In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Buddhism in Asia was transformed by the impact of colonial modernity and new technologies and began to spread in earnest to the West. Transnational networking among Asian Buddhists and early western converts engendered pioneering attempts to develop new kinds of Buddhism for a globalized world, in ways not controlled by any single sect or region. Drawing on new research by scholars worldwide, this book brings together some of the most extraordinary episodes and personalities of a period of almost a century from 1860-1960. Examples include Indian intellectuals who saw Buddhism as a homegrown path for a modern post-colonial future, poor whites 'going native' as Asian monks, a Brooklyn-born monk who sought to convert Mussolini, and the failed 1950s attempt to train British monks to establish a Thai sangha in Britain. Some of these stories represent creative failures, paths not taken, which may show us alternative possibilities for a more diverse Buddhism in a world dominated by religious nationalisms. Other pioneers paved the way for the mainstreaming of new forms of Buddhism in later decades, in time for the post-1960s takeoff of 'global Buddhism'.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Contemporary Buddhism.

An inductive Bible study on 1 Corinthians on the theme of Paul's claim that the Cross is the wisdom and power of God. Written for the Melanesian context, the studies are in both English and PNG Tok Pisin. The studies explore the context of the church at Corinth in Paul's day, primarily from 1 Corinthians 1, and the contextual and cultural issues that Paul faced in preaching the gospel leading to his assertion of Christ's crucifixion being the wisdom of God. Then the events of Good Friday, Easter Saturday (Sabbath) and Resurrection Sunday are explored with particular reference to 1 Corinthians 15, explaining Paul's assertion that within Jesus' death and resurrection are the power of God. Throughout the studies contextual issues of relevance to Melanesians are raised. The studies are based around a series of Bible readings and questions with some teaching provided to expand on relevant issues being discussed. The book is designed as a resource primarily for the church in Papua New Guinea though the studies in English are suitable for any English speakers particularly from an animistic background.
