Religion in a New Key by M. Darrol Bryant
Religion in a New Key is a creative exploration of a new situation in the religious life of our time -- the meeting of men and women of different faiths. Professor Bryant argues that this important religious phenomenon signals a new spiritual possibility for humankind. But we have yet to fully plumb its depths. Bryant explores the implications of interreligious encounter and dialogue for the study of religion and for our life as believing members of different religious communities. Religion in a New Key is relevant to the current tensions between different religious communities. Bryant believes that the experience of dialogue points the way to a new relationship between men and women of different faiths -- a way already anticipated by Gandhiji. As Bryant knows from his own experience of dialogue, it leads to a new appreciation of the faith of others and to a recognition of our shared experience of faith across traditions. At the same time, it challenges us to go more deeply into our respective faiths. Dialogue, Bryant argues, can become the new key for the practice and the study of religion. This edition significantly extends the purposes of the original lectures by taking the reader more deeply into the dialogue of religions. The new essays include a further exploration of dialogue with special attention to the Muslim world, a moving account of dialogue as encounter in Buddhist monasteries in Korea and Japan and a vivid account of the Kumbha Mela, the world's largest religious event.

Mennonite Alternative Service in Russia: The Story of Abram Duck and His Colleagues 1911-17 by Lawrence Klippenstein and Jacob Dick
In 1911, at the age of 21, Abram Duck of Schonfeld, Ukraine, was ordered to report to the Azov forestry camp near Mariapol to begin his obligatory term of service. By that year, the forestry service, or Forstei, had been in existence for some 30 years as a Mennonite alternative to military service in Russia. It had played an important role in Mennonite life, both for the communities as a whole in their relationship to the Russian government and the society around them and for the thousands of young Mennonite men whose lives had been touched by the experience. ... Combining a general overview with more individual histories,(Lawrence) Klippenstein's and (Jacob)Dick's book makes an important contribution to our understanding of the place of alternative service in the lives of the Russian Mennonites in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and perhaps gives us a new appreciation of the legacy of that service for the generations that followed. -- Saskatchewan Mennonite Historian reviewed by Ron Peters
