Abstract

Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies Frederick J. Streng Award 20161 David Gardiner for the SBCS Streng Award Committee Used by permission of Wipf and Stock Publishers. www.wipfandstock.com The 2016 winner of the Frederick J. Streng Award is Charles R. Strain, The Prophet and the Bodhisattva: Daniel Berrigan, Thich Nhat Hanh, and the Ethics of Peace and Justice (Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2014). Charles R. Strain is a professor of religious studies at DePaul University and has published a variety of monographs and articles on practical theology and engaged spirituality. In this theoretically rich account of two approaches to peace and justice, Strain combines a very personal concern for how to effectively transform our institutions, and thereby our planet, with a thorough investigation into the profound nature of some of our most pressing problems with a nuanced evaluation of specific Christian and Buddhist resources available for the tasks. Much more than a story about two men and their powerful ideas, Strain’s book is a moral cry for good work that employs modern exemplars of two (actually very) compatible traditions as templates for Buddhist-Christian Studies 37 (2017) 265–267. © by University of Hawai‘i Press.
