I am humbled and honored by the engagement of these four scholars, all of whom have significantly influenced my thinking. Francis Clooney's pioneering work first interested me in the practice of comparative reading. Lance Nelson's reflections on the ecological implications of a non-dualism provided a springboard for much of chapter three. Laurel Schneider's radical push toward multiplicity has challenged my constructive thinking. Conversations with Brad Bannon, a new dialogue partner, have generated new springs of insight. I am grateful to each of them for the gift of their response to Dualities. I also owe a debt of gratitude to the Society of Hindu-Christian Studies, and especially to John Thatamanil, who was the impetus behind the panel and also presided at it.
