The forum I have suggested above might, perhaps, generate ideas that could help people in a variety of contexts teach in ways that reduce the current suffering the environmental crisis is triggering and, hopefully, prepare ourselves and our students to reduce the crisis itself. Sandra Costen Kunz Phillips Theological Seminary CHRISTIANITY ENCOUNTERING WORLD RELIGIONS: THE PRACTICE OF MISSION IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY. By Terry Muck and Frances S. Adeney. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2009. 448 pp. In an age when dialogue is emphasized in the meeting of religions, this book presents a refreshing and interesting alternative approach.
