Every three years, the Society for Hindu-Christian Studies honors a recent work in the field with the Society's book award. This year, at the Annual Meeting of The American Academy of Religion, the Society honored Corinne Dempsey's Kerala Christian Sainthood: Collisions of Culture and Worldview in South India. Along with Dempsey's work, three of the finalists for this year's award are reviewed below: Francis X Clooney's Hindu God, Christian God: How Reason Helps Break Down the Boundaries between Religions, Thomas Forsthoefel's Knowing Beyond Knowledge, and Peter van der Veer's Imperial Encounters: Religion and Modernity in India and Britain.
