PASSING> Thomas J.J. Altizer (1927-2018)

Dear Colleagues,

I just received word of the passing (November 28) of one of my teachers, a leading theologian who was one of the central figures in the "Death of God" dialogue that started in the 1960's, and an early important mover in the American Academy of Religion. Tom was intimate with many of us in the world of Buddhist studies. His charm, eloquence, and genius will be missed by many.
