3.1617 Some Similar Major Practices of Roman Catholics and Saivite Hindus.
Religions can influence human behavior and perceptions powerfully by way of their required practices that can involve a full round of seasonal observances, as well as everyday practices that reinforce religions and the outlooks of their adherents. In examining, Hinduism and Christianity in the light of their major practice, concentration has been placed upon the particular forms of Roman Catholic Christianity and Saivite Hinduism. As both religions are to be found in India at the present time, in places this paper discusses ecumenical work now underway on the part of the Indian Catholic Church in order to demonstrate some workable similarities between faiths which are not always apparent to those who observe them. 10.5 pgs. 8 f/c.9b.

5.2145 The Buddhist-Christian Dialogue.
The Buddhist-Christian dialogue can be regarded as a more than academic and institutional exercise, on account of more than a century of interaction between Buddhists and Christians throughout the once colonized world. Buddhism and Christianity have shared the tendency to make their founders more symbolic indicators of faith and practice. Moreover, as this paper also argues, the Buddhist-Christian dialogue has been aided by several points of convergence, including their shared feature of concentration upon a founder-mystic, in the language of the post-industrial world -- an 'icon' -- in the form of an historical person whose symbolism transcends many levels and inspirations. 14 pgs. 27 f/c. 10b.

6.2174 The Theology and Contemporary Relevance of the Letters to the Seven Churches of Asia in The Revelation of John.
This paper will examine John of Patmos' epistles to the churches of Asia as both contextual and prophetical works. It will be shown how, although rooted in the circumstances of their time, Christ's messages (through John) are of clear and present relevance to Christians attempting to repent and maintain their faith in a world that, although in far subtler ways, is just as hostile to the Christian faith as the Roman Empire in the time of John. 13 pgs. 29 f/c. 4b.
