Growing in Love and Wisdom: By Susan J. Stabile
“In the growing crowd of books on Buddhist-Christian dialogue, this one is different. It’s a ‘hands-on’ book. Susan Stabile’s intent is to help Christians learn from what Buddhists do, rather than from what they believe. In practical, step-by-step instructions on how Christians can use Tibetan techniques of meditation, she opens new possibilities of clarifying and deepening Christian experience. This is a book for those who what to practice before they preach, or are preached to.”
Paul F. Knitter, Paul Tillich Professor of Theology, World Religions, and Culture, Union Theological Seminary, New York
“A new standard for the possibilities in authentic, deeply rooted inter-religious dialogue… the book is beautifully written, in a simple yet clear style, making its deft navigation of interaith ideas ring with clarity.”

Feminism, Law and Religion: Edited by Marie A. Failinger, Elizabeth R. Schiltz and Susan J. Stabile
‘This valuable book offers powerful new insights into the troubled relations between religion and feminism. The contributors go beyond facile dichotomies to show the paradoxes and complexities of the human condition. Cutting across different religions, the book offers a salutary understanding of how women experience – and often resolve – the tension between faith and feminism. We are on the threshold of a new phase in the politics of religion and gender, both globally and locally.’
Ziba Mir-Hosseini, University of London, UK
‘The contributors expose relationships between legal idealism, feminist consciousness and religious and spiritual sensibilities that are nuanced and historically evolving. They not only provide pointed responses to secular feminist critiques of religious traditions, they also provide impassioned and caring analyses of ways in which those traditions, particularly when sympathetically interpreted through a feminist lens, can be enlisted in the causes of human liberation and wellbeing, worldwide.’
