Brill’s series Studies in Systematic Theology accepts for publication monographs of high academic quality in the field of the systematic research of Christian doctrinal theology. All books published in the series must employ a systematic method of research. The scope of the series covers the entire history of the development of the Christian doctrine and theological thought, although the series focuses on modern theological questions. Works relating systematic theology with biblical theology are also welcomed. Studies in Systematic Theology is an ecumenical and non-confessional series of publications. It covers studies related to any Christian confession or with no confession at all. Further, the series' primary goal is the publication of intercultural investigations of Christian systematic theology. Because of this primary focus, works crossing the cultural, racial, linguistic, geographic and other borders are warmly welcomed, but other works that are particularly groundbreaking and creative will also be considered. Nevertheless, special attention is given to research of the non-western interpretations of Christian doctrine, and both contextual and global aspects of Christian theology are appreciated.

This book argues that an approach to Buddhist-Christian dialogue where biblical texts are analyzed by placing Christian and Buddhist perspectives side by side is a method which provides a good platform for further in-depth dialogue.

Inspired by the Catholic theologian Hans Küng, this book searches for a model for global ethics by analysing the contemporary philosophical discussion. It demonstrates that the Western model is unable to reckon with exclusivism and difference and presents an alternative model.
